Munich Residence (Residenz München)

The former royal palace of the Bavarian monarch, the Munich Residenz is the largest city palace in Germany and is open to visitors to see its spectacularly adorned rooms and royal collections. The complex of buildings in the Munich Residenz contains 10 courtyards and the museum displays 130 rooms. The three main parts of the Residenz are the Königsbau, the Alte Residenz, and the Festsaalbau, which is also home to the Cuvillies Theatre.

Get a feel for palace life in the Residenz museum which features the collections of porcelain, silver, paintings, and classical antiquities amassed by the Wittelsbach monarchs. The Antiquarium's Renaissance collections is especially breath-taking. Step outside the elaborately decorated rooms to the beautiful Court Garden or check out the Treasury (Schatzkammer) for a display of the royal jewels, gold objects, and ivory.

Practical Info

Rub the noses of the giant bronze lions guarding the entrance to the palace on Residenzstrasse for wealth and good luck, like many of the other visitors to the Munich Residenz. The growth and luxury of the Residenz complex really shows off the power of the Wittelsbach dynasty as well as the cultural centrality of Munich for the Bavarian state.
