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.

As a Segway Newbie I was a little nervous when mounting my ride for the first time…but with Thorstens great tuition we were very quickly zipping through the streets of Munich. The weather was extremely wet, and although Thorsten, our guide, was wet through, he explaining all the sights in an interesting manner, and not cutting anything short due to the weather. The Segways were in good condition and much easier to ride than I expected. A wonderful experience that we would defiantly repeat, or even better, expand to the longer tour. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone, even people who think that Segway driving is difficult and not for them….give it a go!! You won’t regret it!!!

I had a bus all to myself sometimes. The headset information was very interesting. Sometimes I think the timing of the bus and information became disjointed.

Great driver, slowed down or stopped at the photo worthy spots. Very informative, always recommended. We had the grand tour.

An excellent way to see the highlights of Munich! While we didn’t go into every stop, we had a great time.

Very well organized city tour. Punctual in the no too long stops.
