Located on both sides of the river Main, amid parks and vine covered hills, the city of Würzburg is the center of Lower Franconia and of the Franconian wine-growing region. Three of Germany's largest vineyard estates are located here. Franconian wine in the typical Bocksbeutel-bottle can be enjoyed in numerous little taverns. Besides, there are a number of breweries, among them the famous "Würzburger Hofbräu".
Awarded UNESCO World Heritage, Würzburg offers an impressive townscape. Among numerous old, richly adorned buildings, the Residence and the Fortress Marienberg opposite to the Chapel of St. Mary are undoubtedly the city's most famous emblems. The Residence was built by the Bohemian architect Balthasar Neumann (1720-1744) and provided with the world's largest ceiling painting by the Italian artist Giovanni Battista Tiepolo. The Fortress Marienberg houses the Mainfränkisches Museum where you can admire the world-famous sculptures by Tilman Riemenschneider. Further sights worth seeing are the Haus zum Falken, a baroque building with a unique facade, the Old Main Bridge (offering a splendid view at the fortress), the City Hall and the Romanesque Cathedral (begun in 1045).
Würzburg maintains partnerships to several cities all over the world; in 1973, it received the European Award and the title European City.
The annual calendar of cultural events contains highlights of various kinds, among them music festivals (Mozart Festival, Classical Music Days, Baroque Festival with Wine and Music, Africa Festival, Würzburg Jazz Festival, Johann Sebastian Bach Days), wine festivals (Wine Village, Bürgerspital and Hofgarten wine festivals, Vintners' Festival) and public festivals (Kiliani Volksfest, Christmas Market).
The Julius-Maximilians-University was originally established in 1410, but then decayed due to the murder of its president in 1413 before being re-established in 1582. It is the alma mater for more than 20,000 students of a total of 130,000 citizens of Würzburg. Famous scientists have taught here, among them Nobel-prize honoured W. C. Röntgen, who discovered X-rays in Würzburg in 1895.

The workshop will be held at the lecture hall building of the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science which is easily reached by bus no. 10 or 14
Clickable overview maps of Würzburg and the University are available.


Würzburg may be viewed as "Hub of Germany" due to its excellent train connections and numerous motorway junctions:
