Went to visit the Munich residenz as a couple. It is not usually our thing but was so glad we went. Every room is spectacular and there is so much to look at. Buy a combined ticket and go to the treasury for an extra €4. Didn't think this justified it's own €7 entry fee

We spent 4 1/2 hours touring the residence.. so much to see.. so much history! I thought we would get bored.. not a chance! It really felt like we were only in there for 1 1/2! Just a beautiful place, worth the time!

A great tour around the royal palace. Very well preserved with some very beautifully decorated rooms. 2-3 hours.

The museum housed many furniture and artifacts from the beginning of Bavarian history. Most of them are restoration as they were destroyed during wars. The interior designs on the ceiling and walls were fascinating, very luxurious and different depending on the era. Must rent the audio to hear the historic facts. Take about 1.5 to 2 hours to finish the... More

We only had few hours in Munich and very happy to have come here. There is a lot of history within the museum, the palace is enormous on the inside and the audio guides are great. Lots of large rooms, halls covered with art works and furniture reflecting the times. Since we didn't have much time we kind of had... More

Give yourselves plenty of time to visit the Residenz museum, treasury, courtyard chapel (where we listened to an exquisite harp and flute concert on New Year's Day) and the Cuvilliés Theatre. Magnificent collections, opulent rooms, glimpses of by-gone days.

This was a very interesting place to learn more about German history. It was a good deal, our kids were free the day we went, and a self guided tour was included in the price. They have a monitored coat check area where you leave your larger bags/shopping bags, which was really nice. Make sure to get the combined ticket... More

This is perhaps 1 of 2 museums you must visit in Munich. (The other being the German museum). It gives you a thorough perception of Munich, it's royals and its inhabitants in general. Well.. mostly the royals. Very fascinating exhibits. The treasury is a must. Be aware that in most parts of the museum there is no heating.

The Residenz Museum in Munich is one of the best example showing how the German royality lived while others tried to survive. Numerous rooms with their treasures, furniture and drawings are laid out with excellent signs explaining their presence. We spend almost an entire day going thru the museum and felt we didn't cover it all. Will definitely go back... More

If paintings, period furniture architecture, jewelry and ceiling fresco/murals are your interest, then the resident is where you should be. This place is enormous to start with and then contains so much artwork it is breathtaking. Make sure you get the audio as this was self-guided or at least that is how we did it.
