    We are staying at the Wurzburgwr Hof Hotel. We need restaurant advice on places that are walking distance of the hotel. Preferably in The 10 to 20 Euro range, have English menus, looking for basic food like sausages, snitzel, and also good breakfasts. We do not drink wine but I like beer and my wife drinks coke. Simple places will work.

  • Bus tickets where toget them

    Where do I get bus tickets. What is the cost of a single ticket and do I validate them on the bus? We are staying at our hotel near The cathedral. This would be for bus. Number 9that goes to the fortress.

    by billtoliver Online Now Jul 27, 2015 at 5:39 AM

    what is the easiest way to get there from our hotel in town. Is there a link for the bus and tram maps of Wurzburg. I understand that a bus number 9 leaves from the Residenz to go there but that only runs about once an hour, not too convenient.
    Should I just cab there and if so will there be cabs around when we leave? Walking is not an option for us.

  • Sport Verein

    by Hoss1992 Online Now Jul 7, 2015 at 6:15 PM

    Ich such nach einem bestimmten Sportverein der wohl in einem kleinen Dorf in der Umgebung von Würzburg ist. Das Dorf hat ca. 600 Einwohner, und auch so ca 480 Mitglieder. Dieser verinnerlicht bietet eine Sport Art an, die so ähnlich ist wie Basketball, nur das dass freistehende Körbe sind, und es einen 3 und 6 Meter Linie gibt für strafen. Jeder Korb zählt aber nur einen Punkt. Weiss einer von euch zufällig wie der Verein oder die Sport Art heißt?
    Vielen Dank im Voraus!!

    Does anyone have recommendations for a bed & breakfast, pension, or hotel in Würzurg for 2 nights during the first week in September?

    We're 3 people in out late 60's who like places that are well kept, personable, friendly, and have local ambience.
    Price: Middle range price; flexible but ideally as far under 120€ as would be reasonable for the 3 of us.

    We'll be arriving and leaving by train, which may (or may not) affect choice of location.

    I have spent a couple of hours strolling in Wuerzburg last Eastern Monday. Amongst the pictures I took that day, there is the statue of that guy:
    "Eastern Monday in Wuerzburg" - Würzburg by Djinn76
    He looks like some kind of old farmer.

    Some post-trip curiosity, could anyone tell me who he is or what does the statue represent?

    Also why was he celebrated with eggs garlands? Was it that statue in particular or a more generic tradition around Eastern?

    I'm in Wurzburg for 3 nights/4 days.

    I shall explore the town itself, go to Rothenburg-ob-der-Tauber (I know it's touristy but the history/architecture appeals...I shall visit early in the day) and possibly Bamberg (though I may go there from Nurnburg instead). From Nurnberg (3 nights, 3 days) I'll definitely visit Regensburg.

    Given my interest in (early) history and archaeology, is there anywhere (accessible by public transport) which I might otherwise miss?

    Thanks in advance for your help.
