I received my 5th UNESCO site from Germany a few days ago! It has travelled a distance of 621 kms in days! It shows the city Würzburg including Würzburg Residence with the Court Gardens and Residence Square (on the card the building up in the middle and down in the middle).




This magnificent Baroque palace – one of the largest and most beautiful in Germany and surrounded by wonderful gardens – was created under the patronage of the prince-bishops Lothar Franz and Friedrich Carl von Schönborn. It was built and decorated in the 18th century by an international team of architects, painters (including Tiepolo), sculptors and stucco-workers, led by Balthasar Neumann.
