Despite wartime damage, Würzburg’s historic center lining the River Main also has its fair share of sights, mostly ecclesiastical. But bear in mind this is also a major wine center, so head for one of the authentic weinstuben where you can sample hearty local cuisine and fine Franconian vintages (word of advice: remember to refer to your hosts as Franconians, not Bavarians).
As you cross the old statue-lined bridge and look back at Würzburg’s sharp spires, you may get a hint of Prague. Once on the other side, a quick climb takes you to the old fortress, Festung Marienberg, within whose walls nestles the red-and-white Marienkirche, Germany’s oldest surviving church.
