The treasury was breath taking! The wealth was incredible and the intricate construction of many of the pieces makes it almost unreal to believe they have lasted centuries. This was one of the highlights of my trip I really enjoyed this self guided tour.

This main palace of the dukes and kings of Bavaria lets you see just how wealthy and powerful they actually were. The furnishings and paintings are amazing. The audio guide is included in the price, but like many of these it tells you too much about some things and nothing about the ones you were really interested in. I think there was very little English signage but can't really remember. The indication of your route through the building is very poor - it consists entirely of little red arrows on wire poles, which might be OK if you didn't have to go through some rooms twice with no indication of which arrow to take each time.

This is a really, really big palace and it is a long walk through it with no indication of how to cut it short if you get tired or want out. Oh and you can't even get into everything just now because they are doing some upgrades.

This is a huge building, but much of it is a re-building of what was destroyed in WWII. The highlights for me (and you can get separate entrance tickets for these if your time is limited) were the Treasury and the Theatre.

This is a great place to visit if you're in Munich. The collection in the treasury is exquisite. Crowns, scepters, swords, dishes, clocks, alters, etc. The palace is really breaktaking. Many rooms were how I imagine Versailles. You're able to walk through so much of the palace, and at your own pace. There are chairs if you want to sit and enjoy a room. It was just amazing. So much art too. You could spend all day there.
You can't bring a stroller, big bags, etc. They have a free cloackroom. The bathroom was upa lot of stairs, small and a little gross.

Nice if you are into ancient bling but as for me, bring on the beer gardens. Good history lesson but not if you are thirsty
