Right on the main square, this lovely "old" building, rebuilt after the war, houses the tourist office. There are pictures of the terrible destruction of Wurzburg in a short, deadly raid of World War II.

Maybe after seeing a number of UNESCO and other really spectacular sites, we were expecting more. A big ho-hum on our part. It's attractive but not particularly memorable or interesting (in the grand scheme of things). Better hustle along to the Residenz (aka Residenzplatz) for...More
