  • In addition to the residence the next featured attraction. The climb is worth. About the garden of the "old" State garden show of less burdensome because there is much to see. The Outlook is famos and impressive building with its fortress walls.

  • Repair. Look outside only after a hearty lunch. In General, this is the route back and forth without much emotion. Beautiful park. From overlooking the city. Everything.

  • Imposing medieval building, the fortress houses a Museum and a gift shop, and a stylish café. The courtyard is open for visitation, but the Museum is paid. If you're staying in Wurzburg, is a compelling attraction.

  • The fortress is awesome. From the top we can see the old town, old bridge with main river. Amazing view, the route to go up is also nice. There is also restaurant and souvenir shop inside. During the summer there are plenty event here, such like open air cinema.
  • Worth a look around as it includes a great view of the city. If you do decide to visit then walk up through the Umweltstation, this consists of a delightful green park that meanders up the hillside. Much cooler than the road and way more interesting. As with most places we have visited the information notices around this site are in German language only.
  • Great castle. Beautiful view. Only the lady in the souvenir shop is a real dragon. That's why 4 instead of 5 stars.
  • Site seeing. Good location. On the mountain. Have a lovely view of the city of Würzburg.
  • When you are in Wuerzburg, you should go up there and see this castle. There is also amazing view from the hill. Perfect place for those, who like to see panorama of the city.
