I visited everything in 1 1/2 hours. Took my wife and her female friend 3 hours. Took a nap outside in the sun. Of course the Opera house was closed that day, maybe that would have used up another 15 minutes.

You need at least 3-4 hours here as there are so many rooms and so much history, furniture and rooms to look at. A free hand held audio guide in your preferred language is issued to you after you have paid your entry ticket. There...More

The residence is an incredible place. It was nearly completely restored after Allied bombing in WWII. It shows how kings lived. The displays in the treasury are worth seeing to imagine the enormous wealth.

We did the general walking tour and the treasury in October of 2017. Incredible displays of Bavarian history. Definitely worth the 2-3 hours we took to view all of the items and rooms. Recommended stop while in Munich.

The internal size of the building is amazing. The reconstruction work of a number of rooms is of outstanding design and quality. Thats not to say the rest of the building is dull but the rooms are not dressed correctly which is a shame.
