Life in Würzburg
Würzburg, the pearl at the river Main
Würzburg is a picturesque city in the region of lower Franconia (Franken) in Bavaria and is situated on the River Main. Nearly completely destroyed during the last days of World War II, rebuilding activities transformed Würzburg into a vibrant, modern city that has retained its historical charm. With the Residence Palace, the Fortress Marienberg, and the cathedral of St. Kilian, Würzburg offers stunning architectural landmarks among many other sights.
The city and region is inextricably linked to Franconian wine culture and is home to a number of famous vineyards and wineries in Germany. Many “Weinstuben” in the historic center provide a rustic atmosphere where local specialties can be enjoyed. One of the most popular after-work activities is to savour a glass of white wine on the Old Main Bridge “Alte Mainbrücke” among colleagues and friends.
The vineyards around Würzburg invite you to take a stroll and enjoy the scenery.

"Kein anderer Wein will mir schmecken, und ich bin verdrießlich, wenn mir mein gewohnter Lieblingstrank abgeht."
