Wurzburg, Germany

Wurzburg Bayern- St. Boniface established a bishopric in the 8th-century, changing this Roman outpost on the River Main into an important ecclesiastical center. Over the centuries, Wurzburg was host to several imperial diets, and in the 16th centuries it joined the ranks of Germany's university cities. Today the city is an industrial and wine headquarters that hosts a Mozart festival in June. It also is the northern terminus of the Romantische Strasse or Romantic Road, a scenic highway that extends to Fussen.
