In the city of Würzburg, which is also known as the heart of the Franconian wine country, you can visit the well-known Juliusspital, for example. Here you can not only taste the wines, but also take a tour of the historic wine cellar.
Another worthwhile destination is the town of Volkach, which is considered the "gateway to the wine country". Here you will find numerous wine bars and wineries that you can visit. In the vicinity of Volkach you can also discover picturesque vineyards and idyllic places.
