"Experience a journey through time" is the invitation 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.
