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.

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. So the Franonia Fountain was sculpted instead and is suppose...More
