  • In addition to the residence the next featured attraction. The climb is worth. About the garden of the "old" State garden show of less burdensome because there is much to see. The Outlook is famos and impressive building with its fortress walls.

  • Repair. Look outside only after a hearty lunch. In General, this is the route back and forth without much emotion. Beautiful park. From overlooking the city. Everything.

  • Imposing medieval building, the fortress houses a Museum and a gift shop, and a stylish café. The courtyard is open for visitation, but the Museum is paid. If you're staying in Wurzburg, is a compelling attraction.

  • We toured the grounds and part of the buildings on our own. Arrived by the city bus and then walked back to hotel on the other side of the river. Our group (two 50s and three early 20s) had a great afternoon at the castle complex. Enjoyed the restaurant too for a snack and liquid hydration. Recommended.
  • Beautiful little area with lots of visual touristy delights. They have an amazing bird's eye view of the town once you go into the terrace area. There's also a beautiful garden.
  • Great experience! Some construction going on so weren't able to see it all, but can't hold that against them
  • Great views and worth walk up. Walk is only 10 minutes from alte bridge. Under construction at top so look for tiny walkway to access the Queens Garden for the best view, and take a wine.
  • Great views f the city. Self guided tour with little English. It is a nice walk up
