Munich Residence

The Residence (German: Residenz) is the former royal palace of the Bavarian monarchs in the city center of Munich. The Residence is the largest downtown palace in Germany and serves today as one of the finest room decoration museums in Europe.

The building complex contains ten courtyards with 130 display rooms in the museum areas. The Munich Residenz served as the seat of government and residence of the Bavarian dukes, electors and kings from 1508 to 1918. What began in 1385 as a castle at the north-eastern corner of the town (the Neuveste, or new citadel) was transformed over the centuries into a magnificent palace, its buildings and gardens extending further and further into the town.

The Residenz is open daily 9am - 6pm (last entry: 5pm) from April 1 - October 15, and 10am - 5pm (last entry: 4pm) October 16 - March 31 with the exception of December 24, 25, 26 and January 1 when it is closed. Admission starts at 6 euro (5 euro concessions) and increases according to how many buildings are visited.
