The former Residence of the Prince Bishops in Würzburg is the most beautiful Baroque castle in southern Germany. Its perfect architectural harmony is fascinating; most of all the magnificent façade of yellowish sandstone, the number of splendid state rooms at the garden front, the unique staircase with the largest ceiling fresco in the world and the fantastic Imperial Hall, the heart of the complex.
