The residence at Munich is an outstanding attraction for anyone wanting to learn a little about the history of Germany or those that love a walk around royal buildings. The complex has two sections, the Residence and the Treasury and I would recommend going to both (especially if it’s a cold day outside as you can spend hours wandering the... More

It takes a long time to see it, but it is very interesting and so great. Through the sample, you can be traced back to that great epoch of empire I liked so much !!!

I had a few hours to spare during my day in Munich and decided to visit the Residence. Do's Do buy a ticket for just the Treasury and the Residence for 11 Euro. I found this to be more than enough for half a day. Do enjoy the decadence of rococo and baroque, it is truly beautiful especially if you... More

Took a tour of the Reidenz and it was wonderful. Leave plenty of time to fully appreciate it. We did it in three hours but it can take up to 5 hours.

It's palace residence of Bavarian king. Though the building was destroyed completely in world war 2, it's restored fully. Still many roof painting are missing. The palace is divided in 3 sections - residence, treasury & theater. Residence is largest part covering around 90 rooms , all are magnificent. Treasury has all artifacts of the kings , worth looking. Theater... More

This place is enormous! Very interesting, terrific architecture, so much to see, and so many rooms - I believe 130 are open, but it felt like much more. Be careful to follow the arrows around, otherwise you'll miss a whole suite of rooms. The Treasury has some beautiful items on display.

This is a must-see attraction in Munich. So full of rich history of the monarchies of the past who ruled and resided in Munich. The Residenz is beautiful -- and even parts that were destroyed in World War II have been renovated beautifully. Recommend using the free audio tour device handed out at a counter outside of the entrance for... More

Very nice. Very ostentacious. If you like palaces you will not be disappointed. Very large rooms with marvelous art work, etc. We particularly enjoyed our walk through the Treasury exhibit.
