We recently stayed in Wurzburg for three days, and spent much of the last day here. We took the boat (that's another review), but if you're energetic, you could even rent bikes and ride there on a beautiful bike trail. The palace itself is only open for scheduled, guided tours, which are in German only. Our son tried that out,... More

We took a boat cruise from Wurzburg as it was a rainy day and came across Veitshochheim Schloss completely by accident. We did not go inside the Schloss but wandered amongst the gardens. Even in the rain they were very impressive. Some of the trees were massive and the hedges were immaculately manicured. The boat ride was relaxing but as... More

This place is a short distance north of wurzburg, and can be done in half a day. Don't bother going inside the house, its very mediocre and you cannot wander at will. You will pay and then be forced to join a tour in German, even if you can't understand a word. Complete waste of time. The gardens are good... More

If you haven't seen enough palaces and castles, you can take a boat to Veitshöchheim and go for a leisurely walk in the park of the palace - the palace itself cannot be visited

Pretty quaint palace with beautiful baroque and roccoco exterior and gardens. The interior is not very impressive as it was only a summer retreat for the prince bishop. The gardens are pretty and free to wander around. A tour inside costs 4.50 euro and is in german only but the tour guide gave me a brief translation in english for... More

The house is pretty, as are the gardens, but the boat ride there along the river is rather uninteresting. I don't think i'd recommend others to spend their afternoon that way.

From Wurzburg I took a boat ride to Veitshochheim to see the Schloss and had a great personal tour by one of the curators as there weren't many people there that day. It is fascinating baroque era structure with a huge garden as part of the complex. Well worth the visit and the boat ride from and back to Wurzburg... More

really impressive gardens and the audio guide is excellent in the information it provides. It could however do with a cafe attached. However there are excellent choices in the nearby village/town.

The best way to begin the trip to Veitshochheim Schloss is getting there by ferry-boat, which you can take in the town centre of Würzburg, near the Alte Mainbrücke. It takes more or less an hour to get to Veitshochheim, a quite small pictoresque village. I just visited the Rokokogarden and I loved it! There are so many colours and... More

The grounds are worth walking around or having a picnic in. It's not very crowded so you can find a little area to enjoy the beauty.
