Beautiful place to visit. Its not huge and you can finish all of it in an afternoon. You can not take pictures and you have to put away your phone. The tours are short and very enjoyable. There seems to be a lot of tourist...More

Having already visited Versailles a week before, we should not have expected the same degree of glitz and gild. It was still very impressive. Even better was the private tasting in the wine cellar underneath the palace following the tour.

This is undoubtedly the #1 attraction for visitors to Wuerzburg, and with good reason. The palace was bombed during the final days of W.W. II, damaging priceless works of art by Tiepolo and others. Careful restoration of the contents has taken nearly 20 years, but...More

It is so difficult to comprehend how such amazing structures were built and decorated all those years ago and were then repaired following the devastation of WW2. This residence and it's grounds are a not-to-be-missed event if visiting Wurzburg....More

Well-restored after WW II damage it shows the excesses of the prince bishops with Baroque and Rococo ostentation. Impressive grand staircase, mirror-room, beautiful frescoes and stucco work. Well-kept gardens. Must use a tour, a limited number available in English. Interesting for anyone who has read...More
