The statue, Franconia, with the fountain was a photo spot for visitors while waiting to enter the Residenz. It appeared that this statue was protecting the Residenz.

This fountain is direct in front of the entrance to the residence. It’s a good place to meet or take a break. The water in the fountain is quite dirty

The ceiling frescoes were the most beautiful I had ever seen. You get to visit many rooms and each is authentic to the period with gorgeous paintings and tapestries.

This is not what would be called an "outstanding attraction," but is somewhat unavoidable on the way to the Residenz palace, as it stands prominently in front of the entrance. I somehow didn't bother with a picture.

in the Residenz ground or facing the Frankoniabrunnen, at the right side just near the parking area, you can find a cafe and restaurant named B.Neumann.
