With magnificent buildings, a romantic old town, and spectacular vantage points, the city of Würzburg is considered a pearl on the Main. This part of Franconia in southern Germany is a delight for both city and nature lovers. A stone’s throw from the historic town centre, you can reach wonderful countryside, sprawling parks, and forests. In this Collection, we present seven walks that reveal this perfect mix of urban life and nature in Würzburg.
Franconia’s idyllic nature is only a short walk from Würzburg. Within a few minutes of the old town, you can reach steep vineyards, relax on the banks of the Main, or enjoy a great view over the city skyline from the Marienberg Fortress. With numerous parks and gardens, Würzburg is a wonderfully green city. But, if you want even more nature, you can visit the forests on the outskirts of the city, the picturesque Steinbach Valley, or the Nikolausberg mountain.
The walks in this Collection are suitable for the whole family. You can choose from a range of itineraries to make the most of your days in Würzburg, Franconia’s second-largest city. If it’s your first time visiting the city, then the city walks give you a great overview. Almost all of the walks start and end directly in the old town, or can be reached easily by public transport. In Franconia, a cosy beer garden or hearty snack is far away. After your trip into nature, you can explore the heart of the lively university city in the evening.
