The Vogelsburg is an ancient monastery located just above the loop of the river Main. The site has been inhabited since the Stone Age. The first monastery was founded here in the 15th century. It has been destroyed and rebuilt again. In the 19th century, during the secularization, the monastery was closed down. After many changes in ownership, the building is now owned by the Foundation “Juliusspital Würzburg”, which dates back to the 16th century. To support the charitable work of the foundation, the founder endowed the Juliusspital with several vineyards. Nowadays, the Juliusspital – still a charitable foundation – is the second-largest winery in Germany.

The Vogelsburg is located just above the ancient and rather famous vineyard “Escherndorfer Lump” (translated: The Rogue from Escherndorf). The Silvaner from this vineyard is very renown for its quality and, after thoroughly testing this wine over many years, I can certainly confirm that as a matter of fact.

So on a mild Summer evening, you can visit the Vogelsburg, sip Main wine In the beer garden – go for the rogue – and enjoy the view of the river Main and one of the most prominent wine areas in Germany.
