Würzburg holiday rentals - a highlight of Franconia
Würzburg is the jewel in the crown of one of Germany's most beautiful regions, Franconia. The town is a cultural centre, full of impressive buildings such as the Falkenhaus, the Hofkirche, or the Kiliansdom, and plenty of museums – culturephiles will love having a holiday rental Würzburg.
The town's most famous landmark is the palace, the Residenz, which is one of Europe's most famous rococo castles, with gardens to match that are a lovely place to take a stroll. The main staircase in the palace is without a doubt one of the most splendid in Europe. The imposing Marienberg fortress, with a 1200 year history, is also well worth a visit. Take your time exploring the pedestrianised old town, which is home to plenty of charming coffee shops, authentic Franconian restaurants, international restaurants and shopping opportunities, then take advantage of staying in a Würzburg holiday rental and head to the market to pick up some produce and try your hand at re-creating local dishes.
While Würzburg is beautiful at all times of year, it's a particularly good idea to stay in a holiday rental Würzburg during Advent, so you can visit the magical Christmas market. The market square in the centre hosts over a hundred stallholders, where you can buy everything from arts and crafts, to Christmas decorations, to sweets, sausages and, of course, Glühwein.
