This museum was a complete surprise. Some of valuable gem stone artifacts, including a crown from England dating back 1,000 years, is absolutely stunning. The Residence was a palace and is huge, so allow lots of time to wonder through the displays. There are English labels on everything.

After visiting the Imperial Palace in Salzburg, our family was disappointed in the English audio tour. It was just boring. Lots of rooms, period (but not original) furniture with little human interest. Not only were our kids bored, so were the adults. We bought the pass that allowed us to visit the Treasury as well, but the kids were not... More

I saw many palaces and castles, but this one is something unusual. though a little bit "kitchy" but what a celebration for the eyes and mind. So many rooms, different styles and glorious. must go.

Very impressive. Lots of things to see. Many rooms and many furniture. You can spend 4 hours in this place. I would not take young children or even teen agers, long visit and they will get bored. If you like visiting palaces this is a must.

Çok görkemli ve güzel bir saraydı. Kralın şapeli çok güzeldi hayran kaldık. This palace is very gorgeous. We enjoy there. We especially adore the temple of the King.

I had to convince my wife because this isn't as well known as many of the castles, but she thanked me for convincing her to come. It's amazing architecture, history, and the museum with the treasures are all amazing. The audio tour is very helpful for the kids, and it makes language less of a barrier.

130 rooms oh art, decoration and royal splendor. Was the main palace of Bavarian royalty. So much to see that we spent over two hours walking through just the museum. Inclusive ticket also includes the treasury with all the Crown Jewels and the crowns too.

Especially if you take the long-tour/route. The only disappointing thing is how much was truly destroyed by the war. If you enjoy palace visits, this will work for you.

The Residenz is an incredible museum. Unlike some of the other palaces you get to see the majority of the rooms. Much of it was reconstructed after WWII, but I think that is typical of many places. I started listening to the audio guide, and found it very informative at first, but it was very long winded. About halfway through... More

The Antiquarium was a majestic hall, much more impresseive in life than in photos. Colorful rooms with nice collection of interior decor.
