  The new residence of the bishop
by globetrott

The new residence of the bishop dates back to the year 1712 and is connected with the old residence and the cathedral.
Look at the great baroque facade - inside of that building you may see the treasury of the bishop in the "Domschatz- und Diözesanmuseum". You cannot enter that museum on Residenzplatz ( the square seen on my picture), BUT the entrance is inside the cathedral.

Address: Residenzplatz
Directions: Residenzplatz and the new palace of the bishop is just behind the cathedral of St.Stephen

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
