Best social activity ever! Go outdoors at the foot of the magnificent Burg and sip wine with your friends. I love that!

Always a great walk between Würzburg downtown and the Castle. Amazing view, great wine right on the bridge. Very local friendly faces!

This bridge crossing Main river is constructed in series of stone arches, with statues of saints along its course. It is the oldest bridge in the city of Würzburg. Now it is uses for pedestrian only. This bridge connects the old city to Marienberg fortress. The view from the bridge is fantastic.

Beautiful and amazing bridge. It has a wonderful sight and there are a few local where you can eat and drink a glass of wine. Since I visited Würzburg in winter, there are people drinking mulled wine, but apparently in summer the bridge could be really live and crowded. You have to cross this bridge to get from the city centre and the castle.

A great place to be to absorb the atmosphere of Prague. The heart of Prague if it could be called that. Very lively and very crowded. The boat ride under the bridge is a joy. Close to the old town, a must visit at night and in the day.

Medieval Walls of Avila

The city walls of Avila were built in the 11th century to protect the citizens from the Moors. They have been well maintained throughout the centuries and are now a major tourist attraction as well as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Visitors can walk around about half of the length of the walls.

The layout of the city is an even quadrilateral with a perimeter of 2,516 m. Its walls, which consist in part of stones already used in earlier constructions, have an average thickness of 3 m. Access to the city is afforded by nine gates of different periods; twin 20 m high towers, linked by a semi-circular arch, flank the oldest ones, Puerta de San Vicente and Puerta del Alcázar.
