“Fantastic Tilman Riemanschneider!”

Museum fuer Franken
Ranked #14 of 91 things to do in Wurzburg
Attraction details
Reviewed September 25, 2015

I'm biased, as I came to Wurzburg to see the best collection of Tilman Riemanschneider work in the world, which did not disappoint. Also good selection of literature on him (the tourist centre in town had nothing,) Would have liked to have time to spend on the rest of the collections, (lots of Baroque) but the building itself is worth seeing (the armoury/arsenal0

It's a 30 minute, at times a steep walk along the foot path to the from the old bridge to the museum. Driving your car and parking it in the Fortress area is an option but there is a fee. I walked the footpath. I also combined the Mainfrankisches and Furstenbaum museum with one ticket price of (6 Euros) and was glad I did. There are 45 exhibition rooms filled with paintings, sculpture, crafts, and a variety of other artifacts from Wurtzburg and the region. Objects from the pre-historic era, Franconian wine culture and collection of historical traditional clothing are displayed. I enjoyed the Middle Ages armaments collection. Tilman Riemenschneider wood carvings are a highlight. The statue of Adam and Eve (1493) is magnificent as is the Mourners Maria (1505). Gothic sculpture Johann Wolfgang von der Auwera and gothic sculptures of the 14th century are represented. Paintings by Lucas Cranach the Elder and father and son Tiepolo. With 5400 square meters of floor space the museum is diverse enough to hold the interest of all who enter and professionally constructed enough to keep it. It is considered one of the major art collections of Bavaria.

Beautifully displayed, with light and space to enjoy each sculpture, this is an amazing collection of Riemenschneider's work. The staff in the museum are also very helpful and informative. From the museum there are good views of Wurzburg and the river.

We also saw a good display of wine-making equipment with huge wine presses. I wish we had had longer here.

Everything to like. A rambling eclectic display, but a good mix of art, sculpture, tapestry and silverware within wonderful historic interiors. Staff were excellent, very helpful and polite and just perfect.
