Munich Residenz

By now, I live already a few months in Munich and therefore it is also time, to show you a little bit more of my new "hometown". So, I decided to start with the Munich Residenz, which is a palace in the center of Munich.

The Residenz originated as a small moated castle, built in 1385, and was gradually expanded by the Wittelsbach rulers who used it until 1918 as their residence and seat of government. With 10 courtyards and 130 rooms it is also the largest city palace in Germany and a must see while visiting town. 

Inside, you will find valuable furniture, paintings and sculptures of four different centuries but also a theatre and a treasury with ivory work and crowns.
