W├╝rzburg: explore Franconian wine metropolis with high quality of life

Perfect for a city break: W├╝rzburg is one of the most livable cities in Germany, according to WirtschaftsWoche. In addition to the Old Main Bridge (which you should definitely pay a visit to if you are interested in "Br├╝ckenschoppen", i.e. tasting the traditional Franconian wine), a visit to the old university town is also worthwhile because of the historical sights: the town hall is a complex of buildings from several eras - especially the Grafeneckart is a great sight! Another highlight is, for example, the mirrored Emperor's Hall in the W├╝rzburg Residence: thanks to the "most perfect spatial work of art of the Rococo period", the Residence is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site.

A day in W├╝rzburg

Drink a glass of wine on the Old Main Bridge, admire your reflection in the palace's imperial hall and enjoy a meal at Germany's oldest pizzeria.

Augsburg: rich Fugger city with impressive old town quarter

Augsburg is the third largest city in Bavaria and one of the oldest cities in Germany: the Roman provincial capital Augusta Vindelicorum soon became a medieval bishop's seat, then a regular venue for imperial assemblies and later the famous home of powerful patrician families. Walk in the footsteps of the Threepenny Opera and dine like Goethe. You will quickly discover: Augsburg is first choice when it comes to beautiful cities in Bavaria that are worth a day trip!

A visit to Bavaria's third-largest city is like travelling back in time to the Renaissance, largely thanks to the work of master builder Elias Holl.
