Located just at the northern edge of Bavaria on the River Main, the city of Würzburg counts 125,000 inhabitants, out of which about 38,000 are students.
The city stands out due to its special mix of culture and ambiance, of world heritage and wine festivals, of modern and classical music, of avant-garde and age-old traditions, of sciences and party atmosphere which altogether makes it so popular. The stunning historical architecture provides just the perfect setting for everything Würzburg has to offer.
The Julius Maximilian University of Würzburg is rooted in more than 600 years of tradition and belongs to the oldest institutions of higher learning in Germany. Nowadays, it ranks among the country’s top mid-sized universities.
Despite the city’s relatively compact size, there are various historic and cultural sights to visit and enjoy which is why Würzburg bears the well-deserved name “The city of churches”. Far more than 60 beautiful churches shape the town’s silhouette such as the “Schönbornkapelle” and the “Marienkapelle” – only to name a few that visitors do not want to miss.
A major driving force behind the local tourism is surely “The Würzburg Residence”, designated World Cultural Heritage by UNESCO in 1981, it is considered a master piece of South German Baroque and one of the most prominent palaces in Europe. Würzburg is embedded in between magnificent vineyards from where you can have a panoramic view of the city’s church towers rising into the sky.
