You will feel welcome in our old bishops's town, that is just as pleasant, inviting and lively as we Würzburgers ourselves. I am still impressed when I catch sight of the silhouette of the town: set between green vine covered hills, one can spot many towers and baroque buildings of this city on the Main river. The best known symbol of Würzburg, the mighty fort on the Marienberg with the Mainfränkische Museum, is fascinating not only to culture freaks. A stroll through the pedestrian zone leads you past the gothic Marienkapelle, the Salischen Dom, the Stift Haug and the baroque Neumüster.
Würzburg is a city of superlatives. The Fürstbischöfliche Residenz is the grandest baroque castle in Germany, and, as if that were not enough, the ceiling fresco is not only internationally famous, but also the largest of it's kind world-wide. The yearly Mozart Festival is held in the Kaisersaal and Hofgarten of the Residenz. Under the Residenz there is an architecturally unique vaulted cellar. In this grand Hofkeller, Frankenweine, beloved by Goethe, are stored.
Wine experts and those who would like to become such will enjoy being here. Our wine festivals, from April until October, are lovely and lively. Our "Heckenwirtschaften" are especially interesting to see: Small wine growers who open their doors only for a few weeks in September and October. The winemakers clear out their living rooms and cellars and sell Federweißen to the public.
You can order a traditional "Schoppen" of Frankenwein in the Weinhaus Stachel, the oldest winehouse and restaurant in Würzburg. Another of the most lovely wine towns is Sommerhausen and definitely worth a trip. In this wealthy artist town there are champagne and winemakers and the smallest theater in Germany, the Torturntheater.
