Another part of the Residenztheater is the Marstall, built by Leo von Klenze. During the 19th century the building was part of the royal riding school. Due to bombing during the Second World War the building was heavily damaged. For many years it was used by the National Theater as a store.
Only in 1971 the Marstall became a studio space and experimental stage and in 1972 it was reopened within the scope of the Olympic Games in Munich.
Today the theater is a centre of contemporary performing arts in Europe.
