As part of a riverboat cruise, my wife & I visited the Palace with an English-speaking guide on 5/5. We enjoyed the details of the many rooms & appreciated our guide's enthusiasm. Having toured quite a few European palaces, we'd put this in the upper 3rd quartile & would recommend it for folks who appreciate history & culture.

We took the guided tour of the palace. The palace was really pretty and seemed very interesting. The tour is only offered in German. They gave us English audio guides to listen to during the tour. The audio guides did not contain the same information as what was being presented by the guide. The audio guides provided about 1 minute per room commentary while the guide talked for about 5 minutes. She did not mention the information that was presented on the audio guide. Do your own homework about the family, history and the palace before the tour and you will enjoy it much more.

This was a painful 90 minute tour which could have been done in 30 mins. Our tour guide spoke German , we had the head sets for the English tour, each of the 17 rooms we when into, our guide spoke for almost 10 mins, our audio spoke for 2 to 4 mins, so you will be listening in German for almost another 10 mins!
It was not worth the time or $!

You can visit the palace only when you book a tour. The guide gives much information, but actually you don't see much of the palace and the cloister. The palace is more or less a must when you're in Regensburg, but the admission fee is a little too high I think.

Beautiful rooms and environment. You can feel like what is to enter a palace! It has a bookshop with great souvenirs and books.
