A glass of wine on Alte Mainbruecke

To cross Alte Mainbruecke without wine but with a bicycle, because it is always crowded with tourists

Itinerary Overview

Franken is a beautiful area in the south of Germany, famous for its wine. Usually, the locals roll the r and if they speak the Franconian accent it is a bit hard to understand them.

I visited Würzburg several times to visit a friend and explored the surrounding during my visits. If you like the vibe of a smaller German city, where lots of students live and people

I like to drink wine and hang out in the evenings in the city center or go to crowded bars, you will also like this place for sure. Because Würzburg is in Bavaria, you will find some events where people wear traditional clothes and drink beer in the beer tent or sit in a beer garden where you can have traditional Bavarian food and beer.
