"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 770-kilometre-long route. There is also a wealth of events to experience - from medieval markets to castle concerts.
