The capital of the Upper Palatinate looks back on a long history that you can see and feel at every turn. Built on the foundation walls of an ancient Roman camp on the banks of the Danube, remains of the ancient fortifications can still be found throughout the city centre. But Regensburg's builders were not idle in the Middle Ages either, creating masterpieces of the architecture of the time such as the Stone Bridge or Regensburg Cathedral, home of the Regensburg Cathedral Boys' Choir. However, the cityscape of the UNESCO World Heritage city is dominated by patrician houses and dynasty towers. As you can see, Regensburg is the perfect destination for one or more day trips by train.

Alsace feeling - and only a train ride away in beautiful Bamberg! In Bamberg's old town, you can marvel at the old town hall and the breathtaking Domplatz (cathedral square). Here, Bamberg's imperial cathedral of St. Peter and St. George rises majestically with its four towers. The little Venice district or the numerous pubs that invite you to linger with hearty dishes and traditional drinks are also worth a visit! Be sure to take a stroll along the banks of the Regnitz, which captivates with its charming half-timbered houses.

It was not for nothing that Ludwig I of Bavaria chose Aschaffenburg as his royal summer residence: the romantic alleys in the old town, the Aschaffenburg Main, the mild climate: just a few of the advantages of the Franconian metropolis. So Aschaffenburg is not only a summer residence for kings, but also an attractive destination for culture and nature lovers. Come and see for yourself!

Perfect for a city break: According to WirtschaftsWoche, Würzburg is one of the most liveable cities in Germany. Besides the Old Main Bridge (which you should definitely pay a visit to if you are interested in "Brückenschoppen", i.e. tasting the traditional Franconian wine), a visit to the old university town is also worthwhile because of the historical sights: The town hall is a complex of buildings from several eras - the Grafeneckart in particular is a great sight! Another highlight is, for example, the mirrored Emperor's Hall in the Würzburg Residence: thanks to the "most perfect spatial work of art of the Rococo period", the Residence is part of the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage.
