You can wander through the Imperial Hall with its stucco sculptures, colorful murals, and gold ornamentation. Although you must pay to enter the palace, you can roam the tranquil residence gardens free of charge. This site is on the UNESCO World Heritage list.

Würzburg Residence reviews
Custom-built in the early 18th century palace with 360-rooms (don't worry only 40 rooms open to public) and garden - are the main attractions of today's Wurzburg. Open daily 9 am-18 pm, cost 9 euros..... more »
We did not go inside the building but rather only visited the gardens which were very beautiful in summer with many roses and other flowers. Centrally located in Wurzburg city. Each person can decide.... more »
The residence was one fantastic afternoon of beautiful frescoes and a great guide that was very informative and entertaining. I thought that the gift shop was over priced but the clerk was very helpful. As a handicapped person i was very appreciative of the availability of the elevator, as i couldn't handle the stairs.
Stunning palace. Definitely suggested the guided tour to see some of its internal space. Really well organized and with very interesting explanation. Not allowed to take pictures inside the palace. After the tour, it's possible to visit the gardens of the palace. Amazing gardens with tons of flowers around. Very good place for taking some pictures.
