This marvelous palace served as the residence of the Bavarian kings from 1508 to 1918. Since 1920, it is open to its visitors as a museum. Well worth a visit for any history buff, it showcases beautiful architecture as well as lavishly decorated rooms. Its greatest attraction though is the treasury.
The palace is divided into two main parts. The Residenz Museum shows extensive collections of paintings, porcelain, European bronze art, and many more.
Jewels belonging to the Wittelsbach dynasty are on display in the Treasury. Some of the items from this collection go back to the Middle Ages. Highlight include the Bavarian crown jewels and the royal insignia.
