Amazing palace of the prince-bishops. World Heritage site. The rooms are spectacular and one-of-a-kind. The chapel is incredibly beautiful. Only the Cappella Sansevero in Naples exceeds this one in beauty. Take the english guided tour if you can as there are certain rooms - mirror...More

The Residennz of Würzburg was buid by the architect Balthasar Neumann and financed by the archbishop. Napoleaon said it is the most beautiful "priest house" of Europe - with beatuiful English garden! Entry to the Residenz itself is not cheap.

Big old fashioned castle with amazing architecture inside as well as outside. I recommend a guided tour and a walk through the park behind the building. In the summertime there is a one week outdoor wine festival inside the park right hand side.
