For some reason, photography was not allowed inside the palace-like Würzburg Residenz, but I snuck this photo of one of the most ostentatious rooms. This explains why the peasants sometimes revolt against royalty.
The gothic Marienkirche (Church of St. Mary) in the center of Würzburg dates back to around 1400 AD. It is also known as Marienkapelle. The church contains the tomb of the baroque architect Balthasar Neumann, who built the Würzburg Residenz.
A narrow walkway leads from the castle to a square famous as being the residence of artist Albrecht Dürer from 1509 until 1528. On the left is a tavern named in Dürer's honor. The sign states that they serve beer from a brewery that was founded in 1328.
Built in the late 14th century, the fountain stands 62 feet high and resembles a church spire as it narrows from three stages to the finial. Forty stone figures represent the world-view of the Holy Roman Empire. The railing includes a brass ring which originally served as a water spigot.
