The lively university and congress city of Würzburg in Bavaria, gateway to the Romantic Road, has centuries of history to offer the Catholic pilgrim. The Prince-bishops' Palace, a UNESCO World Heritage site, has a sumptuous Baroque design by Balthasar Neumann. It also houses the world's largest painting by the Venetian Tiepolo. The Cathedral (Dom) St. Kilian is the fourth largest Romanesque church in Germany, and The Neumünster Church was built on the sacred gravesite of three Franconian martyrs. On the charming market square, you'll find the Late Gothic Chapel of St. Mary (Marienkapelle) with its rich ornamental sculptures, of which the statues of Adam and Eve and the "Beautiful Madonna" are especially noteworthy.
