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.

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.

This statue, situated in front of the Wurzburg Palace, was to honor Prince Regent Luitpold, from Wurzburg and Franconia. The prince was born in 1821 in the Palace and this was done for his 70th birthday on June 4, 1894. He didn't want a statue...More
