We came upon this residenz as we were wandering around Bamberg and it is so big and picturesque. It is situated in a beautiful square with many other scenic buildings, including Bamberg's Cathedral Dom. The entire surrounding area is very beautiful and well worth seeing.

You can visit some rooms where are paintings displayed, and they also give a tour with guide to the king's apartments, check if you can take the English one. The German is rather complicate to understand even for Germans, because of the local dialect.

We went to see this and it was ok. Probably we have seen so many buildings and on so many tours that this one was not up to our expectations. In saying that, maybe we have been spoilt with other tours. Enjoyable and been there...More

What a lovely building. Excellent, well planned exhibition of marvellous manuscripts too. And a super restaurant in the rose garden under the arch. Staff of the library were very helpful. Recommended.

The Rose Garden (which is within the Neue Residenz) is the terrace with the hundreds of rose bushes. The Residenz was built in the 17th Century in the Baroque style. Personally, I find the Baroque one of the very least interesting architectural styles and the...More

Tours are only in German but if you are not a German speaker don't let this put you off. This is spectacular building particularly the King's Salon but there is plenty more to see on your tour.

Hello. There is no english only tour. As you enter each wing of the building there are cards in english you can read as you move from room to room. Our tour guide spoke english and was able to answer any questions we had.
