Gateway to the Romantic Road

Würzburg Marienberg Citadel, copyright CTW
Würzburg is an ancient episcopal seat and a vibrant university town with a baroque, distinctly southern feel. It is in an idyllic setting surrounded by vineyards and is defined by its architectural splendours that reflect a range of epochs. Art, culture and Franconian wine are a way of life in Würzburg – they impart a Mediterranean joie de vivre.

Places of interest

Würzburg Prince bishops' Residenz Palace, copyright Andreas Hub
Würzburg's main places of interest are the magnificent prince bishops' Residenz Palace, an impressive example of Mediterranean baroque architecture, and the mighty Marienberg Citadel. The works of famous artists such as Tilman Riemenschneider, Balthasar Neumann and Giovanni Battista Tiepolo can be seen everywhere, and the tomb of medieval minnesinger, Walther von der Vogelweide, is also here. A glass of delicious Franconian wine is just the thing after a tour of the old town.
