(4.6/5 based on 1,600+ reviews on the web)
See the world's largest ceiling fresco at Würzburg Residence, the majestic residence of the prince-bishops of Würzburg. Constructed in the early 18th century, the palace combines aspects of French chateau and Viennese Baroque architecture. The fresco is above the palace's grand royal staircase. You can wander through the Imperial Hall with its stucco sculptures, colorful murals, and gold ornamentation. Although you must pay to enter the palace, you can roam the tranquil residence gardens free of charge. This site is on the UNESCO World Heritage list.

  • 維爾茨堡官邸是一座巴洛克建築,座落在德國維爾茨堡市中心,維爾茨堡官邸為侯爵主教住處,這個官邸呈現了南德巴洛克風情,也是歐洲後期巴洛克具代表性的官邸建築。它於1981年被聯合國教科文組織列為世界文化遺產 
  • Stunning - overwhelming grandeur, mostly escaped damage in the war. PS Do not forget to visit the chapel 
  • 維爾茨堡是我們參加旅行團的景點,冬天裡的維爾茨堡宮廷格外美麗,德國在1950年有26個大小城鎮加入一個旅遊觀光聯盟,將各個小鎮和中世紀風格城堡串聯成一條沿著陶伯河的旅遊線路,取名為浪漫的羅曼蒂克大道,維爾茨堡剛好是這條羅曼蒂克大道的起點,在1981年被UNESCO納入世界文化遺產,這裡可以看到中世紀的巴洛克Barogue宮廷風格,巴洛克式是17世紀歐洲流行的一種藝術風格,講究宏偉、炫麗及對稱,我們...  more »

  • Quite an impressive experience to see the palace and how the elite lived centuries ago. Quite opulent in the details and paintings. There are gardens behind the palace as well that are a sight to behold when in bloom among the well maintained grounds.
  • Beautiful place. The garden behind the residence is very nice. Great place to spend during the mid day
  • Another great residence in Germany. This one was mostly rebuilt after WWII, but the grand staircase with its vaulted ceiling survived. It features the largest fresco in the world, painted by Giovanni Tiepolo.
  • Amazing replica of Versailles. Wish they allowed photos inside. Spectacular!
  • Incredible from the inside and out. Be sure to find the ceiling fresco painted by Tiepolo, which is worth the trip alone.
