Are you visiting Würzburg for the first time? Below is a list of “Insider Tips” for things to see and do in Würzburg, (Wuerzberg) Germany.
When I have a visitor from out of town, the first place they want to see is the Residence Palace, a UNESCO World Heritage sight, and deservedly so.
When I want to escape the crowds/tourists, my favorite place to visit is the Käppele.
If this is a romantic trip, I recommend the Old Main bridge for kissing with a view.
The best place to walk the dog is the Leonhard-Frank-Promenade on the left bank of the Main River.
Museums are wonderful, but if you are traveling with kids, you’ll want to visit the indoor fun park “Kinderland Wuerzburg.”
Typical German food:
If you are looking for typical Würzburg cuisine, I recommend a “Schäufele,” a hearty Franconian pork roast with potato dumplings and red cabbage.
The best place to go for coffee & a breakfast treat is Café Brandstetter – they have the best “Hörnchen” a Franconian croissant variety.
Looking for cheap food in Würzburg? Go to “Wirtshaus Lämmle” or “Maulaffenbäck” as they are the best inexpensive restaurants. Restaurant Karthäuser” is the spot for late night dining.
For an expensive, yet quality meal, go to “Restaurant Kuno 1408”, 1 Michelin star.
Würzburg is best known for their excellent wines.
When you come to Würzburg, get your picture taken at the Residence Palace.
