One masterpiece, two geniuses: Neumann and Tiepolo in Würzburg

He ranks among the leading architects of the baroque and rococo periods and is said to have designed around 100 buildings. Würzburg Residenz Palace is his most famous work. The huge self-supporting vaulted ceiling was painted by the Venetian artist Giovanni Battista Tiepolo.

Veitshöchheim Palace & rococo garden

Situated only a few miles down the river Main from Würzburg is another late baroque gem. The hedge-lined pathways constantly reveal fresh glimpses of hedged compartments, arbours, pavilions, circular flowerbeds and the Parnasse figures in the Great Lake – one of the garden's highlights. Around 300 sculptures by Würzburg's court sculptors adorn the garden.
