Wurzburg is a charming little town in the northern part of Bavaria. This 1300 year old city is scenic and full of historic sights. We think of it as a city of spires; it is rich with churches and cathedrals. The beautiful bridge over the Main River is a tribute to the bridge on the Charles River in Prague.
