Munich: Classical Concert Recital in Max-Joseph-Hall

1. Munich: Classical Concert Recital in Max-Joseph-Hall

The best things come in small packages! With wonderful stucco works and crystal chandeliers inside, Max's Joseph Hall is for many a small pearl in the residence and forms the perfect frame for classical concerts. Live chamber music also helps animate the intimate character of the space. The Munich Residence served as the seat of government and residence of the Bavarian dukes, electors and kings from 1508 to 1918. What began in 1385 as a castle in the north-eastern corner of the city (the Neuveste, or new citadel), was transformed by rulers over the centuries into a magnificent palace, its buildings and gardens extending further and further into the town. The rooms and art collections span a period that begins with the Renaissance, and continues via the early Baroque and Rococo epochs to Neoclassicism. Here you can bear witness to the discriminating taste and the political ambition of the Wittelsbach dynasty.

What people are saying about Munich

Wonderful experience. Our tickets were sold out but the venue was able to squeeze us in at the last minute, and I'm very happy they did. The setting was magnificent and the musicians were highly accomplished - and seemed to enjoy themselves. Can't wait to go again!

I almost cried when the music started. With Covid-19, I have not listened to live music for months. The flautist was wonderful, and I think the harpsichord player was terrific as well. Thank you for this experience.

We were very satisfied with the organization and customer service. We had very good seats for the concert at a lower price than on the official website

A lovely concert held in beautiful surroundings. A pleasant way to spend an hour in the evening. The dinner after was good and the staff were helpful.

We were surprised at how well the system worked, from ordering to receiving the cards.
