Great selfie backdrop

Stand closer to the road and get both the fountain and as much of the residence in your photo. Then actually go inside and tour the residence.

This is the statue and fountain in front of the Residenz. You see it as you approach the palace and from the square. It is a good landmark to meet by.

Okay, it's interesting. Is it over the top? Nah. For any TripAdvisor searcher (and searches), some will find the same results as "Viierrohrenbrunnen" (same attraction). Just in case anyone wants to pursue all the possible avenues. So, this is a very nice fountain statue at the entry to the "Residenz" aka "The Residenzeplatz" (for further TripAdvisor searches). Back to the... More

This fountain is one of the first things you see when you enter the Residence grounds. According to our guide, there was a statue to honor Prince Regent Luitpold who did not want any memorial.

In return the Prince Regent donated in 1895 the Kiliansbrunnen in front... More
