Photo Spots in Würzburg – the best instagrammable locations around town
Are you ready to level up your feed with some stunning pictures? Würzburg is one of Germany’s most beautiful cities so I’m sure you will capture some excellent content here. To save you some time, I’ve listed all my favorite photo spots in Würzburg in this article.
But wait – Is it called Würzburg or Wuerzburg?
If you research your stay in Würzburg, you will come across different terms regarding the city’s name. “Würzburg” would be the official german term here. Since most other languages don’t use the letter “Ü,” the town is usually referred to as “Wuerzburg” internationally. Both versions are correct.
Photo Spots in Würzburg
1 | Schustergasse
You’ll find this vibrant street in the heart of the old town. The colorful lanterns make it an excellent Instagram spot! In addition, there are some cool little shops, including a store for camera equipment, in case you’re looking for some new stuff… 🙂
2 | Alte Mainbrücke
The famous “old bridge” is one of the main attractions in Würzburg but also a great photo spot. Here, you’ll have a great view of the old town and St. Kilian’s cathedral on one side and the monumental fortress on the other.
3 | Wine and Dine
While we’re already at the old bridge, let me add another spot to the list. The restaurant Alte Mainmühle doesn’t only offer tasty food and wine; it also is the perfect chill-out location with its balcony seating. Now, you can capture the vivid life on the bridge combined with a bit of wine and dine lifestyle. Enjoy!
4 | Marienberg Fortress
The fortress is one of the main attractions in Würzburg and another scenic spot to take some stunning photos. I enjoyed the view of the city, the gardens, and the vineyard path up and down the fortress. You’ll definitely find more than one spot up there.
5 | Residence Gardens (“Hofgarten”)
Talking about famous attractions in town: You can’t miss the Residence Gardens either. While taking pictures inside the Residence isn’t allowed, the garden area will make up for this. Take a walk and snap photos of beautiful flowers and walkways – all with the stunning Residence as a backdrop!
6 | Old town scenery
Of course, the city scenery also offers some incredible sights to capture. The Falkenhaus has a unique facade, the view from Schmalzmarkt towards Neumünster looks excellent, and the iconic street facing the cathedral is stunning, too.
7 | Juliusspital
We found this spot by accident after dining in the Juliusspital. This hallway is located in the Spitals backyard and another great photo spot in Würzburg that’s not one of the iconic sights.
