World Heritage, Wine Enjoyment, Wellbeing

The Würzburg Residence is the main work of southern German baroque architecture and also one of the most important palaces in Europe. As early as 1981, UNESCO included it – as the third building in Germany – in the list of objects belonging to the World Heritage. It was built between 1720 and 1744 according to plans by Balthasar Neumann.

With the Würzburg State Gallery, the Residenz also houses a branch gallery of the Bavarian State Painting Collections dedicated to the great centuries of Venetian painting.

Marienberg Fortress

Marienberg Fortress is located just a stone’s throw from the city center on the left bank of the Main River. It is surrounded by vines and looks down on the old university town with its domes, towers and bridges. With its rich historical past and proud appearance, Marienberg Fortress is one of the most impressive architectural monuments from ancient times. The history of the mountain fortress can be traced through three millennia.

A charming hiking trail leads to the Marienberg Fortress from St. Burkard. In addition, the Marienberg Fortress can be reached on foot via the Tellsteige as well as via the grounds of the State Garden Show of 1990.
