Around the market place and Eichhornstrasse, 100 dealers offer a wide range of products and services for visitors. Arts and crafts, craftsmanship and many delicacies will inspire you. A tour of the Franconian city and a visit to the residence, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, round off this trip.


Day 1:   Arrival in Würzburg

Experience the romantic flair in the baroque Würzburg, the heart of the Franconian wine country. Today you have the first opportunity to stroll around the Würzburg Christmas market. At the stands around the market place and the Eichhornstraße you can expect a varied assortment of around one hundred dealers. Festively decorated stands are set up, which offer not only craftsmanship but also sweet delicacies. Here it smells of mulled wine and roasted almonds. Towards evening, the Christmas lights shine and the Marienkapelle and the Falkenhaus are bathed in a romantic light.


Day 2:   City Tour and visit of the Residenz in Würzburg

You are expected today for a tour of the bishop's town and a guided tour of the residence. 

This tour through the old town of Würzburg takes you past many sights. Besides the Gothic Marienkapelle and the Falkenhaus with its magnificent rococo façade on the market square, your path will also pass the historic town hall and the Romanesque Kiliansdom. A view from the Old Main Bridge to the fortress, Käppele and the surrounding vineyards rounds off this short visit. The old town, cathedral and residence bear witness to the southern flair. At every turn you will encounter baroque joie de vivre here. 

A visit to the residence, which has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site, concludes today's programme. In addition to the Court Church with its magnificent furnishings, you can visit many style rooms, which contain a wealth of furniture, tapestries, paintings and other art treasures of the 18th century. The tour through the residence begins on the ground floor with the vestibule and the garden hall and then leads over the famous staircase to the upper floor, where the other rooms are located. 

 

Afterwards you have time for another stroll over the Christmas market at the Marienkirche. Enjoy the unique atmosphere and tradition of this market, probably one of the most beautiful Christmas markets in Germany.
