Wuerzburg (Würzburg) , Germany

Würzburg (spell in English as Wuerzburg) is also one of Germany’s oldest city. I went there with a friend, Liway last January of this year. It was lots of fun as we went walking in this easy…well, that was all day walking in the very cold freezing weather..As you see in the picture, I really wore a very good winter jacket so I won’t get frozen. That is Germany in the winter time, it is really very cold. This city is also known as and administrative center.

Würzburg is also the capital of the German wine region Franconia which is famous for its mineralic dry white wines especially from the Silvaner grape.
