I few weeks ago, i took a little trip to Würzburg.
Only a few hours north of Munich by train,
I was excited to see what Würzburg had to offer.
Unfortunately, Würzburg failed to impress.
Perhaps not entirely, but I did return home a little disappointed.
Aside from the old buildings, towers, and churches scattered throughout the city,
Würzburg is dirty and a little run down.
and i'll admit, I prefer the more picturesque tourist cities (generally).
Although I have no regrets about making the trip here,
I also know that I will be living in this country for the next year.
Had I chosen to visit Würzburg on a short holiday,
I would have felt much more disappointed.
With this said, I will also say this-
if you are a traveling with a group of friends,
perhaps you would enjoy Würzburg more than I.
It is full of young people, bars, and drinking.
I was traveling solo,
and I prefer to party with at least one other person-
most the time.
where I stayed:
For 23 euro/night, I stayed in a 4-bed all girls dorm.
It was clean and bright and included lockers- no lock included.
breakfast was not included, and from what I have heard, not worth the 4 euros.
the doors slam very loudly in the hall way,
which can be bothersome in the middle of the night if you're a light sleeper like me.
the best part is that it is located right across the street from the main train station,
and the entire staff was insanely friendly.
