Of all the things that Munich has to offer this just HAS to be the best. For the misely sum of €7 you can lose yourself amid the splendour for hours. The building itself is magnificent and despite the serious damage it suffered in 1944 has been put back together really well. Obviously some of the interior and contents are... More

Over 90 rooms filled with antiquities from the Bavarian empire - sadly many recreated after WW2 and the allied bombings. Room became a bit repetitive when they were furnished with belongings from their summer homes, etc.... It was €13 for an adult (entrance to both residence and treasury) and kids under 18 are free. Well worth the price. My teen... More

We enjoyed our visit and found the collection most interesting even though we've seen better preserved palaces elsewhere.

Extensive, over 130 room alone and with free audio guide you could easily spend hours here, sadly the majority of the building was destroyed in the war so most of it has been restored but they have done a good job, The furniture and pictures are original as they were taken into storage during the war. a fascinating building with...

My wife was so impressed with the Shatz Kammer that she returned twice to look at the Bavarian Kingdom treasures! There are many original and historical pieces of art, furniture, and jewels on display in easy to see fashion. My wife recommends this museum highly!

It took us quite awhile to find the entrance to the Residenz, so by the time we did, we were told that we did not have enough time to the Palace, the Treasury and the Theatre. We only ended up doing the Palace, but even with just about 90 minutes, it was more than enough time to see everything. The... More

Grand rooms with lovely furnishings although most furniture was of the period rather than germane to the Residenz. Great place to wander about on a weekend afternoon.

This museum is really amazing, and includes an excellent audio guide as part of the admission fee. Impressive how they were able to reconstruct so much of the palace which had been destroyed or damaged by WW2 bombing. While the audio guide is very informative, it's almost too detailed, and you'd spend many hours if you listen to it all... More

Incredible residence of former bishops and princes. Magnificent history, art and architecture. It's an enormous place with so much to see. Bought a ticket to access everything so we could take a break to eat and continue visiting. The theatre in the Residenz is exquisite and a must see.
