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.

In comparison to the Festung & the Residenz, this is relatively plain but still amazing that so much expense could be made for the comfort of the Prince-Bishops. Interesting rococo garden also.

The boat trip alone is pur bliss, so peaceful and relaxing. It takes about 45 minutes to get to Veitshöcheim with the boat and the boats leave every hour. The gardens at this place are amazing and the herb garden is also very interesting! Perfect for an easy, comfortable excursion offering so many benches to sit and just enjoy the... More
