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.

It is the Statue in front of the Residenz with a big water fountain. The Statue is looking forward or facing to the Cathedral. It is a perfect place to sit and relax a bit from a long walk. The visit is completed with a...More

Statue representing Franconia. A figure with a laurel wreath and flag. Below are figures of Walther von der Vogelweide, the poet, Tilman Riemenschneider, the sculptor and woodcarver, and Matthias Grünewald, painter. Beautiful. Nice spot to take a moment. While we visited, a young person was...More

Quite a big fountain directly in front of the Residenz, it is a perfect spot for pictures/ rest/ meeting point if you ever get separated from your friends etc.

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.

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.

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.
