This is the fountain at the main entrance of the Residentz. In the middle of the fountain, there are some nice statues and carvings. A great place to take pictures of the Residentz.

As my wife and I had chosen to bypass a tour of the Residenz, this was the only thing, as well as the exterior that we could get a photograph of from the road. Pretty enough,

Stand closer to the road and get both the fountain and as much of the residence in your photo. Then actually go inside and tour the residence.

This is the statue and fountain in front of the Residenz. You see it as you approach the palace and from the square. It is a good landmark to meet by.

Okay, it's interesting. Is it over the top? Nah. For any TripAdvisor searcher (and searches), some will find the same results as "Viierrohrenbrunnen" (same attraction). Just in case anyone wants to pursue all the possible avenues. So, this is a very nice fountain statue at the entry to the "Residenz" aka "The Residenzeplatz" (for further TripAdvisor searches). Back to the... More

This fountain is one of the first things you see when you enter the Residence grounds. According to our guide, there was a statue to honor Prince Regent Luitpold who did not want any memorial.

The fountain is in front of the Rezidence on the big square. There are three very important personalities to see Mathias Grünewald Renaissance painter Walther von der Vogelweide, Poet in 12. century and Tilman Riemenschneider the big sculptor from Würzburg.
