Würzburg

The old baroque city on the river Main is the capital of the Bavarian government district of Lower Franconia and the center of viticulture in the German wine-growing region Franconia, In the middle of the 8th century it became a bishopric and a little later also the royal palace. The first university was founded in 1402. Over the centuries, a true monument was created with the Old Town Hall, Marienbrücke and Marienberg Fortress (in the foreground), bishop's residence and universities. During the Second World War, the city and its monuments were almost completely destroyed in a single bombing night, but after the war it was rebuilt in its former glory.
