Munich Residenz

Guided tour at the Residenz Palace in Munich with an official City of Munich tour guide.

You will visit the Residenz, the former seat of the Wittelsbach rulers. As it did for many centuries the Residenz Palace marks the historical core of Munich still today. A vast ensemble extends behind representative facades; its individual buildings are grouped around ten courtyards.

Particularly noteworthy is the Antiquarium, the largest secular Renaissance hall north of the Alps.

Since the end of the 16th century the vaults and the window reveals have been decorated with sovereign virtues and more than 100 views of towns, markets and palaces in what was then the Duchy of Bavaria.

Included are also the rooms from the early 17th century (Ornate Chapel, Stone Rooms and Trier Rooms, etc.), the splendid Rococo creations (Ancestral Gallery and Ornate Rooms) as well as the Classicistic King’s Tract which was commissioned by Ludwig I and created by Leo von Klenze.

On display are also special collections, such as the silver and ecclesiastical vestment chambers as well as porcelain from the 18th and 19th centuries and from East Asia.
