Are jeans American? No, sirree, this popular garment has its roots in Upper Franconia. The inventor, Levi Strauss, was actually from Buttenheim near Bamberg. The house in which he was born has since become a museum. While the basement of the former family home focuses on the biography of the inventor of jeans and the life of Jewish inhabitants in Franconia in the 19th century, the first floor is dedicated to the famous trousers and the development of the jeans industry. If you would like a souvenir after the tour, the museum shop will definitely have something you’ll enjoy. It offers small keepsakes, specialist literature and, of course, jeans – even on Sundays and bank holidays. The best thing is that presenting your train ticket means you receive an entry discount.

News, prices and opening hours are available here.
