Würzburg is a former bishop's city, which under their rule flourished and grew. During this period were built the most famous buildings, which are listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Although the city was severely damaged during World War II, thanks to a thorough reconstruction, most of the monuments were restored in their original form. The city is located in a beautiful valley, through which flows the river Main. You can visit the vineyards that are on the slopes around the river and try the local wines later in the city! Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen discovered X-rays here in 1895!
