The City of Kulmbach is located at the confluence of the Red Main River and the White Main River and is considered the “secret capital of beer.” The Plassenburg Castle towers above the city and is its highly visible symbol.
Plassenburg: Former regional fortress and one of the most impressive Renaissance buildings in all of Germany; houses three museums, including the German pewter figure museum.
Bavarian Brewery Museum: Outstanding exhibits on the history of beer making. At the core is a museum brewery made out of glass.
Historical Old Town and Old City Fortifications: Kulmbach was first mentioned in a document in 1035 AD. A stroll through the picturesque streets and alleys is a memorable way to experience the long history of the city.
