Beautiful, but not original

The biggest part was reconstructed after the war, so it's not original, but still, the palace is very impressive.

The Residenz is enormous and many rooms start to feel repetitive, but it is still very interesting to visit, especially if you are a history buff. The audio guide was free and helpful, although sometimes too long-winded. The tapestries were really interesting, as well as some of the stonework. Cost is reasonable compared to similar attractions, good for a 'rainy... More

I liked it a lot, surely you can't miss it if you visit Munchen. A little tip is going during lunchtime in order to avoid a very long line at the box office. Some of the members of the staff have been quite unkind. Unfortunately, it's not much wheelchair friendly.

There are 2 separate places, the Treasury and the Main Residence. There is no place to have coffee or a drink inside, so best maybe to structure the visit around a break in beween the two to go and have coffee nearby would be a good idea. Do not leave your coat with the Wardrobe people if you are going... More

We went only for the residence itself and that was impressive enough. There is more to see than we could digest, however it was worth it. The palace is so impressive, a must see. The information is very clearly told through the audio guide and the information panels in every room. We'll get back for the treasury and the chapel.

Certainly informative in terms of how the royals lived...it's very big, and the rooms go on and on with much of the same repeated in every room....we left before the end, saw about 90% of it, but really enjoyed it.

Free audio guides help you to understand and appreciate the history and grandeur of this enormous building. We bought the combined ticket to include the Treasury and Cuvillies Theatre which proved to be good value at 13 euros. Surprisingly there is no café in the museum so plan your visit carefully as it can take at least 2 hours to... More

With the treasury next door, it took us about 2 1/2 hrs. to walk through the Residence and Treasury combined. Very interesting and well worth the visit. It is also part of the 14 Day Bavarian Castle Multiday ticket, which is well worth the price if you are visiting various castles and museums in Bavaria!
