For centuries, the seat of the Dukes, Electors and Kings of Bavaria, the Residence of Munich is undoubtedly one of the most spectacular palaces in Europe. Arranged around seven large courtyards, the vast Residenz complex comprises three main sections: Königsbau, opposite Max-Joseph-Platz; the Alte Residenz, in front of Residenzstrasse; and the Festsaalbau (Banquet Room) overlooking the Hofgarten. The first section of this huge complex to be built was the magnificent Antiquarium, built in 1579 and now part of the excellent Residenz Museum.
