Anyone planning a city trip to Würzburg must take the time to visit its best-known landmark, the Würzburger Residenz. In 1981, the castle became the third German building to be designated a UNESCO World Heritage site. Designed by Balthasar Neumann, this castle - regarded as one of Europe’s most significant - was built between 1720 and 1744. Countless famous artists, from Antonio Bossi to Giovanni Battista Tiepolo, worked on the design of the ceilings and interiors. Most of the castle survived the Second World War intact. Today, 42 of the 340 rooms are on display. The ornately decorated Hofkirche and the Rococo are also open for viewing.
