Fortress Marienberg 4.0 stars
Castle, Fortification, Palace - #1 of 14
Jutting up from the hillside overlooking the River Main lies the Fortress Marienerg (aka 'Festung Marienberg' if you want to sound like a local - or 'Wirceberc' if you want to sound medieval!). I take a trip up to here each year near ... [more ]
Würzburg Residence 4.0 stars
Castle, Fortification, Palace - #2 of 14
The Würzburg Residence is where Würzburg's building craze began in the 18th century. Put simply, the Residence was created to provide the prince-bishop with a home that he felt more comfortable in! The architect he commisioned of course, was the ... [more ]
Alte Mainbruecke 3.0 stars
Bridge - #3 of 14
The German "Alte Mainbrücke" (pronounced pretty much as "mine-brueck-eh") is the old main bridge that leads into the city of Würzburg. I however like to think that it is named as such because of the river on which it stands (River Main). Whilst ... [more ]
Staatsgalerie im Nordflügel in der Residenz Würzburg 4.0 stars
Museum, Gallery, Exhibition - #4 of 14
As most important cities, Wurzburg also has a beautiful palace which used to be home of two Prince-Bishops. The Palace is also very old, about 300 years old and also very beautiful. There are many nice things you can see inside the Palace like ... [more ]
Africa Festival 3.0 stars
Entertainment, Festival, Amusement Park - #5 of 14
I write this review about the Africa Festival with a heavy heart. I see so well the bigger picture that this festival brings to the city - an amazing cultural integration - but from a visitors perspective I was truly disappointed and felt that I ... [more ]
Hofkirche 4.0 stars
Church, Cathedral, Chapel - #6 of 14
The Hofkirche is the chapel attached to Würzburg’s Residenz and is probably the most beautiful church in town, in my opinion. The late baroque/rococo architecture is amazing inside and is quite similar in style to Munich’s Asamkirche, which is my ... [more ]
Saint Burkard's Parish 4.0 stars
Church, Cathedral, Chapel - #7 of 14
Between the steep slope down from the Fortress Marienberg and the bank of the River Main is what is known as the "Main Quarter" in Wuerzburg, which is the old part of the city. The river is actually a bit of a line between the new, modern parts ... [more ]
Mainfränkisches Museum 3.0 stars
Museum, Gallery, Exhibition - #8 of 14
The Main-fränkishes Museum traces the city of Würzburg’s history mostly through its very random art. By very random I mean it is partly church art, partly bishops clothing, partly paintings, partly sculptures. The primary focus seems to be on the ... [more ]
Augustinerkirche 3.0 stars
Church, Cathedral, Chapel - #9 of 14
The Augustinerkirche of Würzburg is, although not that tremendously big, one of the highlights of the churches of the area. It was originally a 13th century Dominican chapel. Not much remains of the previous building, although the choir area was ... [more ]
Käppele 3.0 stars
Church, Cathedral, Chapel - #10 of 14
The Käppele (Chapel) in Würzburg is not usually one of the first sites that those with limited time in Würzburg get to see. Usually they head straight to the Alte Mainbrücke or Festung Marienburg. Since I have been lucky enough to spend a lot of ... [more ]
Fürstenbaumuseum 3.0 stars
Museum, Gallery, Exhibition - #11 of 14
The Fürstenbaumuseum (Princes’ Quarters Museum) is the second museum of the Marienberg Fortress which is at the far end from where you enter the fortress. Some guide books refer to it as an over flow museum compared to the Main-fränkishes Museum, ... [more ]
Dom St. Kilian 3.0 stars
Church, Cathedral, Chapel - #12 of 14
Dom St. Kilian (Saint Kilian’s cathedral) is Würzburg’s cathedral, so for that reason alone it is in my opinion a must see. The cathedral was built starting in 1045 in the Romanesque style. However, what you see today upon entering the church is ... [more ]
Ringpark Würzburg 3.0 stars
Park - #13 of 14
Having walked several times along the main busy street 'Röntgenring' in Würzburg, I decided to take a look inside 'Ringpark Würzburg' situated next to the main train station. Before I knew the area well, I wasn't sure where the park would ... [more ]
Marienkapelle 2.0 stars
Church, Cathedral, Chapel - #14 of 14
Marienkapelle (St. Mary’s chapel) is a Gothic church located right next to Würzburg’s market square. Although my guide book told me it was easy to over look this church, I think the author must be insane or blind, one or the other. It’s a fairly ... [more ]
