This used to be a hospital or old people's home. It is a very spacious structure built around a court yard. I think in the summer one can eat outside here. We arrived quite late in the evening. This was no problem at all. Our waiter was friendly and helpful. My friends had some typical franconian dishes, like sauerbraten (very... More

The winery has a tour where it's explained the history of the winery and the wine production in the area (Franconia), and it's completed with a tasting the local production. Excellent wine

A famous wine cellar with over 700 years history and also VDP certificate, which located in the center of the city underground! A typical exprience in Franconia. The most impressive things were the huuuuge wood barrels and amaaaaazing Riesling! I should say the Weinprobe deserve a try. Since I didn't know it's also a restaurant. Otherwise I would have had...

When I visited my daughter, studying in Würzburg, she insisted we visit this place one evening with a couple of her friends. This was several years ago, but I don't have the option to pick a date earlier than 2014. It looks as if not much has changed. I'm certainly glad I agreed. We sampled quite a lot of fine... More

My friend and I came here after the wine tour at the residence. They have tons of local wines you can try at very reasonable prices. Also some nibbles so you don't get too drunk!
