After Rothenburg, the tour bus took us to tour the Residenz Palace in Wurzburg, southern Germany, which was used as the residence of the Prince-Bishops until the early 18th century.
The palace is so impressive, so grand and so long.
It has a gorgeous Franconian Fountain in front where John and I posed for a photo.
We were not allowed to take pictures inside the building so I copied this from Wikepedia. It is the grand staircase which is part of the formal reception room. A Venetian painter Giovanni Battista Tiepolo decorated the vault with a fresco, showing paintings of the four continents: Europe, America, Asia and Africa in 1750-1753. The painting on the vault and all the baroque intricate work are so stunning, this picture does not do them any justice at all.
Sorry, I could not show you any other interior pictures. As I said earlier, we were not allowed to take pictures inside, which is too bad because the interior is stunning.
Thanks for stopping by. I appreciate your comments.
Thanks also to the hostesses. I am linking with
