The Unique Würzburg Flair
    Why is Würzburg so popular? Many people come
    visit time and time again, not because of the location
    alongside the Main River and the ease of getting here.
    No, it has everything to do with the unique atmos-
    phere that simply makes you feel good. It’s a special
    mix of culture and ambiance, of world heritage and
    wine festivals, of modern and classical music, of
    avant-garde and age-old traditions, of sciences and
    party atmosphere that makes this town so popular.
    The stunning historical architecture provides the
    perfect setting for everything Würzburg has to offer.
    There are many hotels and restaurants that are
    looking forward to your visit. – Enjoy the Franconian
    wine, a glass of Franconian sparkling wine and
     other culinary treats from the region.

The Residenz Palace –
A UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site
Balthasar Neumann, Europe’s greatest architect of the Baroque
era, built the Residence Palace. This former home of the prince
bishops of Würzburg is nicknamed “the castle above all castles.”
The grand staircase of the Residence Palace is deemed the most
beautiful staircase in the world. Other renowned artists whose
names are inextricably linked to this lovely city on the Main river
are Tilman Riemenschneider and Giovanni Battista Tiepolo.

Almost Like Hollywood but Real:
The Towers of Würzburg
Würzburg is not a fake movie backdrop but a real, vibrant city.
The view from the Fortress Marienberg across the many towers
rising above the city – the cathedral, the Marienkapelle, the
town hall, and the Käppele – is breathtaking and unforgettable.

The Museums: Visit, Experience, and Learn
At the Museum für Franken, you find a large collection of works
by Tilman Riemenschneider. The Museum am Dom offers a
unique collection of modern and contemporary art. The award-
winning Museum im Kulturspeicher offers Concrete Art in a
truly extraordinary setting. If you are interested in items from
the antiquity, then visit the Martin von Wagner Museum. There
is something here for any interest!

Fascinating Tradition: Franconian Wine,
the Bocksbeutel and Typical Restaurants
Our recommendation: Quaint restaurants and traditional wine
taverns offering local fare. Of course, you can also opt for inter-
national cuisine at five star restaurants. And don’t forget that
this is one of the best wine-growing areas in Germany. So don’t
miss the opportunity to sample a local wine from a Bocksbeutel
bottle. This should be a mandatory part of any visit…
For an up-close experience of the Franconian joie de vivre,
visit one of the many local wine festivals, tour a wine cellar or
participate in a wine tasting.

       With all the choices available, it might be
       difficult to make a decision. Maybe it’s
       the world-renowned Riemenschneider
       collection at the Museum für Franken the
       collection of Concrete Art at the Kultur-
       speicher. Or maybe you prefer the contrast
       of “old” and “new” art in the Museum am
       Dom. Whatever you are interested in, you
       will, however, find a match.
