Würzburg – Baroque City with Southern Flair

The history of Würzburg goes back to the year 1000 BC when a Celtic stronghold was built on the Marienberg. The Marienberg Fortress is the landmark of the city, along with the Old Main Bridge with it's historic statues, and the Residenz, former Palace of the Prince Bishops, a splendid Baroque edifice, built by Balthasar Neumann, and listed in the UNESCO "World Heritage" as one of Europe's most precious architectural treasures.

Würzburg is also known as the "Gateway to the Romantic Road". It is the metropolis of sunny Franconia, a landscape whose vineyards flank the River Main, and are famous throughout the world. It is the Franconian wine that, in perfect harmony with Baroque splendour always makes a visit to Würzburg a memorable experience.

Many people come visit time and time again, not only because of the location alongside the Main River and the ease of getting here but also due to the unique atmosphere with its special mix of culture and ambiance, of world heritage and wine festivals, of modern and classical music, of avant-garde and age-old traditions, of sciences and easy-going atmosphere that makes this town so popular. The stunning historical architecture provides the perfect setting for everything Würzburg has to offer. 

The 2017 Conference will be held at the Würzburg Congress Center.  On the banks of the River Main, on the edge of the Old Town and a short walk from the train station and main hotels, the Center is centrally located.  Perfect in size and form, it offers an ideal venue for ICCBH.

Venue address: Würzburg Congress Centre, Pleichertorstraße, 07070 Würzburg, Germany
