We were dropped off fairly near this church to start off, it would be a hike to get here from the Main River from where we started. Really interesting outside, reminiscent of some Russian Orthodox churches I have visited. The interior is also nice. Nice...More

My colleagues and I visited there during the lunch break before the next meeting in Würzburg. It‘s the place that you could release the stress also the Chapel and scenic view to the town of Würzburg. The interior is really fascinating!

I recommend this if you have time. The drive is confusing but the view is worth it. A very uniquely built church with a very pretty interior!

I am a you‘ve seen one church you‘ve seen dozens, type of guy. Here you come not just for the church, but for the fabulous view of the Würzburg city and the surrounding vineyards, countryside and the river Main.

Also the onion cúpulas were cool, there is a beer garden around. Long walk from the city but there is a parking place around.

You need a car to get here as it is not in the centre of town. But you will need to hike quite a few stairs to reach the church aswell. It’s a nice quaint church.

The trail to this church starts up a beautiful treed path. It continues up steps to terraces which depict the stations of the cross. Both the exterior and interior of the church are stunning. There are also great views of the fortress, town and river.

It's a little uphill climb, but it's worth all the effort. Kapuzinerkloster carries a very unique and unmistakably Bavarian design and good for a nice 1-2 hour. A true hidden gem. While it can be seen from the main bridge, not many people bothers to...More

The views from the top were outstanding. There are 329 steps to the top as you move through the stations of the cross. I would call it a must as it's one of the buildings that stands out on the west side of the river...More
