  • "Impressive encounters with a young old city - Würzburg 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 Würzburg, 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 Würzburg bishopric in 742, Würzburg has been the religious center of the region."
