A city dating back to Celtic times, Worms is famed for its history and its wine

A city in the Rhineland-Palatinate, Worms is situated in the southwest of Germany on the Upper Rhine, a couple of hours drive southwest of Frankfurt. The city was founded before Roman times, and has been a major center since at least the 7th century. In German and protestant history it is known for the Edict of Worms, which declared the founder of the modern protestant church Martin Luther a heretic.
