About this product
- DescriptionThe upland region extending over the border country of the German federal states of Bavaria, Hesse, and Thuringia is showcased here for its exceptional scenery: extensive forested areas alternating with dark high moors, clear rivers, and empty plateaus with impressive mountains such as the Kreuzberg, the holy mountain of the Franconians. Numerous inns in the region are illustrated, which invite passers-by to drop in for a snack or a meal. Exploring castles and fortresses, fortified churches surrounded by defensive walls, and beautiful villages of half-timbered buildings such as Ostheim, Bischofsheim, and Fladungen, this guide offers interesting destinations for those in search of culture. The famous spa towns of Bad Kissingen, Bad Bruckenau, and Bad Bocklet offer fascinating alternative approaches to health. Highlighting all the delightful facets of the Bavarian Rhon, this travel companion also covers the history of the spas, the medieval poets of the region, the Rhon Biosphere Reserve, the scenery of the Grabfeld region, the Kreuzberg Monastery, and the local people's love of their native soil, which finds its expression in numerous customs and festivals.
