The City of Würzburg
Würzburg can look back on a long tradition as a student city. Thus, plenty cafes, bars and clubs as well as theater groups, churches and sport programmes offer many attractions to more than 35.000 students. Surrounded by vineyards, parks and a river, Würzburg provides ideal oppurtunities to relax, have a picnic or study outside. Students love to linger around the riverside of the Main, stroll through the numerous gardens and parks, relax at the city beach and hike across the vineyards. However, wonderful historic buildings like the residence or the fortress Marienberg indicate the long tradition and history of Würzburg. Additionally, Würzburg offers a variety of cultural events such as concerts, theaters and poetry slams as well as music and cultural festivals where every taste can find compliancy.
