Munich Germany Tourist Information and Travel Guide

The National Theatre in Munich Germany is a historic opera house and one of the city's most iconic landmarks.  It is home to the Bavarian State Opera, the State Ballet and the Bavarian State Orchestra.

The original National Theatre building on this site opened in 1818.  It burned down shortly afterwards and was replaced in 1825 by a second structure.

That second theatre building was then destroyed in an air raid in 1943. The current building was completed in 1963.

The National Theatre Munich is sometimes called the "Bavarian National Theatre" or the "National Theatre Munich".  It should not be confused with the Residenze Theatre, which is located just next door.

This performing arts venue is located on Max-Joseph-Platz adjacent to the Residenz (Royal Palace).
