Located on both sides of the river Main, amid parks and vine
covered hills, the city of Würzburg is the center of
Lower Franconia and of the Franconian wine-growing
region. Three of Germany's largest vineyard estates
are located here.
Franconian wine in the typical Bocksbeutel-bottle can be enjoyed in
numerous little taverns. Besides, there are a number of
breweries, among them the famous "Würzburger Hofbräu".
Awarded UNESCO World Heritage,
Würzburg offers an impressive townscape.
Among numerous old, richly adorned
buildings, the Residence and the Fortress Marienberg opposite
to the Chapel of St. Mary are undoubtedly the city's most famous
emblems. The Residence was built by the Bohemian architect
Balthasar Neumann (1720-1744) and provided with the world's
largest ceiling painting by the Italian artist Giovanni
Battista Tiepolo. The Fortress Marienberg houses the Mainfränkisches
Museum where you can admire the world-famous sculptures by
Further sights worth seeing are the Haus zum Falken,
a baroque building with a unique facade, the Old Main Bridge
(offering a splendid view at the fortress), the City Hall and
the Romanesque Cathedral (begun in 1045).
Würzburg maintains partnerships to several cities all over the
world; in 1973, it received the European Award
and the title European City.
The annual calendar of cultural events
contains highlights of
various kinds, among them music festivals (Mozart Festival,
Classical Music Days, Baroque Festival with Wine and Music,
Africa Festival, Würzburg Jazz Festival, Johann Sebastian Bach
Days), wine festivals (Wine Village, Bürgerspital and Hofgarten wine
festivals, Vintners' Festival) and public festivals (Kiliani
Volksfest, Christmas Market).
The Julius-Maximilians-University was originally
established in 1410, but then decayed due to the
murder of its president in 1413 before being re-established in 1582.
It is the alma mater for more than 20,000 students of a total of
130,000 citizens of Würzburg. Famous scientists have taught
here, among them Nobel-prize honoured W. C. Röntgen, who discovered
X-rays in Würzburg in 1895.
