Well worth a couple hours when visiting the city of Wuerzburg. There is parking available on site. Tours available throughout the day, including English at 3pm. Don't miss the grounds and the small but very ornate Hofkirche at this location.

Our cruise tour only included a visit to the gardens. These are beautifully maintained and, with a bit of stair climbing, present a wonderful view of the palace facade.

This residence is mostly a combination of several palaces and architectural styles wrapped into one. The stunning Hermitage-style staircase and Vatican-like ceiling frescos along with rooms decorated like many other opulent palaces around the world were a sight to see. Okay, it has decorated mirrors...More
