The princely Garden on the "Schütt", the old battery position for the East side of Fort Marienberg was early 16th century landscaped as a garden. The ornate terraces with beautiful balustrades and the two cascading fountains at the edges must date from the time of the Prince-Bishop Johann Philipp von Schönborn (1642-1673), also the Schönborn coat-of-arms on the balustrade of the views of the garden terrace stalls. It was 1937 reinstated and its still existing shape the garden got in 1700 under Johann Philipp von Greiffenclau. The 8-part Parterre with a fountain was then furnished with four allegorical and mythological figures (four seasons). Two of the destroyed original sculptures were replaced by replicas. Two garden pavilions from 1700 on the upper terraces. The southern Pavilion still has the rich late-Baroque stucco. Unique views of Würzburg and the Main Valley to Randersacker as well as the Nikolausberg with chapel.
