The Würzburg District takes pride in its unspoiled natural environment, where rivers traverse the countryside. Exploring by bicycle is the best way for you to enjoy the area, taking you through woods and fields and along riverbanks to romantic vineyards and beyond.

Towns & Villages in the Würzburg District
- Frickenhausen am Main
- Zell am Main
The district politically excludes the capital town, Würzburg, at its center, and radiates out through the countryside to include fifteen distinct market towns.
Among them are Höchberg, with its noteworthy, nearby Marienberg Fortress and locally brewed beer, and Rimpar, where the Grumbach vom Kobersberg Castle is located.
Southeast of the capital, Eibelstadt is a small, walled wine-producing town on the Main River, worthy of a stop for domestic tastings. Further south along the Main, Ochsenfurt is a major beer and wine town you will not want to miss. And deeper south, on the Mülbach and Gollach rivers, the medieval town of Aub has many old churches, buildings and ruins for you to explore.
Röttingen on the Tauber River is where you will find some of the richest soil for vines in Franconia. The varietals grown here include Riesling, Müller-Thurgau, and Silvaner, among others, plus a grape unique to the area, Tauberschwarz. Production is so small, you will not find wine from this local grape exported, so be sure to try it when you’re here! ;-)
