  • 简单注意事项:1.维尔茨堡宫是二战后重建的.2.里面不允许拍照,参观时会有人领你参观,她会用德语讲解,因为有些屋子需要有钥匙才可以进,3.参观前需要存包,4.没有中文讲解文,有英语导览册5欧。5.后边的花园免费参观,不过冬天没什么可参观。6.全程大概1.5小时。 
  • We had an ausgesproche good and informative tour of the residence. This enables many interesting things about this baroque palace were communicated to us. Also for children / young people, which was very well prepared. The advantage of guided tours to the audio guide: you can ask questions.

  • The residence in Würzburg, built by Balthasar Neumann, is by Tiepolo, magnificently equipped rooms, and above all a beautiful courtyard garden with different levels, where you can relax excellently once one of the most beautiful baroque buildings in Europe, with a huge staircase and paintings! Also for teenagers an interesting tour!

  • 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.
