Staatlicher Hofkeller – Würzburg
The former imperial cellar of the prince-bishops of Würzburg is located in the basement of the Residence Palace. The cellar is very large and its hallways are intertwined and maze-like. In 1719, the prince-bishop Johann Philipp Franz awarded the contract to build a new royal residence to Balthasar Neumann, the architect from Eger. The order included the construction of an “excellent” wine cellar.
The cellar is one of the most beautiful wine cellars in the whole world. It can be experienced during a tour through the beautifully illuminated halls and hallways. The imposing wooden barrels in the “Stückfasskeller” are mesmerizing. Thousands of visitors from all over the world come to this truly unique cellar each year for tours, wine tasting, and cultural events.
The wine tasting begins with a welcome drink and an informative cellar tour. Then enjoy six different wines in the candlelight wine cellar. Mineral water and bread are served as well.
