Cuvilliés-Theatre – in Residenz Munich

Discount: 1 € on regular entrance fee

The Cuvilliés Theatre, named after its creator François Cuvilliés the Elder, was built between 1751 and 1755 for the Bavarian Elector Max III Joseph. It was destroyed in the Second World War, but the unique South German Rococo style interior had been removed beforehand and stored in a safe place. It was subsequently installed in the so-called Apothecary Block and the theatre was inaugurated in 1958 and reopened in 2008 after comprehensive restoration.

Last admission one hour before the stated closing time.
