About Wurzburg

Located on the Main River between Nuremberg and Frankfurt, Wurzburg was devastated by bombs and firestorms during World War II. Its major historic monuments have been restored, but since 90 percent of it was destroyed during the war, much of the city is distinctly modern, with a bit less charm than other Bavarian towns.

Wurzburg is home to Germany's second-oldest university, and about a quarter of its 130,000 residents are students. That academic atmosphere has produced 13 Nobel Prize winners.

The city was once ruled by prince-bishops, who held both religious and political power. The main attraction is their Residenz palace, built in the late 18th century. Some river cruise lines offer an included or optional excursion to the nearby town of Rothenberg from the port.

Why go to Wurzburg?

Pros:

Wurzburg is home to Residenz, a stunning former palace that has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site

Cons:

The city had to be rebuilt after the war, so it's fairly modern and lacks some of the charm of other German cities

Bottom Line:

Though most are not in their original form, history lovers will find plenty of interesting sights in Wurzburg

Currency & Best Way to Get Money?

Currency is the euro. Ships dock on the south side of the city, and there are no ATMs in the immediate area (the closest is on Virchowstrasse). You will find a bank across from the Residenz, and there are many banks and ATMs in the city center near the tourist office. For current currency conversion figures, visit www.oanda.com or www.xe.com.

Language?

The language is German, but many people speak English -- particularly because this is a university town.

I’d been to Wurzburg as a young teenager. I didn’t recognize the city. Tour was shorter than the others with some free time to spend in one of the oldest breweries.... Read More

Loved Wurzburg. The Bishops Residence was amazing. The city itself was so interesting and I felt I could settle here.... Read More

We did the Rothenburg optional tour and it was fabulous. What a lovely town. Again Viking included a lunch with this tour and it was very good. The restaurant was right in a very picturesque part of the town.... Read More

The Residenz in Wurzburg is one of the most incredible palaces I've ever visited -- and I've been to many. The staircase fresco vault, the stucco room, the Imperial Cabinet, and the Mirror room are all astounding.... Read More
