The Gardens Are Very Nice!

The gardens where in full bloom in July and very lovely. If you go up the steps and look back at the schloss you will get some awesome picture

The history here is wonderful and the town is quaint if you're in Wuerzburg for an extended visit. It's near the river with plenty of food options and history and of course wine!

perfect to visit on Sunday afternoon especially in summer. Statues, fountains as well as garden corridors. Just sit down in the sunshine and have a talk with several friends! Palace itself also deserve to have a glance.

We took the ferry downstream from Wurzburg to Veitshocheim and had an enjoyable afternoon in the town and of course visiting the Schloss. Extensive gardens really help to make this palace a photographers dream. The day we were there the palace itself was closed but the gardens alone made the visit worthwhile.

we did not visit the building but spent about 90 minutes wandering the gardens, one of the more interesting gardens I have seen in Germany, well worth the visit

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
