A wing of the Festsaalbau contains the Cuvilliés Theatre, it also houses the Herkulessaal (Hercules Hall), the primary concert venue for the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra.
The first buildings at this site were erected in the year 1385.
The foundation walls and the basement vaults of the old castle are the oldest surviving parts of the palace. The Residenz’s development over the centuries didn’t only take place out of the orginal foundation, but rather it grew together out of several single parts and extensions. After more than four centuries, the palace now expands over a former city quarter that includes a monastery, houses and gardens. The entire design includes a multitude of styles including that of the late Renaissance, Baroque, Rococo and Classicism.
