- "Impressive encounters with a young old city - WÃ¼rzburg offers lots of them. And spectacular ones at that. The Episcopal Residence built by Balthasar Neumann and featuring a ceiling fresco by the Venetian Tiepolo, the world's largest painting, can only be described in these terms. This clerical domicile from the 18th century has been a UNESCO cultural heritage site since 1982." From HistoricGermany.com. "The lively university and congress city of WÃ¼rzburg, gateway to the Romantic Road, is dominated by its most prominent landmark, the Fortress Marienberg. The origins of this fortress date back to around 1000 B.C., when a Celtic fortified refuge existed on this site. Since the foundation of the WÃ¼rzburg bishopric in 742, WÃ¼rzburg has been the religious center of the region."
