Schloss Veitshöchheim, Wurzburg

Marvel at refined Baroque facades and tour elegant period rooms at Schloss Veitshöchheim, a stately mansion on the right bank of the Main River. Completed in 1682, this summer palace of the prince-bishops of Wurzburg was enlarged in 1753 by the famous German military architect Balthasar Neumann. The elaborate interior with lacquered wooden floors will take you back to post-Napoleonic Europe. Take a stroll in the Rococo garden with many ponds and waterworks, and over 200 sandstone sculptures of deities, animals, and allegorical figures.

  • Went here after the Würzburg Residence. Unfortunately they have no English tours and you are not allowed to explore the house on your own. Gardens are pretty but not worth a special trip  more »

  • The gardens are amazing as well as very large. One of the best features is the avenues through the trees.
  • Nice old historical building and place
  • Very beautiful castle in a calm setting. Cute small city.
  • Magnificent Rokoko palace and gardens for the upper echelons of the church to have their lusty getaways, courtesy of the blessed tithe. Nowadays is a perfect example of eco-friendly responsible gardening
  • It is amazing there how you can go to the gardens and look at ponds and statue's 😍you can also have a picnic there or draw amazing things but I have to say it was beautiful
