We all know King Ludwig for his castle Neuschwanstein, but did you know he designed a lot of The Residence Palace in Munich as well? Once you see all of the gold & filigree you will see that he obviously had a say in the extravagance of the palace. The high detailed ceilings and walls are dazzling as you stare in awe.
You could easily spend a full day exploring the 130 rooms, ten courtyards, exhibitions, & Cuvillie's Theater which is all part of the admission. Possibly the most popular room is shown in my last photograph. It was built in 1568-1571 and according to a local is the largest Renaissance hall north of the Alps.
The exhibition of the royal jewels in the treasury allows you to view crowns, goblets, swords, jewelry, & much more. You will also come upon a rather strange room that holds human bones lavishly arranged in bedazzled glass cases. I surely wasn't expecting the display when I visited The Residence Palace, but it was a unique one none the less that I haven't seen anywhere else.
