Antiquarium, Residenz Museum, Munich, Germany
This hall is the oldest room of the Residenz München. 66 metres long, it is the largest and most lavish Renaissance interior north of the Alps. Duke Albrecht V had it built from 1568 to 1571 for his collection of antique sculptures. These antiquities gave the room its name “Antiquarium”.
From 1581 to 1600 Albrecht V’s successors, Duke Wilhelm V and his son Maximilian I, transformed the Antiquarium into a banqueting hall.
