Franconia and the German Danube Feature


Top Reasons to Go to Franconia and the Danube

Bamberg’s Altstadt: This one isn't just for the tourists. Bamberg may be a UNESCO World Heritage Site, but it's also a vibrant town living very much in the present.

Vierzehnheiligen: Just north of Bamberg, this church’s swirling rococo decoration earned it the nickname "God's Ballroom."

Nürnberg’s Kaiserburg: Holy Roman emperors once resided in the vast complex of this imperial castle, which has fabulous views over the entire city.

Steinerne Brücke in Regensburg: This 12th-century Stone Bridge was considered an amazing feat of engineering in its time.

An organ concert in Passau: You can listen to the mighty sound the 17,774 pipes of Dom St. Stephan’s organ create at weekday concerts.
