The Residence Museum and the Treasury are only accessible via numerous stairs and steps and are thus unfortunately not barrier free. There is access for wheelchair users, who must however be accompanied by supervisory staff (separate route). Depending on the availability of accompanying personnel, there may be waiting times of up to half an hour.
In the museum area there is at present no disabled toilet due to building work. In an emergency the accompanying person will enable you to use the disabled toilet in the neighbouring part of the building.
The Cuvilliés Theatre is accessible for visitors with mobility problems. Disabled toilets are available.
It is not necessary to register or make reservations for groups of visitors or school classes. You will not usually have to wait at the cash desk for more than a few minutes.
Photography and video recording for personal use only (i.e. no publication of any kind) is permitted in the Munich Residence, but without flash or tripod. Special permission is required – and there may also be a charge – for all photography and films taken for further use, as well as for the flying of drones / multicopters.
No large bags (from 35 x 30 x 12 cm), rucksacks or bulky objects may be taken into the Residence. These may be left at the free supervised cloakroom.
For conservational reasons you may not take your child’s pram or buggy into the exhibition rooms of the Residence Museum and the Treasury. Free buggies are available for the duration of your visit.
No food and drink may be taken into the museum area, with the exception of drinks in plastic bottles of up to 0.5 l. There is no café or bistro in the Residence complex but there are numerous cafés in the immediate surroundings.
No dogs or other animals may be taken into the Residence. We regret that we cannot undertake to look after any animals you may have brought with you. Dogs are allowed in the Court Garden if kept on the lead.
