Pretty quaint palace with beautiful baroque and roccoco exterior and gardens. The interior is not very impressive as it was only a summer retreat for the prince bishop. The gardens are pretty and free to wander around. A tour inside costs 4.50 euro and is...More

This place is a short distance north of wurzburg, and can be done in half a day. Don't bother going inside the house, its very mediocre and you cannot wander at will. You will pay and then be forced to join a tour in German,...More

Went here after the Würzburg Residence. Unfortunately they have no English tours and you are not allowed to explore the house on your own. Gardens are pretty but not worth a special trip

My partner and I visited the Schloss at Veitshochheim on the same day as we visited the Residenz in Wurzburg. We had both found the big palace a bit much and the guided tour there uninspiring. Well, what a contrast when we got to Veitshochheim!...More

Baroque-style castle with a party room with scenes of hunting very well preserved, dating from 1600. The beautiful garden and the open-air theater add a touch of class to this building. There are guided tours from hour to hour and the cost is 3.5 euros...More

This was the first stop on my 2018 visit to Wuerzburg. The palace itself is in wonderful condition, but I missed getting a tour of the interior with a guide by 2 hours, so I had to content myself with walking around the exterior and...More

The 45 minute boat ride from Wurzberg passes some interesting sites (and some industrial ones). We did not go into the Schloss, but spent a pleasant and interesting time wandering through the gardens (no charge) before going back to a bar near the landing stage...More

The Schloss itself is fairly small and intimate but perfectly proportioned and maintained. It is however the gardens (free of charge) which are the main attraction with their decorative lake, charming statuary and small private arbours (am I being disrespectful in imagining the Prince Bishops...More

the palace was well preserved and had beautiful artworks. The ceiling fresco was amazing as was the baroque designs. No photos allowed inside, but the gardens are beautiful and a great photo setting.

I was in Wurzburg on business and I had some local co-workers tell me that this was a must see. Were they ever right! I walked into the gardens and was mesmerized. I was there on a Sunday and it was so quiet and peaceful....More

You will find the beginnings of the castle in the ground floor. Between 1680 until 1682 they built a hall with five arcades. This hall served as a protection place behind the hunting. Later followed an extension of two window axes and the representative second...More
