Residenz

Recommended
In 1595, the former 11C bishop's palace was replaced by this sumptuous building, on the initiative of Wolf Dietrich. The northwest wing only dates from the late 18C. A young Mozart played numerous concerts before the court of the prince-archbishop, here in the Conference Hall. An antechamber overlooks the interior of the Franciscan church. Emperor Franz Joseph received Napoleon III here, then Wilhelm I.
