Barbarossa Garni Hotel
Theaterstrasse 2, Wurzburg, Bavaria, 97070, Germany
Nice budget choice
We have stayed at the Barbarossa 3 times. It is handy as sets at the edge of the pedestrian zone just a few blocks from the train station. A basic hotel with a good breakfast and very nice staff. Small rooms with few facilities but quite comfortable. We will probably return this year. I would recommend it to budget minded travelers.
Directions: 3 blocks from train station
City Centre hotel
The hotel reception is up a lift on 3rd floor. Friendly staff and cosy room with a good breakfast. I got a twin room for single price euro 70. I found this hotel through the Accomadation office at the DB rail station Oct 2011.
Directions: From rail station straight ahead for 300 m.

Bed and breakfast in germany
I am going to Romantic Road in Germany this March. Anyone knows of good bed and breakfast guest houses along this stretch for recommendation? As I would be driving, accomodation off the city is preferred especially places with free overnight parking.
Re: Bed and breakfast in germany
Hi, check www.romantischestrasse.de, click on the British flag for English and they can help you find the accomodation you want.
Or you can take the chance and not book ahead, March is not exactly tourist season, apart from the week before Easter. A couple I know did this a few years ago in May and never had any problems finding a small hotel, even though they spoke no German at all.
Re: Bed and breakfast in germany
Thank you, this is helpful.
Travel Tips for Würzburg
Start your visit in Wurzburg...
Start your visit in Wurzburg with a trip to the Marienburg Fortress, built in bits and pieces over 700 years, it's where the city's prince- bishops lived and ruled until 1719. Enter through the Scherenberg gate through the 15th century walls. The fortress has a great commanding view of the city: give yourself enough time to visit the fortress arsenal, now a museum.
Early summertime is the time...
Early summertime is the time for...STRAWBERRIES!!! There are strawberry farms all over the place where you go pick them yourself! Just take something to carry them in (like my old Easter basket?!), have it weighed, and start picking. There's nothing like fresh strawberries on a warm summer day...except a fresh strawberry floating in a glass of wine.
This building was founded in 1576 by Princebishop Julius Echter as a home for the poor and the invalids.
It's an impressive palace-like construction, wing facing the street 1789 by Geigel, garden wing with Rococo pharmacy 1699 by Petrini.
Kulturspeicher - great art and architecture
Wurzburg's new municipal art gallery, next to the River Main, is an absolute gem. Converted from a large, early C20th warehouse, it has a clever mixture of the solid old building with many clever new additions.
Inside you have, on the one side the city's large collection of figurative paintings and, on the other side, a zany modern collection of modern paintings and sculpture. The modern stuff contains a lot of optical illusions and tricks for the eyes. I went around with three children under 10 years old and, when they got bored with the serious stuff, the zany stuff kept them entertained for a while longer.
Its a short walk out of the city centre along the river, but well worth it for you culture-vultures.
Admission 3 euros adult, 1 euro child. See website for opening times - the website has an English version, which is a big bonus!! Large carpark too.
Marienkapelle - a lovely gothic church
Marienkapelle was built by the city of Wuerzburg between 1377 and 1480 at the same place, where in 1348 the old synagoge was destroyed togeather with the whole jewish quaters. The beautiful gothic church was built next to Falkenhaus and you will be first impressed by the great structures of the white facade decorated with lots red bricks and small extra spires, added to the facdes.
Take some time to see the side-entrance of the church, facing the Marktplatz : It looks nice, but the main-entrace is around the corner and will even look better than this one ! - see my pics 3-5 !
