This in-app audio tour offers you a glimpse into the rich history and impressive architecture of Munich. You will explore the magnificent Royal Palace complex and take a stroll along the awe-inspiring Residenzstrasse. Note! This tour DOES NOT include an entrance ticket to the Royal Palace. Buy it on site (€9). The walk starts at Max Joseph Square dedicated to the first King of Bavaria. You will pass by the Bavarian State Opera House which can be easily confused with an immense ancient temple. After that, you will plunge into the ceremonial world of the royal court and visit the Residence, which for more than 500 years served as the seat of government for the royal family. Besides, it is the biggest palace in Germany! Having learned much about the lavish Baroque architecture and statues, you will encounter another notable landmark – Feldherrnhalle, a monument dedicated to the Bavarian army. You will also marvel at the fabulous Theatine church and its interior while listening to our commentary on the Counter-Reformation. You will then continue your walk towards Odeonsplatz, the Courtyard gardens and pavilions, and the beautiful Neo-Classical Prince Karl’s Palace. You will finish the walk in an unexpected spot, standing in front of the gigantic construction of the Museum of Art built in the somber Nazi times. If you are ready for a memorable journey from the Middle Ages through the ornate Baroque era to the 1930s expressed in stone – go on and download the tour!
