130 Room Treasure Hunt

This splendid building, which dates all the way back to the 16th century, is the former palace and residence of Munich’s ruling Wittelsbach family. Over the duration of their reign, the Wittlesbachs acquired a massive collection of paintings, sculptures, jewelry, furniture, tapestries, and porcelain. Their collection is on display at the Residenz, which still exhibits the decadent lifestyle of the powerful family. Visitors can search through room after room of treasures collected by generations of Wittelsbachs, who used art and material possessions to demonstrate their power. Though the palace was heavily damaged during the war, the rooms have been recreated to be as authentic as possible, giving visitors an insight into what life was like for Bavaria's royal family.
