Staying in Wuerzburg - Suggested short day-trip

We are traveling to Wuerzburg in early Dec to catch a river cruise tour. We have planned a full day to visit Wuerzburg - 1/2 day on our own, and 1/2 day with the tour company. We have an additional day in Wuerzburg which we have nothing planned . Any suggestions of near-by town(s) we should considering visiting for a day-trip? Or any additional activities/sightseeing we should consider doing in Wuerzburg?

your suggestions are most appreciated!

We plan two days for Würzburg: one day for the Residenz and one for the Festung (fortress) across the river with its two good museums. The days are very short in December. We like the long evenings for the Christmas Market.

Bamberg or Rothenburg can be visited by daytrip. Bamberg is about an hour by train and Rothenburg ob der Tauber is a bit more than an hour.

There are two villages south of Würzburg that are very nice: Marktbreit and Ochsenfurt about 20 minutes by train. These might be pretty quiet in December.

A little jewel 6km from Wuerzburg is the town and Residenz (little palace) of Veitshoecheim. You can walk there along the Main river, or take the train (and proably also a bus, but I have never tried that).

Take a look at en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Veitsh%C3%B6chheim
