Just a few days after my parents packed up for home, my sister and brother-in-law arrived! Megan and Dan stayed with us in Würzburg for 4-days before setting off to Spain and England. We had splendid weather for their visit and Würzburg was busy with weekend activity. We showed them a few of the local sights: the Residenz, Festung Marienberg, and the Rococo Gardens in Veitshöchheim.

Yup, that is half of a pizza!
We ate Würzburger bratwurst in the Marktplatz on Saturday morning and scoped out the weekend activity, a rubber duck river race for charity.
We rented bikes for the day from the local bike shop and peddled along the Main river. We passed through Veitshöchheim, a village not far from us where the Schönborn Bishop-Princes built their Summer Residenz and Rococo gardens in the 18th C. Afterwards, a biergarten.
… And a little bit of Eis.
Late in the day we walked up to the fortress grounds to lookout over the city. We brought one of the wines we enjoy from the vineyards around Würzburg, Consilium Silvaner.
We introduced Meg and Dan to the Döner kebab sandwich shop in our neighborhood. Two more converts who are puzzled as to why savory Turkish-style street food has never made it to the USA Midwest. Someone please open a dang Döner shop!
