The maintenance of historical sites is extraordinarily complex and expensive. The entrance fees cover only a fraction of the maintenance costs, which are borne by the Free State of Bavaria. Your donation will help to save historical buildings, unique works of art and magnificent parks for future generations. Every contribution is valuable and particularly welcome!

We would like to ask you specifically for help with the following current project:
The Munich Court Garden is one of the most delightful and best loved places to visit in the city centre. Its entrance archway, designed by Leo von Klenze, and the arcaded walkways with their frescos are among the true treasures of Bavaria's capital.
to the Munich Court Garden
Sadly this ensemble has suffered greatly over recent decades and it is in need of extensive restoration. The Bavarian Palace Department has therefore launched an initiative to fund the important work of restoring the Court Garden ensemble as quickly as possible.
In the first stage, starting next year, the Bavarian Palace Department is aiming to restore the outer surfaces and the roofs of the gateway of the Court Garden and the western part of the arcades between the Theatiner rooms of the Residenz and the Annast Building. The next stage, immediately following on from this, would be to restore the inner surfaces of the arches in the arcade, in particular the precious fresco decoration, and to optimise the lighting as well improve the flooring – provided the funding for this can be secured.
Help us – with your donation – to preserve the fresco decoration in the Court Garden arcades. The Bavarian Palace Department is grateful for every donation to this important restoration project.
