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.

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!

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.
