Fodor's Review

Founded in 1576 by Prince-Bishop Julius Echter as a foundation for the poor, the elderly, and the sick, this enormous edifice now houses a hospital and the second largest wine estate in Germany. Wander through the hospital park and grounds, then do a wine tasting, which includes six half-glasses of wine from the vineyards. All profits from the Vinothek and the neighboring restaurant are used to fund the foundation.
