Information for visitors

Current information / Coronavirus

According to the current legal situation, an opening of our houses is possible depending on the local seven-day incidence.

The Residence Museum is open at present.

An online reservation via our reservation website is required for the visit (maximum 2 days in advance; booking deadline for the next day is always at 5 pm).

After a successful reservation, you will receive a confirmation which must be presented at the time of your visit. Unfortunately, admission without this confirmation is not possible.

Of the more than 150 rooms of the Residenzmuseum, a large part is open to visitors (only the East Asia Collection, the Court Garden and Charlotte Rooms, the Bronze Rooms, the Reliquary Collection, the Miniature Collection, the new silver and porcelain presentations in the Royal Palace and the Nibelungen Rooms are currently not accessible).

Please take into account waiting times and restrictions such as altered routes or room closures. The cloakroom is only available to a limited extent; lockers are unfortunately not available.

Unfortunately, the Cuvilliés Theatre and the Treasury cannot be visited until further notice.

The official hygiene and conduct rules of course apply for visits to all the sights and notices will be posted in each place as a reminder.

Here you will find a list of currently open/ closed houses as well as FAQs for visiting our sights during the restrictions due to COVID-19.
