This was a highlight so far of our holiday. No photos inside. Sad history of destruction during WWII and has been rebuilt since. Truly amazing architecture and engineering. The gardens spectacular

The paintings are majestic. Everything is well preserved. There was done a lot of restauration work after the second World War. Don't go in Bavaria without visiting this!

It was a bit late, so we did not go for the visit. I think it might be interesting, if you have the patience to go in all those rooms... The architecture is impressive.

Do not forget to visit the Residenz Palace, with a guided tour. Nice information regarding the history of Wurzburg region, fundamental to understand Germany evolution.

Make sure you have enough time for this amazing stop. There is so much to see here, you wouldn't want to miss the art built into the ceilings and walls or the colors exploding from room to room. There is a minimum of 1.5 hours...More
