In Munich and needing re-confirmation of times when sites open - please and thankyou

Hi Rick Steves readers,

In Munich beginning tomorrow, Friday night, Saturday, and Sunday. Trying to plan as best as possible in an efficient way.

I have searched on the internet and looked in different guidebooks and websites. However, I am finding conflicting info, and wondering if someone knows or has recently been to the following places. I am reaching out because I seek some confirmation. With only 2 days, we want to plan correctly.

Marienplatz - Glockenspiel - When does the show occur? Every hour?
I read that 11am and 9pm are supposedly better shows for some reason? True?

Viktualienmarkt - Hours?

I read 10-1pm on Saturday, Closed Sunday, but the hours on Saturday vary on different sites

Assam Church - Monday -Saturday 9-6. Closed Sunday? Can a church be closed on Sunday?

Residenz - Daily 9-6pm with Bronze Hall, Imperial Hall, and Stone Rooms closed for renovation.

Alte Pinakothek - 10-5 Tues through Sunday

1 Euro on Saturday for Admission

Thank you for your help to help me finalize our plans.

Marienplatz - Glockenspiel - When does the show occur? Every hour? - No. Two or three times during the day. 11am and noon for sure (or used to be). Don't know about 9pm.

Viktualienmarkt - Hours? - Not Sundays, on Saturdays vendors may close any time after 1pm, some may stay open until 6.

Assam Church - Monday -Saturday 9-6. Closed Sunday? Can a church be closed on Sunday? - Don't know about this one, can't see how it would not be open unless for mass only. For me, the Theatine Church is the one to aim for.

Residenz - Daily 9-6pm with Bronze Hall, Imperial Hall, and Stone Rooms closed for renovation. - Correct.

Alte Pinakothek - 10-5 Tues through Sunday - 10-6. 1 Euro on sunday.

Nymphenburg, palace and gardens open Sunday.

Dear Gundersen,
Thank you so much for your quick reply. I appreciate you taking the time to give your comments and help with the times.
It is hard when different books and the internet can give different information.
Thanks again.
