You will meet bears, polar foxes, wolves, elks, lynxes, wild cats, birds of prey and many other animals. The interaction of the individual animal species in their different habitats is impressively conveyed. "Back to nature" is the motto.
CASTLES & PALACES
The vacation landscape "Liebliches Taubertal" from Rothenburg ob der Tauber to Freudenberg am Main is a region rich in culture. Wilhelm Heinrich Riehl already noted during his hike in 1865: "A walk through the Tauber Valley is a walk through German history, is a walk through the old empire". This statement is still valid today. In almost every town, municipality or village you will come across a castle, a palace, a monastery or a garden worth seeing. This can be traced back to the former small states, when counts, princes or noblemen - according to their importance - created the cultural sights that are popularly visited today. Worth seeing are for example the residence castle Bad Mergentheim, the castle Weikersheim and the castle Wertheim as the largest castle complex in Europe.
MONASTERIES & CHURCHES
From a social point of view, religion can be understood as a perspective on life and the world. In churches and monasteries, this perspective takes concrete form in architecture and design. Explore the monasteries & churches of the region, for example the Schlosskirche Bad Mergentheim, the Herrgottskirche in Creglingen, the Stuppacher Madonna or the Bronnbach Monastery.
THEATER, CINEMA & CONCERT
How about a pleasant evening at the cinema or an open-air theater or concert. The region offers a variety of open air events during the summer months. No matter if you go to the open air cinema in the nearby game park or to the cultural opera in the castle courtyard in Weikersheim.
