This UNESCO World Heritage Site was the home of prince-bishops for many years, having been built by Johann Philipp Franz von Schönborn to replace a previous palace that wasn’t deemed worthy enough. He used his own money to have a new palace built which would offer the same splendour as Versailles and Schönbrunn. It features the largest ceiling painting in the world, has a room where Napoleon slept during frequent visits and can be seen in the film The Three Musketeers.
As well as the beautifully decorated rooms, the Residence Palace is home to the Martin-von-Wagner Museum, which holds the University of Wurzburg’s collection of Egyptian antiques and art from between the 14th and 19th centuries.
