This enormous city palace contains some truly stunning rooms and treasures, not least the old Antiquarium hall. The Treasury has some of the most precious and historically significant works of art that I've ever seen collected in one place. Give yourself lots of time here!

The residence of the bavarian ruler is close to the center and is definetely on the mandatory list. You can see luxurious sleeping rooms to glamourous audience saloons. The treasury is an opulent optical feast on medieval and even older jewelry, gem encrusted statues, weapons, medals and luxury goods.

I had seen a lot of pictures of this place and tried to visit once in the summer, but because it was so crowded, decided to postpone to winter.

I visited the Munich Residence and went in the Treasury first. It has a marvellous collection including the oldest known English crown which was for a queen and a king's crown that was so big it looked like it would fit round my waist!

This is where the Bavarian royalty lived for centuries. It is interesting. Much of it is reconstruction because of the destruction of WW II.

I got a three in one ticket for treasury, munich residence and theater. It is not worth to buy separately. This museum allows photo taking but didn't allow bags. The theater looks impressive.
