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

I was told that I had to see this so I did. But I have been to Versailles and this felt like more of the same. The first two rooms were interesting, a huge fountain and scuptural wall made of shells and lava. After that a huge hall with portraits and adornment and wise sayings in Latin, and after that...

I had mixed feelings when I visited the Residence. It was badly destroyed during WW2, so you don't really see much of the originals of the palace. Some of the rooms didn't have many interesting items, so you were just walking through them. My favorite part of the palace was the grotto, which is different to anything I have ever... More
