NOTES: Built as the palace of the Prince-Bishops to the plans of Balthasar Neumann, though modified by Johann Lukas von Hildebrandt and Johann Maxmilian von Welsch. The fountain was unveiled in 1894 as a tribute by the city of Wurzburg and the whole of Franconia (the district in which Wurzburg sits) to Luitpold the Prince Regent of Bavaria (1821-1912), who was born in the palace.
