The town settled around the Castellum Virteburch in the 5th century. On 9th June 1156 Frederick I Barbarossa married Beatrice of Burgundy in Wurzburg. The town was destroyed during the 30 Years War. Under the reign of the bishops-princes Schonborn (1642-1746) the town reached the maximum shine and became one of the best Baroque towns in Germany. During the Second World War the bombardments (16 march 1945) destroyed the 90% of the town turning it into a hill of rubble. But as a phoenix the city is risen and in 1970 it was completely reconstructed.
The masterpiece of Wurzburg is the wonderful Residenz where you can see two importants frescos made by G.B.Tiepolo, works made by Bossi, and the rooms reconstructed after the devastation of the war.
But in the town you must see also the Marienbur, the Alte Mainbrucke, the Dom, the Stift Haug and much more.
Enjoy your visit!!!
