We are back to Wurzburg. There are a few things we did not get to see on our first visit here and since the city is so beautiful, the weather is great and we have time before our holidays we drove out for a second look.
Marienberg Fortress is a prominent landmark on the Main river in Würzburg, Germany. The mighty Fortress Marienberg is the symbol of Würzburg and served as a home of the prince-bishops for nearly five centuries, then the prince bishops moved to the Residence palace down in the city which we visited last time. Merienberg was a fort since the ancient times. After Gustavus Adolphus of Sweden conquered the area in 1631, the castle was reconstructed in the Baroque style. Today the fortress is a museum, with a lot of places to explore including the gardens which offer spectacular views of the city, the river and the vineyards surrounding the city.
