Fodor's Review

Eighteen kilometers (11 miles) south of Bamberg in the village of Buttenheim is a little blue-and-white half-timber house where Löb Strauss was born—in great poverty—in 1829. Take the audio tour of the Levi-Strauss Museum and learn how Löb emigrated to the United States, changed his name to Levi, and became the first name in denim. The stonewashed color of the house's beams, by the way, is the original 17th-century color.
