The official town residence of the Bavarian royalty boasts an incredible array of nicely decorated rooms and halls from the early renaissance up to the end of the 19th century. You can visit on your own pace, using an electronic device, but there are comprehensive notices in german and in english displayed everywhere. The maze of buildings, rooms and corridors... More

The residence is enormous as was the wealth and power of those who graced these rooms. Unfortunately, much was destroyed in the war and has been reconstructed. This is a great activity to escape the summer heat or for a rainy day.

There is a great deal to see at this museum, especially for those interested in Renaissance art and sculpture. The staff could be a little more friendly and helpful, but overall this is a great museum for education and historical interest. I would recommend to family and friends.

This palace is amazing! The tour of the rooms is amazing! There are so many rooms to explore. It is definitely worth the money. The tour is by audio-guide and I would recommend only listening to what interests you or you will never finish the tour. I took the long tour but again did not listen to the info for... More

This was one of the stops on the Hop on Hop off bus. Well worth the stop. You can spend as much time here as you like. The inside is very interesting and the garden is fantastic! Could not enjoy it as much as we would have liked as it was raining on the day of our visit

Enjoyed the treasury - had a really good audio guide which was a hand-held paddle with numbers corresponding to exhibits. Could stop and start at will. Stunning crowns and artefacts. Palace also stunning but you had to go round in one direction which meant you had to allow plenty of time.

It probably depends on your tour guide but mine was very informed and encouraged everyone to ask questions. Very informative. Never rushed to go through the museum.

Went on a Sunday as everything is usually closed. Bought the maxi ticket for both Residenz and Schatzkammer. In the Residenz, the way to walk is highlighted by ARROWS. Not unlike IKEA, which is perfectly fine UNTIL... you come across arrows pointing in both directions, manned by what i initailly thought was an attack dog but ended up as a... More
