“Luxury in the heart of the city”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

I am glad we went but I was not a fan of the audio guide with all of the musical flourishes added. Because they close early (6 pm) we didn't get into the treasury which was disappointing.

“A bit of a disappointment after Fussen Castles”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

Most of the rooms do not have the original furnishings and not even furnished as the original room. Some of it was very beautiful but after just seeing the castles in Fussen I could have skipped this. It is huge and just seems to go on and on. The most interesting room but also very morbid was the room of relics which is a room of decorated bones of saints.

“Opulence Plus”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

Want to see how the REALLY rich lived? Like to see beautiful furniture in a formal palace setting? This is a good place for that. Worth a visit for adults and maybe older children.

“Like most palaces in Europe”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

The place is impressive but much the same as the other palaces of Europe. Lots of gold leaf and paintings.

“Ornate palace, nice audioguide”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

I am not a big fan of palaces and their overly done ornateness. That said, the residenz had a good audioguide, and if you want to do it quickly, follow rick steves' tour to see the highlights, and use the audioguide for some background. We saw the highlights in about an hour and especially enjoyed the shell grotto. The Treasury was also interesting, we spent an additional 45 minutes there.
