“Würzburg is sooo beautiful … Enjoy Würzburg and the wines of Franconia”, my travel friends advise about my short stay in Würzburg. As part of the “Romantic Road“, the Franconian town is surrounded by countless romantic vineyards on the Main river. I take to visiting “Vinothek Wohlsein Weine” with their goal to introduce younger, smaller wineries and winegrowers from the Franconian wine region. For wine lovers like me an absolute must when visiting Würzburg!
In order to discover the old town of Würzburg, it is worth taking part in a historical city tour. Among other things, I learn that the famous German minnesinger Walter von der Vogelweide is buried in Würzburg: The traces of him in tales and songs stretch as far as the Danube valley and my homeland.
I still have one highlight for you. The Residence Palace of Würzburg with its beautiful, terraced gardens. No wonder the “Romantic Road” starts right here!
The administration office of the Bavarian Palaces & Fortresses is strict about the issue of a photo permit for the interiors of the famous residence. Only a little later, I can proudly boast to have “got hold” of one! You will thus also see some pictures of the exhibition rooms here. And the staterooms of the Residence Palace of Würzburg? They are in no way inferior to castles like Versailles or Schönbrunn! If you love the flair of historical buildings and magnificent gardens, you will have found your place here. How fitting it is that the “Romantic Road” takes its leave from here and I will soon travel on it, towards further highlights of Romanticism …
Würzburg, I’ll definitely be back one day, that’s for sure! And just because it’s worth taking the extra look, I’ve made this short travel video for you:
