The walk up will take you through the stations of the cross which allows you to catch your breath! I counted the steps and there were 329 to the top! The views from the top were outstanding...especially across the way to the Fortress. I was shocked to find there was no easy way to get to the Fortress from here... More

The name of this small church by the local people is Kaeppele. This wonderful building was planed by Balthasar Neumann from 1748-1750. This is one of the finest churches from Wurzburg, highly decorated with an wonderful fresco and you have a great view over the landscape gratis.

Wonderful view of the city and the fortress. Take the steps and contemplate the beautiful statues from 1778 illustrating the 14 stations of the cross. Beautiful chapel.

We arrived at the rear of the chapel. We later found, and returned home, down the elaborate... More

A must if you are in Wurzburg; very impressive. Time an early morning or late afternoon here, with a visit to the fort. If hiking up isn't for you, take the scenic drive.

Looks brilliant from a distance, especially with Festung nearby. Lots of stairs to walk up but well worth the physical effort, great views of city.
