Photographer's Note

Hofgartentor - the south gate to the garden of the Residence, Wurzburg. The gate was the work of Johann Georg Oegg and his son, Georg. The background shows the towers of the cathedral and town hall.

The garden was designed predominantly in the English style by Johann Prokop Mayer in 1770. Mayer set out garden sections which either lay parallel, cut across one another, or were angled in strict geometrical design but towards the southwest in the English style. The garden perfectly complemented and enhanced the the unique architecture of the Residence designed by Balthasar Neumann.

Garden of The Residence:

East Garden I.

East Garden II with the eastern facade of the Residence.

Shot in the late afternoon.
