With the page turned horizontally, the view is south up the River Main along the Kranenkai, with a landing stage in the foreground, as Cecilia Powell has noted.1 The tall, plain Pleichertor frames the view on the left, with lightly indicated towers in central Würzburg beyond; the latter are shown in more detail in a similar view from a little further north on folio 81 recto opposite (D30614; Turner Bequest CCCIII 80).
To the south-west, beyond the Alte Mainbrücke, the extensive hilltop Marienberg fortress is shown; it features in numerous adjacent drawings. Below to its right are the twin spires of the Schottenkirche, with the Baroque spire of the Deutschhauskirche to their left.
