Experience a special evening concert devoted to famous artists of classical music. The concert features masterpieces by Beethoven, Mozart, Vivaldi, and Bach in the impressive Hercules Hall of the Munich Residenz. The Hercules Hall was originally the throne room of Louis I and was built after the reconstruction as a concert hall. It served as a substitute for Klenze’s destroyed Odeon and was the most important concert hall in Munich up until the opening of the Philharmonic Hall in Gasteig. It got its name from the tapestries on the wall that depict the legend of Hercules and were commissioned by Albrecht V in 1556.
