Other positive – and more often than not decisive – site factors are the low cost of living, intact social structures, a wide variety of local recreational spaces, extensive sports and fitness possibilities, a lively club life and family-friendly facilities. For example, kindergarten placement with no waiting lists.
Culture stands for entertainment and jobs
A rich cultural life not only provides entertainment. It also creates jobs and enhances the region’s value. The city is proud of their 200-year Mainfranken Theater where some 250 people are employed. Smaller stages ensure a colorful diversity and fill cultural niches in an excellent fashion.
Charismatic permanent and special exhibitions
From a metropolitan point of view, the museums and galleries in and around Würzburg leave nothing to be desired. The art lover is offered everything from Greek vases over old masters and representatives of Japanese culture to ecclesiastical works of art. Besides the high-profile permanent presentations, the Museum im Kulturspeicher succeeds time and again to attract special exhibitions with works and artifacts from internationally known artists whose attraction goes far beyond regional borders.
Festivals and pageants pull crowds
Festivals and pageants which regularly draw thousands of people have become fixed items in the region’s cultural calendar. The City of Würzburg stages the Mozart festival, the Africa Festival, the Hafensommer (Docks Festival), the Umsonst & Draußen Festival (Free & Outside), and the International Film Weekend.
