Location

Würzburg is the capital of lower Franconia and one of the loveliest baroque cities in Germany. It is also famous as the center of Franconian wine production. In fact, the town is beautifully embedded in the valley of the Main river, surrounded by wine-covered hills. A famous landmark of Würzburg is the fortress Festung Marienberg and the World Heritage Würzburg Residence. The Multi-ITN STRIKE and WWCSC Mini-Workshop will be hosted by the Julius-Maximilians University of Würzburg at the Hubland Campus in the Informatics Building - Turing Lecture Room (How to reach the Computer Science Building (Informatik)).

The city of Würzburg is very well connected by train to the following airports: Frankfurt, Nürnberg, Stuttgart, and Münich (in order of increasing distance).
To reach the Hubland Campus from the city center, the following buses are available: Line 10, 14, 114.
