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.
Pin It!

That's too bad that you were slightly disappointed but I'm sure looking back on this year you'll still be happy you made the trip. It's still a cool German city right ;) And lady your photos are amazing!!!

That bridge kind of reminds me of the Charles Bridge in Prague.

No way you were there! That's like 30 minutes from where I live and we go there quite often, cause if you know where to go, it's actually not that bad!
Sad we didn't get to meet!
Love the pics!

Oh! This is where I used to live when I lived in Germany! I agree the place is a little run down, and probably more so than it was back when I lived there. But the pictures are SO lovely! I recognize so many places!

I actually didn't make it to Wurzberg, and from what you say, maybe that's not awful??
Sorry it disappointed!

Too bad you didn't go after our trip to the Beerfest, then you would have had some people to meet up with!
