Würzburg

Charming hillsides, covered with vineyards, line the banks of the Main and overlook Würzburg, which was raised to an episcopal see in the year 741 by Boniface. In the course of twelve centuries, this town has produced a number of buildings which are absolute gems of architecture.

As early as 752, Würzburg had its cathedral, which was succeeded in the 11th century by a Roman three-naved basilica with four towers and a rich treasure. Other venerable churches of the same period are the Roman St. Burkard’s church, the St. Jacob's church, which sprang from a Roman pillar-basilica, and the New Minster with the memorial-stone erected to the memory of Walther von der Vogelweide, who died 1230. Foremost amongst Würzburg's ecclesiastical works of art are those by the modern-Gothic sculptor, Tilman Riemenschneider.

Occasionally the town was the seat of prominent bishops with princely rank, whom Würzburg has to thank for the magnificent residence building which was erected in the period from 1720 to 1744.

As far back as 704, Würzburg was under the protection of the fortress Marienberg. At the foot of this fortress three bridges cross the Main, the oldest of which was completed in 1543 and later on adorned — in rococo style — with twelve statues of saints.

Situated in a fertile region, blessed with vineyards, Würzburg enjoys an active economic and cultural life.
