From Kaiserburg Castle through Franconian Switzerland to World Heritage Site
What can stand more for the Castle Road than the starting point of the fourth tour, Nuremberg with the Kaiserburg? When visiting the famous landmark, not only the imposing castle complex is worth seeing, but also the permanent exhibition "Kaiser - Reich - Stadt. The Emperor's Castle Nuremberg". The route continues to Lauf an der Pegnitz, also with an imperial castle, and in a wide arc through Franconian Switzerland, which is nestled between the castle road lighthouses of Nuremberg, Bamberg and Bayreuth. Pottenstein and Rabenstein Castle in particular offer everything that makes this landscape so attractive: caves, bizarre rock formations and, last but not least, castles at dizzying heights. After the Franconian Switzerland, the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Bamberg is reached, whose Altenburg is the connecting point to the Castle Road.
