The Munich Residenz (MÃ¼nchner Residenz, Munich Palace) is the former royal palace of the Bavarian monarchs in the center of the city of Munich, Germany. The Residenz is the largest city palace in Germany and is today open to visitors for its architecture and room decorations, and displays from the former royal collections.
The complex of buildings contains ten courtyards and the museum displays 130 rooms. The three main parts are the KÃ¶nigsbau (near the Max-Joseph-Platz), the Alte Residenz (towards the ResidenzstraÃŸe) and the Festsaalbau (towards the Hofgarten). A wing of the Festsaalbau contains the CuvilliÃ©s Theatre since the reconstruction of the Residenz after World War II. It also houses the Herkulessaal (Hercules Hall), the primary concert venue for the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra.
