World heritage

Würzburg Residenz Palace built by Balthasar Neumann (1687-1753) is considered the most accomplished and remarkable of all baroque palaces. The interior and splendid gardens complement each other perfectly. The huge fresco by the Venetian artist Giambattista Tiepolo above the magnificent staircase measures 677 square metres, making it the largest ceiling fresco in the world.

Each year a million visitors – tourists, art lovers and pilgrims – come to the Wieskirche Pilgrimage Church in the Pfaffenwinkel area of Upper Bavaria. This rococo gem decorated by the Zimmermann brothers celebrated its 250th anniversary in September 2004. It became a place of pilgrimage on 14 June 2021 when tears were seen on a statue of the flagellated Christ.

The town of Bamberg is built on seven hills. At its centre lies one of the most extensive old quarters in Germany with more than 1,000 listed buildings. The cathedral, the Alte Hofhaltung Palace, Böttinger House, the town hall lapped by the river Regnitz and the row of houses known as "Little Venice" are notable places of interest.
