Guided tour with an expert bilingual guide, consisting of a short stroll around the Vogelsburg with background information about its history, geography and spiritual heritage, and an introduction to wine-growing.

Make the most of your time at the Vogelsburg to find out more about this unique, historic location!
A qualified local English-speaking guide will take you on a short tour to explore the former castle and monastery with its surroundings.

During your stroll you will discover interesting and noteworthy aspects of the over 1100 years‘ history of the Vogelsburg as a fortress, monastery and destination for visitors.
From our vantage points the Balcony of the Main Loop and the vineyard „Vogelsburger Pforte“ beneath the former monastery walls (not accessible to the general public), you can enjoy the breathtaking view across the Main river valley, taking in some of the most famous wine-growing villages in Franconia.

Your Tour Guide will show you the river meander which forms the Loop of the Main, explaining why for many centuries high-quality wines have been made from the grapes grown here on the steep slopes under favourable climatic conditions.

To accompany the tour, we can offer you a glass of local sparkling wine or a selection of three wines from our wine estate, the Juliusspital in Würzburg.
