Würzburg, the centre of lower Franconia, has been the seat of a Bishop since the early middle ages - it is a very catholic town. It is also the seat of a renowned old university, and thousands of students make any town young and lively. The hills around the Main valley with the fortress opposite the old town and the surrounding vineyards and forests form a pretty landscape.
