Climb all 533 steps on a winding staircase to get to the top. Super impressive views. Of course, the interior at floor level is amazing. But this was a fun and challenging way to burn off a few vacation calories!

Very close to the Old University, this is a masterpiece. I think this is the nicest church in Würzburg.

Seen a lot of churches on our tour and this rates with the best of them. Nice to take in the splendor without actually having to venture inside. Can't say a lot because of this but the sheer beauty of it is apparent from the outside. Not just another church.

The church of St. Michael is in the east of the old university. In 1765 it was the foundation for the church today. It is a sight to see. My husband and I have been fortunate to travel around the world and agreed this is one of the most beautiful and ornate churches we have seen.
