Franconia's Favorites:



In Ansbach, Bayreuth and Kulmbach, residents celebrate their former masters to this day. With festivals and exhibits, they honor their Margrave Wilhelmine just as the “Wild Margrave”. A tour tracing the Hohenzollern heritage will take you to magnificent buildings such as the Margravial Opera House or the New Castle in Bayreuth, the Residenz in Ansbach or the Plassenburg Castle in Kulmbach. Erlangen too was located in the Margravate Brandenburg-Kulmbach-Bayreuth, as can be seen in the architecture of the baroque buildings of the university.
