Würzburg was founded in the 10th century and is truly a marvel to behold. The combination of classically architecture, historic fortresses, and an amazing palace make for the perfect German tourist destination. If you were lucky enough to be stationed in Würzburg then you know all of this first hand. One could spend all day wandering the old city and taking in the sights. Every day in the summer, tour ships stop along the river and disgorge their cargo of tourists to attack the city’s sights. Make sure you opt for a tour of the residential palace to catch a view of the famous staircase.
