COVID-19: There is currently no obligation to wear a mask. However, we recommend wearing an FFP2 mask or at least a medical face mask.
The Residence Museum is almost completely accessible to visitors (only the collections of miniature paintings and reliquaries are currently not accessible).
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.
In the museum area there is at present no barrier-free 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. Barrier-free toilets are available.
A tactile model of the Munich Residence in front of the main entrance at Max-Joseph-Platz enables visually impaired people to get a better idea of the shapes, structures and dimensions of Germany's largest urban palace complex. The bronze tactile model, measuring 140 x 75 cm on a scale of 1:400, shows a bird's eye view of the Residence with the Court Garden, Residence Theatre and Opera House.
At the Munich Residence no reservation is required for groups. The maximum size of groups is limited to 25 persons. Please note that groups of more than 25 persons must be shared and that each part of the group must have its own tour guide.
Free Wi-Fi is available in parts of the Munich Residence, including the Antiquarium, the Court Church of All Saints, the Imperial Hall and the Max Joseph Haal, but also in the Imperial Courtyard.
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. We regret that wedding shootings inside are not possible. 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.
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 in the Residence complex but you can find several cafés in the immediate surroundings.
