When you go to the Residenz take a little extra time to look at the fountain. Also, don't miss the gardens which can be found behind the Residenz.

We joined a walking tour of the city and this huge fountain is in front of a vast palace. If you walk around to the left of the buildings through beautiful wrought iron gates you can wander around a lovely garden.

The statue, Franconia, with the fountain was a photo spot for visitors while waiting to enter the Residenz. It appeared that this statue was protecting the Residenz.

Quite a big fountain directly in front of the Residenz, it is a perfect spot for pictures/ rest/ meeting point if you ever get separated from your friends etc.

This fountain is direct in front of the entrance to the residence. It’s a good place to meet or take a break. The water in the fountain is quite dirty

The ceiling frescoes were the most beautiful I had ever seen. You get to visit many rooms and each is authentic to the period with gorgeous paintings and tapestries.

in the Residenz ground or facing the Frankoniabrunnen, at the right side just near the parking area, you can find a cafe and restaurant named B.Neumann.
