Old University

In 1582, Julius Echter von Mespelbrunn founded the University of Würzburg in a successful "second attempt" following the initial foundation in 1402. The Würzburg prince-bishop had a monumental building constructed for his university, a church included. Still today, the building is a major landmark of the Würzburg city centre. The foundation stone for the Old University was laid on 11 June 1582.More information
