Residenzstraße 1, 80333 Munich, Germany

See Website

The colossal Residenz, the home of the Bavarian kings, is best visited with a guide you can get you to the interesting parts of it (including the Treasury) and back out without getting weighed down by too much history. The highlight of the entire complex is the jewel-like Cuvilliés Theater, a Rococo treasure where Mozart’s Idomeneo was first performed (in 1781). The theater hosts occasional theater and concerts; ask your concierge if there is anything on during your visit. Seeing a performance in this incredible space is very special.
