Wurzburg is the start of the "Romantische Strasse"(Romantic Road) and it truly beautiful. We arrived in Wurzburg about lunchtime and took a look around.
The main activity of our stop was to visit the Marienberg Fortress. It was the residence of the prince-bishops from 1253-1720.
We toured a magnificent museum which included some of the most interesting works I've seen yet. Paintings from the 14th - 18th centuries, sculptures, furniture, flags, armament and most interesting were several artificats found near Wurzburg that predated Christ by several centuries! And we could look at them!

The "Residence" built for a 16th century bishop who thought the fortress was too limiting. This Residenz is four times the size of what you see here. It is VERY wide.
On to Rotenberg
