Wine Country Museums

You can learn many fascinating things at the museums in the Franconian Wine Country. Something to expect is a variety of exhibits and an unusual setting as you educate yourself on regional history, modern art, wine production or science.


Many times the building that houses a museum is just as memorable as the exhibits themselves. Take for example the ornate Baroque splendor of the Residenz Castle in Würzburg, or the simple, modern architecture of the Museum Georg Schäfer in Schweinfurt (home to a remarkable collection of paintings from the 19th century). Discover the world: World-famous art, architectural masterpieces, lovingly compiled exhibits of traditional crafts and local history. And there are museums dedicated to more unconventional topics, such as glass blowing and water-powered paper production.
