Juliusspital (Julius Hospital), located in Würzburg was founded by Julius Echter from Mespelbrunn in 1576 on the ground of a Jewish cemetery with the endowment of the abandoned monastery of Heiligenthal. It continues to function as a hospital but is particularly notable for being, at 170 hectares in the Franconian wine region, the second largest wine estate in Germany and the biggest individual German wine grower.
