The Staatlicher Hofkeller continues on a tradition which can be traced back as far as 1128. Beneath the baroque building of the Residence Palace are the expansive tunnels and cellars of the wine cellar of the former prince bishops. Experience and enjoy the wines in one of the most beautiful wine cellars in the world.

The former imperial cellar of the prince-bishops of Würzburg is located in the basement of the Residence Palace. The cellar is very large and its hallways are intertwined and maze-like. In 1719, the prince-bishop Johann Philipp Franz awarded the contract to build a new royal residence to Balthasar Neumann, the architect from Eger. The order included the construction of an “excellent” wine cellar.
