Much of the Royal Residenz was destroyed during WWII, but it has been nicely restored. Some of the original furniture was saved, but the most of the original painted and gilded walls and ceilings were destroyed. Many of the rooms have been faithfully reproduced, my favorite were the sleeping chambers:
There were several more wings of the palace we explored, these are just the highlights! We s spent hours roaming around the palace, and finally decided we'd had enough! After a while it all starts to look the same, even though it is special and spectacular.
We finally found our way out of the maze of wings, rooms and halls, retrieved our bags from the bag check, and walked out through the garden. We were starving and VERY thirsty, as they had confiscated our water bottle at the entrance!
We walked and walked until we found a nice restaurant, and decided that a pizza was just what we needed. OK--we each had a beer, too! I think it's the law in Germany to have beer with every meal!
This was a beautiful restaurant! Definitely the fanciest "pizza" restaurant I'd ever been in!
