I would have given it 5 stars but the experience was slightly frustrating. We got there just before 4. Before I purchased the tickets, I asked the clerk to confirm their closing time. He said something like definitely by six so I though we would have two hours to see it. However, the staff started closed rooms at 5:15 PM... More

The audio tour was very informative. The palace and the treasury was fascinating, well worth the admission.

Our extended family spent over 2 hours visiting and enjoying the royal palace. Amazing hey were able to reconstitute a good portion that was destroyed in WW2. Excellent religious reliquaries and various crown jewelry, gold and silver etc. It's too bad they couldn't reconstruct the lost greenhouse on top of the palace that looked very fine in the period photographs.

A great place to start your day with. The palace is more like a museum where the royal family stayed. Its recommended to visit this palace before visiting Kind Ludwigs Castles

Found this by accident while visiting and then proceeded to spend over three hours there. The palace itself is enormous and took the majority of time to wander through and listen to the audio tour. Different sections were decorated in different eras of history. Sadly a lot of the original art and furnishings were lost and not able to replicate... More

My husband and I visited the Residenz after a long day of travel from the US to Munich. Even though we were very tired from the trip we were glad we took the time to visit this beautiful part of Munich. There are three parts of the Residenz available to tour, the treasury, the theater, and the main palace. We... More

This was a great attraction with 100's of rooms. It was definately worth seeing and the admission price was very reasonable. I would have like to see more pieces of the original furniture. The rooms were luxuriously appointed, but rather barren when it comes to furniture. Make sure you also see the royal treasury.

This place hosts a very nice Christmas market every December. The clear advantage is that it is a little bit less crowded than the markets around Marienplatz and in the shopping areas. Worth checking out!

How refreshing to be trusted to walk through a European attraction on our own with an audio guide. Being able to soak it all in at our own pace was excellent. This is how many other attractions should operate. For just €7, we got to hear about so much history. Yes a lot had to be rebuilt after the war... More

While we're not really "museum" people we enjoyed two hours wandering around the dozens of fabulously appointed rooms and listening to the audio tour commentary. Some furnishings and accessories were original and others were period representations since the originals were destroyed by war or time. No matter. You get a sense of the over the top wealth in the ornate... More
