Unlike the Munich Residenz, which evolved over five hundred years and thus incorporates the styles of quite different periods, the Würzburg Residenz was built in its entirety, with short interruptions, almost within a single generation. The architects drew their inspiration from an area extending from Vienna to Paris and from Genoa and Venice to Amsterdam. The building embodies the attainments of Western architecture of its day, French château architecture, Viennese baroque and the religious and secular architecture of northern Italy and is a synthesis of the arts of astonishing universality.
