Description

Munich city is home to several ages-old buildings and numerous museums. The city’s name came from the Old German term “Munichen”, which means “by the monks”, connected to the former monastery that spawned it. This city’s history is an undiscovered treasure chest of lesser-known stories and local legends. Munich's history revolves around the love story of King Ludwig I and Lola Montez, a Spanish dancer who ignited a Revolution. It is about the hometown of a young German girl, who later on became the wife of Hitler, Eva Braun, where a carpenter, Georg Elser, tried to prevent the outbreak of WWII by planning a very daring assassination of the Führer’s life. Let's proceed with an inside visit to the Residenz Palace, which is the former royal palace of the Wittelsbach monarchs. The Residenz is the most populous city palace with medieval, renaissance, baroque, rococo and neoclassical architecture, room decorations, and a very large collection of former royal possessions. The evolution of power and wealth is very present in this residential complex that has evolved over the centuries, and its architecture mirrors the reflection of history in several styles. Take our guide with you to see and learn all of the details of this 5 centuries-old palace.
