Discover how Bavarian royalty lived and governed at Munich Residenz, the largest city palace in Germany. You'll be drawn in by its opulent architecture, elaborate room decorations, and displays from the former royal collections. The complex includes ten courtyards and 130 rooms. Built in 1385, the palace was originally a small, moated castle. The kings of Bavaria gradually expanded it to use as a private residence and an official seat of government. The renowned court theater here opened for public performances in 1795. The complex also houses the primary concert hall for Bavaria's famous symphony orchestra. Though you can't get a guided tour, you can pick free audio guides at the palace museum. Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Munich fast, fun, and easy.

Visited the Residenz and treasury museum on a combined ticket. There is a free attended cloakroom to leave your larger bags and coats. The treasury museum is well worth a visit to see the Crown...

The largest building I think I've ever been in. There are floors and rooms for days. It would take a week to really see everything here. It is a massive house. The old royal residence is really something to behold. Room after room of paintings wall to ceiling full of beautiful art and artifacts. Just make sure you check out the jeweled George and the Dragon it's beautiful!
Royal Palace in Munich. Official residence of the Kings of Bavaria. The largest palace (in a certain Urban) in Germany is one of the largest in Europe. At least 2h30 is required for the visit. The morning route differs from the afternoon tour (due to the size of the palace). Highly recommended, as well as a visit to the gardens (free admission!) where you can admire the current "palace" of Bavaria's state offices - the crystal palace (in glass so that the Bavarians can see their representatives at work).
