Munich’s Residenztheater is actually a complex of several contemporary and historical buildings that present fine musical works and live German drama written by famous playwrights. The Residenztheater area is comprised of the new theatre, which was constructed on the site of the Altes Residenztheater that was destroyed years earlier by Allied bombing during World War II, as well as the Cuvilliés Theatre, or the current Altes Residenztheater, which incorporates recovered architectural elements that formerly comprised the interior of the original Rococo structure, built in 1750. The complex thirdly incorporates the accompanying horse stables. The Residenztheater is Munich’s premier venue for contemporary and classical plays, with opera and more specialized works presented in the smaller Cuvilliés Theatre.
- Tour the Cuvilliés Theatre’s interior to appreciate the gilt and crimson opera house of Elector Maximilian Joseph III, which was dismantled and hidden before Allied bombers destroyed its initial home during World War II.
- Enjoy a presentation of Munich’s Bavarian State Theatre or the Bavarian State Opera for a unique live experience.
- Bring your children to the new Residenztheater to experience one of the many plays presented each year in this Munich theatre’s exclusive children’s program.
All of the buildings in the Resideztheater complex are located within close proximity of one another, as they’re situated off Brunnenhof or Fountain Court. Visitors can easily reach the Residenztheater from Munich’s main train station via U-Bahn lines 3, 4, 5, and 6, stopping at Odeonplatz. The Cuvilliés Theatre is the closest to the U-Bahn stop, with the other buildings located a short walk to the south. Several tram stops are also located nearby, making this music and theatre complex easily accessible from all areas of the city, as well as other major cities throughout Germany and Europe.
