Road trip to Würzburg and Bamberg

A road trip to a (maybe) lesser known/famous region of Bavaria: Franconia. More precisely, the cities of Würzburg and Bamberg. I have never been there so far, but I liked it a lot. I think Würzburg is a little more urban than Bamberg, but also very nice. Bamberg is an incredible medieval town somehow comparable to Strassbourg or Tübingen (where I studied). Not surprisingly, Bamberg is an UNESCO word heritage.

Bamberg and the surrounding area locate a plethora of breweries AND good vineyards at the same time. Hence there is an incredible pub culture in this town and you get good food and drinks e-ve-ry-whe-re. Ok, Pubs are quite touristic, yes, but still small and authentic compared to things like the Hofbräuhaus in Munich. Really, really enjoyable.
