While we are not huge fans of visiting palaces as they all seem to look a bit the same, we appreciated the patience of the tour guide who delivered the tour in both German and English to accommodate my boyfriend.

You can only visit this place with a guide. What annoys me though is that even the guide could speak English, and in our group there were four English speakers vs. two German tourists, our guide wouldn't speak English at all. English speaking tourists were given a handout with very minimum explanations, and I couldn't help but feel jealous about the detailed explanations the two German tourists got, also it wasn't easy to wait for our guide to finish his explanations to the two Germans in those freezing rooms. Probably will visit again when my German is significantly improved.

This is one of the places where you have to follow a guide to get inside. Unlike other places we've been to, the guide does not speak much English so we couldn't ask any questions.
The palace itself is very interesting.

The tour of the Residenz is quite short and in German. Only a few rooms are available and contain fine furniture, paintings and tapestries. While the rooms are very grand, they are not outstanding. This is not really a priority attraction for visitors.

This is really a palace, and it has much of the furniture, as well as gorgeous chandeliers and painted ceilings in very grand rooms. Entrance to the Residenz includes a guided tour, they are available in German and in English, and are small groups, so there is an opportunity to ask questions. The tour doesn't visit all the rooms, so it can be done in a relatively short period of time, and without feeling exhausted. A great benefit if you are getting tired from a long day of sightseeing, or if you have children with a relatively short attention span!
