Overall rating

4.8 / 5

based on 4 reviews

He usado dos veces el recorrido del tren y me ha gustado porque es un viaje corto de unos 40 minutos y se visitan los sitios turísticos de mayor interés, también con el audio te narran la historia de cada sitio.

A pretty little tour that shows all the important stations in Würzburg and provides a nice overview. The audio guide was inclusive and informative

This train is ideal for a brief overview of the city. The reservation was uncomplicated and fast.

Perfect to get an overview of the city, especially if you don't have German-speaking guests.

Würzburg is always worth a trip. Whether on foot or by train.
