Inside several courts, while from the outside you can enjoy a beautiful view of the city, and the gardens of the fortress.
It's a beautiful place to walk about. Mußt be really lovely in summer. Beautiful view over Würzburg.
The fortress is interesting to visit, more like an afternoon walk. The walk starts with a hill climb but a nice one with city panorama view on the left. You can rest either on the banches along the staires or on the terrace at the fortress entrance with a beer. The fortress itself is an interesting building with nice details but not something sophisticated. Centre city to fortress visit and back ~2h.
