Location - Residenzplatz 1
The Residenz Museum is located inside the Residenz Palace - previously the seat of government where 'duties of ruling a city' were undertaken by the Archbishops.
Opened in 1923, it exhibits european paintings from the 16th through 20th centuries.
Included in the display are works by 17th century Dutch painters (Rembrandt, Rubens, Brueghel), 17th and 18th century Austrian, Italian, and French painters, and important pieces by 19th century Austrian masters (Waldmüller, Ender, Amerling)
When the Rupertinum was set up, showcasing important 20th century art, the Residenz Museum handed over all its art from this period, and thereafter focused solely on the older European works that you now see.
Complementing the permanent works are additional special exhibitions.
Daily: 10.00am - 5.00pm
Closed on Monday
