Fantastic Palace and Crown Jewels

Palace museum with 132 rooms filled with period furniture! The Treasury has jewels and artifacts dating well beyond medieval times which are exquisite.

A visit to Munich is not complete without a visit to the Residenzmuseum but be warned not all is as it would seem. By this I simply mean that most of the building and many of the original fixtures and fitting were all but destroyed by the allied bombing in world war 2. What remains is probably a better example...

The Residenz is the palace for the Bavarian Kings. It's right in downtown, It's a huge building. Today they kind of splitted it in many attractions. The building, the gardens, the opera house. The highlight are: The fountain in the inner garden and the Crown jewelery, in my oppinion, more impressive than Versailles!

This is the Konig residence. The Bavarian rulers lived here. You can see their rooms and all the luxury they lived in. The jewels of the crown, in my oppinion, are wonderful. Better than those in Versailles palace. Must see.

RESIDENZ - I have to say that at first I was intrigued, I loved the antiquarium and the treasury, but I thought the interior of the Residence seemed to go on forever and I started to get bored of it. Maybe I was just cranky because one of the guards accused me of using flash (which I wasn't, I hate... More

I loved the reseidenz museum. It had some of the coolest rooms I've ever seen, architecture, art, and design wise. Worth the visit if you're at all interested in any of those things. I spent hours wandering

Residence was destroyed during WWII and is being rebuild since the 50's. The majority of the items are not the original ones. Only the most valuable were saved. I liked the theater and some items of the treasury but I think that the 26 euros we payed to see them all were too much

The residence is a few minutes walk from the main square and is well worth spending half a day in. Its split into 2 parts - the treasury and the palace. The treasury contains a number of bavarian artefacts and the audio guide gives a good interpretation of the main pieces The palace is huge and has many rooms, the... More

This is the largest city palace in Germany containing 130 rooms. The South facade is ordinary, but go around the corner to the North face and experience the neo-classical 250 metre long Banqueting Hall facade! Do not miss the Treasurary! It contains the regalia of the Bavarian Royal Family, and a collection of the most important jewels in the world... More
