  • Always enjoy a hilltop fort or castle that overlooks a river and town and this is a grand one. Well worth visiting Wurzburg for.

  • This fortress is holding thousands years of cultural, historical and religious symbol. It can be a great place to visit and by walking around you can see the whole city of Wuerzburg and the beauty of the nature. You know the height of this fortress is 873 feet. If you want to see how this fortress make the bridge between modern and ancient architecture then you are invited to visit. Thanks a lot for reading my review carefully. Please, don't forget to like and follow my profile.
  • Amazing view from the garden and the museum (5 euro admission) is quite impressive. I did not think the museum would be that extensive. It takes you on a time journey from the early farming era to the Baroque period.
