“No english guide.”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

This is one of the places where you have to follow a guide to get inside. Unlike other places we've been to, the guide does not speak much English so we couldn't ask any questions.
The palace itself is very interesting.

“Reasonably interesting”
Reviewed September 30, 2013

The tour of the Residenz is quite short and in German. Only a few rooms are available and contain fine furniture, paintings and tapestries. While the rooms are very grand, they are not outstanding. This is not really a priority attraction for visitors.

“Definitely worth seeing”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

This is really a palace, and it has much of the furniture, as well as gorgeous chandeliers and painted ceilings in very grand rooms. Entrance to the Residenz includes a guided tour, they are available in German and in English, and are small groups, so there is an opportunity to ask questions. The tour doesn't visit all the rooms, so it can be done in a relatively short period of time, and without feeling exhausted. A great benefit if you are getting tired from a long day of sightseeing, or if you have children with a relatively short attention span!

“Beautiful palace”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

But no English tour. It definitely seems very interesting, but the printed English guides are not doing it justice. The rose garden at the back is nice and the views of the city are lovely. The big plus is the old city itself, it is just gorgeous, with lots of interesting places and old buildings.

“German Tour Only?!”
Reviewed July 20, 2013

Only way to see the inside of this place is to go on a guided tour. No English tour unless you're on a reserved group tour, but they provide written English guides for three wings of Neue Residenz. Tours are provided every 10-15 minutes. German speakers seemed to have a very good reaction to the guide's explanation. Compare to some other castle tours in the area, I wasn't too impressed with this one. Still, they have a nice collection of sacred paintings and some other collections.
