The Wurzburg Residence is a Baroque building located in the old part of the German city of Wurzburg (Wurzburg); It began in 1719 and was completed in 1780.

The Wurzburg Residence was completed in 1780 by Balthasar Neumann and Maximilian von Welsch of Mainz and Giovanni Tiepolo, among many other artists who influenced its impressive finishes.
The residence's imperial-style staircase was designed by Balthasar Neumann. This stairwell leads to a vault measuring 18 by 30 square meters, adorned with frescoes nearly 600 square meters in size by the Venetian Giovanni Battista Tiepolo.
The resistance of the vault aroused many doubts in his time and Balthasar Neumann received numerous criticisms, since he did not have columns to support it. However, to dispel the incredulous opinions of the skeptics, Neumann suggested that cannon shots be fired at the vault to test its strength.
The greatest designer of this episcopal palace died on August 19, 1753, long before it was completed.
Another feature of the Wurzburg Residence is the large octagonal central hall probably suggested by the architect Maximilian von Welsch of Mainz and decorated with works by the rococo artist Tiepolo, who had the help of his sons Dominicus and Titus.

Since 1981 it has been part of the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites thanks to being considered "one of the most brilliant royal courts in Europe, unique for its originality and ambitious construction program
