The WÃ¼rzburg Residence is a palace in WÃ¼rzburg, southern Germany. Balthasar Neumann, architect of the court of the Bishop of WÃ¼rzburg, was the main architect of the Residenz. The palace was commissioned by the Prince-Bishop of WÃ¼rzburg Johann Philipp Franz von SchÃ¶nborn and his brother Friedrich Carl von SchÃ¶nborn in 1720, and completed in 1744. The Venetian painter Giovanni Battista Tiepolo, assisted by his son, Domenico, painted the frescoes in the building.
