"Wandering the Residence Grounds" Munich Off The Beaten Path Tip by TempNomad

Munich Off The Beaten Path: 316 reviews and 394 photos


Again, I'm sure The Residence is not really an Off the Beaten Path choice, but it was closed for some big government party on the one day we could have visited. So, being the naughty people we are, we walked right by the crews setting up so that we could at least check out the inner courtyard areas.

I was really disappointed about not being able to go inside, but I'm a big fan of fountains, so seeing this one quelled my sorrow a bit. It's the Fountain Court, and it's lovely, even with hundreds of white chairs set up.

While I am sure the inside of the Residence is magnificent, don't miss walking around the courtyard areas. Especially if you like fountains and statues and so on.
