For just 7 euros allow yourself the time of at least two hours to walk through this outstanding museum. Great free audio provided too.

This is a must-see in Munich. A ticket for around 13EUR will get you into the main Residenz Museum, the Schatzkammer (Treasure Rooms) and the Cuvillies Theatre, all of which are well worth seeing. The care with which the Residenz has been restored after damage in the Second World War, is amazing. Seeing genuine 18th century (and earlier) furnishings alongside... More

A very surprising attraction with so much history. The audio guide was excellent, and it is strongly recommended to get the maximum from the visit.

Paid for a joint ticket for the Residenz and treasury which was cheap at €11 each and spent a hurried 3 hours in the attraction. Nice you can use a camera and the place is vast and quite varied with security staff you can talk to about the rooms. The treasury is great and I had read about the oldest... More

Didn't give ourselves enough time to see the place. Allow at least 4 hours for this enjoyable palace and treasury. It has been beautifully restored where necessary and there are some exquisite pieces of furniture to see. Will be back next time I am in Munich.

If you are in Munich you must see this place. Its incredible on the inside. There is so much to see its hard to describe it all. You can bring a camera and take pictures in there. Just don't use your flash or they will yell at you. The outside of the building does not look special. But there is... More

Fantastic value. 90 of 120 rooms were open at the time we visited, legs were tired at the end of it so quite pleased. Exhibits well presented and there are lots of them. Free audio guide included. Staff helpful.

Entry to the Residence €7 2. Entry to the Residence and The Treasury €11 3. Entry to the a Residence, Treasury & Theatre €13. We... More

Located in central Munich, this palace museum suggests what opulence might have been in its heyday, but most of the collection is gathered from other places. Given the destruction of World War II this is understandable. But it is a convenient place to visit if you are downtown and the weather is less than desirable.
