If you just visit the big hall, that could be already enough. It is simple bueatiful, beetwen baroque and rococo styles. But there are a lot more, German paintings, including Dürer Fugger portrait. It is worth to visit.

for 7 euros I think it was too expensive, so many more stunning places in Munich to see, so I would not take a special trip to see this place. If you are in town maybe have a look but I would not rate it highly

This Museum has an interesting collection of paintings,particularly early German paintings including a stunning portrait of Fugger by Durer. The Roccoco hall currently holds a surprise that I'll let you discover by yourself. Very few explanations in English however.

The name for a palace seemed to me a misleading term. I was searching for a palace of a stately looking structure. With that in my mind, I missed this seemed rather ordinary humble looking white building twice, probably because the front of the building was fenced off for the surface repair. Finally I saw a wall plaque that identified... More

We liked this gallery which has some good paintings . The centrepiece is the mirrored gilded ballroom which was exhibiting a modern installation on a bed of ceramic cherries. We loved the old nunnery with its high ceilings where we saw the Durer painting of Jacob Fugger and some fine religious scenes by Holbein the Elder. The audio guide though... More

After hearing about the treasures in a magnificent baroque palace very near our hotel, we decided to invest part of our Saturday in Augsburg there. The first disappointment was not being able to buy the tickets with our credit card – another sign that those in charge of some tourist attractions in Germany are still very provincial. We opted for... More

This is a marvel directly from the time of Maria Antoinette, never reconstructed and in excellent shape. Today an top art-gallery. Do not miss the Dürer paintings after the ball hall!

This palace has a magnificent rococo ballroom/ reception room, covered in mirrors and dripping with gold. This is the highlight for me though there is also a collection of baroque masters and German art covering 4 centuries as well, and which extends into a monastery accessible at the back of the ballroom. There are also temporary exhibitions, at our visit... More

The Schaetzler Palais doesn't do justice to its building or contents. It's a monument to German self perpetuating bureaucracy which incidentally houses some great middle age germanic art works. The Munich dominated Governmental art juggernaut set the gallery up some 200 years ago. Try to find something out about it on the web. There's little there, especially about the Staatsgalerie...

The museum is wonderful and the ball room absolutely took my breath away when I entered it. I could have spent half a day there but we only had a couple hours. Definitely worth a visit!
