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.

There is nothing incredible about this. If you have seen statue or fountains before, you are not going to be amazed. Have a look at it as you walk by, but don't go out of your way for this!

The fountain at least partially fills up the large space in front of the Residence. It's a good photo op and very pretty. One of the main sights of Wurzburg, inscribed on the UNESCO WHS list along with the Residence.

This fountain is the only thing in the vast gardenless grounds in front of the large opulent former Residence of the Prince Bishops. The statue of Franconia has armour and a ducal headgear. Turning around you see the towers of the cathedral in the old...More

This fountain is not spectacular or anything special really, but where it is situated is a good meeting point when visiting the Residentz. It is also the place where most people took out their cameras, iPhones and iPads to take memory photos. I did too!

This is obviously one of the must see attractions of Wurzburg, right in front of the Residenz. Judging by the number of tourists one of the most photographed landmarks of the city.

This is the fountain at the main entrance of the Residentz. In the middle of the fountain, there are some nice statues and carvings. A great place to take pictures of the Residentz.

Great picture site. The fountain and statue are interesting and make a good picture. The location is in from of the Residenz which is worth going into.

As my wife and I had chosen to bypass a tour of the Residenz, this was the only thing, as well as the exterior that we could get a photograph of from the road. Pretty enough,
