Würzburg should be on the bucket list for all history buffs and even more so for anyone into "liquid culture," as this city is immensely famous for its wine. The latter isn't only the reason for plenty of centuries-old wineries that offer tastings and tours on their lovely premises in and around the city but it also shapes the landscape around town with its vineyards. Also, due to the wine, the largest life-form in Germany is said to exist in Würzburg -- the wine cellar fungus of the remarkably stunning, world-famous, UNESCO-heritage Würzburg Residence.

To match the wine's standard there is an endless variety of equally high quality food all around with plenty of old-fashioned Bavarian classics but also all kinds of modern cuisine. The city also has a fair bit of student life and the according venues, but overall it's a calm place with a pleasant atmosphere. Big parts of Würzburg were entirely flattened during WWII by a great number of bombs, but the city has been restored in its old style and, with its buildings and location along the Main River, is absolutely lovely.

Getting around in Würzburg isn't super practical but it is feasible. As usual for a German city this size, there are plenty of train connections to get in and out, and in town itself there is a limited number of tramways and some buses but they are not quite as useful as in other towns. This is especially valid for the tramways as they are just not made for the small alleys, river crossings, and steep hills.

Luckily enough the few Würzburg hostels that exist are really central, so public transport will very likely not even be needed. The hostel choices here are really nice in all respects but still affordable. Combine this with the beauty of the city and you can probably figure out yourself that in high season (summer and early fall), Würzburg hostels can be booked solid and should be booked in advance! There are private and government-run hostels in Würzburg from which to choose. In contrast to other cities in Germany, in Würzburg both options can be equally recommended for individual travelers.
