The Residenz is a combination of styles spanning five centuries


The Residenz is an impressive palace set in the very heart of the city. The influence of Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque, Rococo and neo-classicism have all played their part over the centuries.

Germany’s largest inner city palace and one of the leading interior design museums in Europe showcases a number of very interesting exhibits:

  • The Herkulessaal that is today used for concerts
  • The Hofgarten that is over 400 years old
  • The treasury (Schatzkammer) that houses the state coin collection
  • The Cuvilliés theatre
  • The Residenz museum

Opening times:

April – 19th October from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. (last admission 5 p.m.)

20th October – March 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. (last admission 4 p.m.)

The Residenz is closed on carnival Tuesday (Shrove Tuesday) and on December 24th and 25th as well as New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day.


As the Vier Jahreszeiten is just a short walk from the Residenz it is the perfect place to stay. Book now!
