Juliusspital Würzburg

Over 440 years of history.
Welcome to the Juliusspital foundation, a social company which is keeping a hospital, homes for the elderly, palliative care units, a school of nursing, kindergarten, farms, forests and the wellknown wine estate Juliusspital - all this is us.

Inspired by many poor, sick and old people in his courtry, Prince-bishop Julius Echter established the Juliusspital foundation in 1576 with its non-profit social mission.
Ever since then, the foundation’s various social institiutions like hospital, care homes, hospice and palliative care are still dedicated to his mission.

For over 440 years, the foundation's social mission has motivated us to support its heritage and shape the future.

The “Fürstenbau”, a palatial building, designed by the architect Antonio Petrini built in the barock style with its ancient barrel cellar, its garden pavilion and the fountain statues of Jacob van der Auvera, turn the Juliusspital to an unique monument of art and culture at the heart of the city of Würzburg, the heart of the famous Franconian wine region.
