.. is the motto of the Burgenstraße, which leads from Mannheim to Bayreuth and is one of the oldest holiday routes in Germany. About 60 castles and palaces can be admired along the 780-kilometre-long route. In addition, there are plenty of opportunities for an individual and relaxed stroll through the past, whether by car, camper van, bicycle or classic car.

Bamberg - 1000th anniversary of the death Emperor Henry II.

The fact that Bamberg is a UNESCO World Heritage Site is also thanks to him: Emperor Henry II (973-1024) founded the diocese, donated the cathedral and endowed Bamberg with great art treasures. To mark the 1000th anniversary of his death, the city is therefore honoring him with a themed year in 2024. Numerous exhibitions and events around the Domberg will remind visitors of how great Henry's influence was on the city.
