Residenz.jpg

Welcome to the Würzburg Residenz - a true jewel of European architecture and a must for anyone interested in history, art and culture. The Residenz, built between 1720 and 1744 according to the plans of the famous architect Balthasar Neumann, has since been regarded as one of the most important palaces in Europe and is a prime example of Baroque-style building. Step inside and let yourself be transported into a world of opulence and splendour. Admire the world-famous frescoes by the Venetian artist G.B. Tiepolo in the imposing staircase and imperial hall. Discover the fascinating stories behind the individual rooms and works of art. Learn more about the role of the castle as the seat of the Würzburg prince-bishops and its importance for the political and cultural landscape of the region.

 

 

 

 

 

And if that's not enough to pique your interest, the Residenz has recently added two new attractions. Visit the vestibule under the grand staircase and marvel at two restored life-size balustrade figures that were stored when the palace was rebuilt after the war. The exact replicas stand proudly at the ends of the middle balustrade of the residence - a female figure with a palm branch and a male figure with a pyramid.

Also discover the new documentation room that highlights the rebuilding of the Residence after the Second World War. Learn more about the challenges and successes of rebuilding this important cultural monument and gain a deeper understanding of the palace's enduring legacy.
