Alter Hof (Münchner Kaiserburg)

Alter Hof (Münchner Kaiserburg) Review

The Alter Hof was the original medieval residence of the Wittelsbachs, the ruling dynasty of Bavaria, established in 1180. The palace now serves various functions. Its infopoint serves as a tourist information center for Bavaria's many castles. Beneath this, in the atmospheric late-Gothic vaulted hall of the Münchner Kaiserburg, there is a multimedia presentation about the palace's history. The west wing was previously home to the refined restaurant Vinorant Alter Hof; it's now closed, but rumor has it that another restaurant will take its place in 2014.
