The Hofkirche in Wuerzburg is without doubt one of the most beautiful churches in Germany ! It was constructed after the plans of Balthasar Neumann and the interior was built by Lucas von Hildebrandt with paintings by Giovanni Nattista Tiepolo, frescos by Rudolf Byss and the great pulpit by Materno Bossi. Hofkirche was destroyed in WW II but completly restored already shortly afterwards.
You can enter this great church freely and without restrictions dring the day, photography is no problem !
