In the "high north" of Bavaria, embedded between the Franconian Forest, the Fichtel Mountains and Franconian Switzerland. The emblem of the old margrave town is one of the most significant Renaissance buildings in Germany – Plassenburg Castle. For more than 850 years, it has towered above the picturesque old town. Enjoy the variety of museums: the largest museum of pewter figures in the world with 300,000 individual figures, which are exhibited in 150 dioramas; the Upper Main Museum of Rural Life with the Ebstorf Map; and the Frederick the Great Military Museum. Take the time to witness the Kulmbach way of life up close, and you will discover that Kulmbach is a town full of optimism and joie de vivre.
