    Beautiful fortress from spectacular, accessible by car with paid parking or walk through two paths indicated just past the bridge. We took the left leg, the path is in the Sun between the rows of vines and, in summer, it gets tested by hot especially if you have kids, I recommend because much more pleasant, the right path almost completely through a beautiful shaded garden took on the way back. Anyway don't forget water and inquire of the visiting hours.

    The well-preserved fortress of Würzburg bishops is worth a visit. Participate in a guided tour. Until they understand the construction of the plant and can in the left, enter the parapet walk, and so on. Otherwise, they will perceive only a large pile of stones.
