Minstrels - Middle Ages - Knights

During your stay in the “secret capital of beer”, you can look forward to a wide variety of restaurants and pubs as well as a wide range of beers brewed here in the region according to a long tradition.

And since we are also located in the middle of the “Genussregion Oberfranken” (Upper Franconia gourmet region), there is no shortage of culinary delights.

Day 1:

14:00 to 18:00: Arrival and welcome drink

After a hearty breakfast, you will set off at 10:00 a.m. on a guided tour of the picturesque old town of Kulmbach.

Visit the traditional weekly market on Saturdays around the Art Nouveau fountain in front of the historic town hall. Here you should try the famous Kulmbach sausages straight from the grill.

The afternoon is at your leisure.
