What a beautiful rococo theatre, which oozes history. The restoration work done is wonderful, and the theatre almost feels alive. Well worth a visit, and combine it with a tour of the Residenzmuseum and the Treasury.

This gem of a theatre is well worth the few euros entrance fee. Even if you don't see the Residenz Museum itself make time for this. Flash is not allowed so ensure you can take interior shots without.

Part of the Residenz museum, this mini theatre seats 650, and was used by royalty. It is lavish, ornate and grand, worth the small entrance fee.
