This is a beautiful building, lots to see. Well restored after much was destroyed. The rooms are quite eye-catching & worth a visit.

Much of this had been destroyed in the war but has been lovingly and opulently restored. Some of the rooms were more basic with a small exhibition. No photos allowed!

This place was rebuild after WWII and it looks the same like before. The movie „The Three Musketeer 2011“ was shot here. Could say that it‘s one of the most beautiful residenz in Germany.

Beautiful palace. Unfortunately only a small part of it is on view. The main staircase with the ceiling painted by Tiepolo, the White Hall and the Imperial Hall are fabulous. It's a pity photography was not allowed. Our guide was very knowledgeable.
