This building doesn't look much from the outside, and is near the Cathedral area. However, inside it has amazing paintings and carvings. We couldn't visit much of the building, but what we saw was very impressive - back to the 18th century. Well worth a visit if you are in town.

This beautiful complex was first constructed in 1602, and later expanded to its current state. It contains wonderful examples of marble and parquet flooring, paintings and 17th and 18th century furniture and tapestries. Well worth the visit.

It was a pleasant surprise to see that the Bamberg Neue Residenz had a really great art museum. I was not crowded, and the temperatures inside were comfortable. It is advisable to pay attention to the parking regulations, as I got a 20 euro ticket on a Sunday in front of the Cathedral. Having out of the region license plates... More

This is the area where the Bishop lived. It allows a visitor to experience a glimpse of daily life. Also, the Three Muskateers was filmed there. There is a large courtyard and some interesting architecture. This is not a destination stop but if you are visiting the cathedral, it is convenient.

When we arrived we were told the tour of the residence is in German only however we were welcome to tag along and read the placards. So we went through the rooms that had artwork while we waited. You cannot tour the residence rooms without the guide. What ended up happening is she first spoke in German to the larger... More

We took a tour of the beautifully restored room of the New Residenz and we impressed with the beauty of the place. The rooms are ornate and the ceiling frescos are amazing. It requires some walking but really worth the time and effort!

The Neue Residenz is located near the cathedral. It is kind of plain from the outside but the plaster work and paintings inside are something to see. The furniture and the rooms are beautiful. There are nice views of the city from the rose garden. It is worth a visit.

he best 7 Euro I spent in Munchen. This Lavish spectacle of structural and interior design is breathtaking in it's detail and extensiveness. I am pretty handy with tile and woodworking, but I feel totally inadequate when I see the workmanship and think of the time that must have been invested for all this beautiful decadence. Excellent way to spend... More

New residence for the bishop. set in a large courtyard area with cobblestones.. plenty of room to move around. Inside, there's lovely buildings with bright geraniums hanging from pots, brightening up the stone coloured facades

We came here and were assigned to a German tour, to see the residenz. They also had cards in English describing each room but the descriptions were minimal, just a few lines. We had such a great experience at wurzburg's residence the previous day, where they had guided English tours 5 times daily. We left here after the first floor,... More
