Würzburg Residence with the Court Gardens and Residence Square

Würzburg Residenz Palace is considered the most accomplished and remarkable of all baroque palaces. Centred around a spectacular baroque residence of enormous proportions, it is a synthesis of nature, architecture, painting and stucco ornamentation. Built between 1740 and 1770, it is one of the most spectacular royal palaces in Europe. The magnificent gardens were laid between 1765 and 1780. Although a large number of artists were involved in its design, Würzburg Residenz Palace is essentially the creation of three men - prince-bishop Philipp Franz of Schönborn, renowned architect Balthasar Neumann and the Venetian painter Giovanni Battista Tiepolo. Other well-known highlights are the staircase and ceiling paintings as well as the imperial hall with its frescos and wall paintings. The mirrored hall meanwhile, is one of the finest room installations of the rococo period.
