Such beautiful details in the rooms and halls of this residence. There is also so much history! Make sure you pick up an audio device before beginning the tour.

Kids (10 & 12) and adults loved seeing the Residence and Treasury in Munich. The Residence is huge, but you have the option of taking the short or long tour depending on what your group is up for. We did the short tour and it was plenty for the kids. They were stunned by the opulence of the palace. In... More

The palace is HUGE and very close to the city center. The treasury is also a must see. During the tour you have the option to go the quick or long route...I highly recommend the long route as the best rooms are on that path.

This place is a wonderful example of German art and craftsmanship from throughout the centuries. The miniatures alone are stunning along with one of a kind jewelry and folk art, the collection in the two buildings is impressive.

in the very centre of Munich, not very often seen this kind of oppulence and grandeur. Well preserved? The Grand Tour has you occupied for several interesting hours.

This is the summer palace and is beautifully maintained and furnished. It was just one beautiful room after another, much better than Nymphenburg palace. the treasury is full of jewels, gold, crowns, and church artifacts. The theatre was a bit hard to find but is very nice. for more information see my blog Rauhala Ramblers at sharonr1947.blogspot.com

We had completed theRomantic road, and visited the Linderhof Palace. We expected more I'm afraid. It's a magnificent place but wasn't, for us, a patch on the others. Yes it's beautiful but we found it a little hard going. The audio guides dragged it out a bit and we ended up trudging through room upon room without even stopping. The... More

A must see when in Munich. Allow for at least two hours. The treasury tour was less interesting but if you have the time still worth your effort
