One of the most impressive buildings in Europe, the Residenz Building is a magnificent palace set in the very heart of Munich and was once home to Bavarian kings.


Featuring a range of architectural styles influenced by the Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque, Rococo and Neo-Classical periods, it is Germany’s largest inner city palace and one of the leading interior design museums in Europe, showcasing a number of very interesting exhibits:

  • The Herkulessaal (Hercules Hall) that is today used for concerts
  • The Hofgarten which is over 400 years old
  • The Treasury (Schatzkammer) which 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.
