Information for visitors

Information / Coronavirus

Due to the current regulation on the protection against COVID-19, all sights of the Bavarian Palace Department are closed at the moment. The regulation currently applies until 7 March 2021.

Current information / Entrances to the Court Garden

Please use the gates at the Hofkirche and Rennweg for your visit to the Court Garden. Currently, construction work is underway to renovate the paths in the English part of the W├╝rzburg Cout Garden. The garden gates on Ottostra├če and on the Balthasar-Neumann-Promenade must therefore remain closed until further notice. The already completed areas of the English part will remain accessible to visitors.

We ask for your understanding.
