Originally, there was a celtic palisade castle at this site. 704 AD the first Würzburg church was erected here. At the beginning of the 13th century fortifications were built around the church. The fortress was expanded and renovated several times during the Renaissance and Baroque periods.

The walking tour leads to the castle keep, the Scherenbergtor, the Marienkirche - one of the oldest round churches in Germany, the temple above the deep well from the Renaissance period, the dungeon of Tilman Riemenschneider, and the Fürstengarten with its magnificent views of the city.

Due to extensive renovation works, the route of the current guided tour may change.
