Germany, facts and history in brief
Würtzburg is on the River Main in Bavaria, south-western Germany, a rich industrial city, located in the centre of the German wine country.
The city has many Baroque style old buildings.
One of the nicest example is the 'Franconian Residenz'.
Behind the Residenz is the Hofgarten a popular place in town.
In the centre of the old city is the Dom of Saint Killian and nearby is the Baroque style Neumünster.
The Marienberg Fortress on the other side of the beautiful River Main was another of the princes' home, now house the Main-Frankisches Museum, housing many sculptures and carvings.
The Käppele, another ornate Baroque church with magnificent views of Würtzburg from the top.
Würtzburg is surrounded by forests and vineyards.
Great effort went into to rebuild the city after the WWII to make it a charming city and make it a centre for art, nice architecture and famous wines.
There are many charming Baroque and Roccocco style buildings in and around the city centre.
Hui Chin and I run across Würtzburg on our way to Rothenburg and Dinkelsbühl, so we spent the day to check the place out.
Würtzburg is very nice and friendly.
