Würzburg is a city in northern Bavaria and is considered to be the beginning of one of the most beautiful  roadtrips in the world, the famous Romantic Road! The city is on a beautiful hillside location on the River Main and has rich history and also hosting a UNESCO World Heritage Site, which is the Würzburg Palace.

Würzburg is located in the middle of one of Germany’s largest wine growing regions and has excellent connections to other parts of the country such as Frankfurt and Nuremberg. Würzburg has about 124,000 inhabitants and is certainly one of the most beautiful German cities we have visited.

What To See...

Würzburg Castle

The impressive castle of Würzburg dates from the 13th century and is located on top of a hill, offering stunning views of the city. Definitely one of the top attractions of Würzburg.

Old Bridge

This old bridge connects one side of the city with the other, and from here you can also take stunning pictures with the castle as a backround. Locals are used to drinking the region’s great wine on the bridge, admiring the stunning views of the castle and the River Main.

Würzburg Cathedral

The Cathedral of Würzburg, built in Roman style is one of the most important places in the city that definitely deserves to be visited!

Würzburg Palace

This 18th century palace is situated in the Ringpark and is the most famous part of Würzburg along with the castle. Along with your entrance, there is a tour of the palace and costs 7,5 Euros per person. The entrance to the gardens of the palace is free.


A beautiful park in the heart of Würzburg which is ideal for a quiet walk, sporting activities or just if you want to relax for a while.

Nearby Excursions

Würzburg is located in an excellent location in Germany where you have an unlimited choices for one day excursions or if you want to combine a few days away from the city. As we said above, the city of Würzburg is the beginning of one of the most beautiful roadtrips across Germany but it would be better to spend much more time to see the wonderful villages during this epic journey and finally reach the fairytale castle of Neuschwanstein! We will talk extensively about this unbelievable region of Germany with more details in another trip.

The most beautiful short day trip you can take if you are in Würzburg is that of Rothenburg ob der Tauber, which is famous for its well preserved medieval old town and attracting tourists from all over the world. It is part of the popular Romantic Road that crosses southern Germany and one of the most beautiful villages in the whole country. Rothenburg is only 45 minutes (60 km) by car from Würzburg and is the perfect choice for a one day excursion.

What To Eat

German cuisine is one our favorite as well as many people who love meat, potatoes and vegetables. In Würzburg, you will find many good restaurants serving authentic German dishes but in case you want a short break from meat, then we have an excellent suggestion for you.

The Italian restaurant Locanda, where you will find incredible pizzas and pasta! It is famous for its huge portions and the very tasty food it serves. It’s a hangout for many locals and especially for youth, so if you are planning to visit it, make sure you made a reservation because the wait is very long, especially on weekends…

How to move

Würzburg is a relatively small town and you can easily explore it simply on foot. The city’s main attractions are gathered around the river but it may be difficult for you to climb the castle because it’s quite uphill.

Frankfurt Airport is about 1:15 minutes (124 km) away from the city of Würzburg and is easily accessible by car, bus or train directly. The bus price is 16 euros per person and the train price is 20 euros per person for one route.

Where to stay

Accommodation in Würzburg is reasonably priced and a very good double room in the city center costs around 65-90 euros including breakfast. There are of course more expensive options, but it is clearly up to you and the budget you have for your vacation. You can make your reservations via Booking.com
