Near Residence Museum

If you look at the Residence Museum from the Max-Joseph-Platz, its easy to think that you are in Florence. Because of his devotion to Italy and the Renaissance style, King Louis I had incorporated these aspects into the style of the royal building after his accession in 1825. For the main facade, his favorite architect Leo von Klenze worked on elements of the Florentine palaces, Pitti and Rucellai.The highlights of visiting the residence are the Grottenhof and the Renaissance Antiquarium, the Baroque Emperor's Hall, the sumptuously rich Rococo rooms and the classicist apartment of King Ludwig I. Around 1500 exhibits, including the crown insignia of the Bavarian kings, await you in the treasury of the castle.The residence also houses the Cuvilliés Theater that was designed by the architect, François Cuvilliés, in which Mozart's opera Idomeneo was first performed in 1781.
