Rathaus

Reviewed By SuandChris - Bay of Plenty Region, New Zealand

An amazing building on a small island in a river. The majority of the building is beautifully decorated stone and masonry with a smaller wooden appendage which appears to hang over the river and rests on the base of the island which is cleverly constructed like the prow of a ship. Two stone arches link the island, however the beauty of the building is the external decoration.

Erlebnispark Schloss Thurn

Lovely amusementpark close to Nuremberg. Enjoy rollercoaster, shows & good restaurants in Schloss Thurn.

Reviewed By Charly_R2011 - Doha, Qatar

We went with the whole family starting with grandparents over aunts and uncles down to the grandkids and cousins. The entrance fee is reasonable cause ALL rides and shows are inclusive! The rides are fun and not too wild some a bit retro!! Even grandma went on the family rollercoaster. The park is in the beautiful castlegrounds and well looked after. U feel it is family run business and love is put into it, they not trying to rip u off. The knight and western show is fun - audience is asked to join in with booing the badies. There are also a few animals to look at. Food, icecreams, drinks etc is also reasonable. The only
disadvantage, all is in German. however if you are a bit adventures and need a family day out.. Try it out. We all got on very well!! Loved it and our children between 6 and 11 enjoyed it!!

Wallfahrtskirche Heilig Kreuz

Reviewed By DirkulesMVP - Germany

Früher fanden täglich bis zu 23 Wallfahrten ihr Ziel auf den Kreuzberg und zum anschließenden Besuch der im Jahr 1463 erbauten gotischen Kirche . An der Außenseite der Kirche befinden sich die Kreuzwegstationen, diese sind außerhalb der Wallfahrten mit hölzernen Läden verdeckt. .
.
Von Mai bis September findet jeden Dienstag um 18:30 Uhr ein Gottesdienst in der Kreuzberg Kirche statt. Ein Besuch ist lohnend und lässt sich gut mit einer anschließenden Stärkung auf einen der nahe gelegenen Keller verbinden.

Levi Strauss Birthplace Museum

Reviewed By drjobec - Nuremberg, Germany

I was expecting much more from the museum. Right now, one spends the time practically just listening to the audio guide and that's it. There ins't practically anything in the building itself, or at least anything that interesting. Maybe just spend 15 minutes Reading the stuff somewhere online and save your time. I have to admit, that the entry was almost next to nothing: <3e.

Wildpark Hundshaupten

Reviewed By Rudolf W - Forchheim, Germany

There's no exotic animals in the Wildpark, only local species and domestic animals. Feeding small deer and boar is great fun for children. Starting Easter there is a falcon display on Sundays depending on weather, there is a local style beer garden as well. Open 0900 - 1800 in Summer, December closed.

Sankt Martin

Reviewed By blauemadeleine - Erlangen, Germany

976 this church was gifted to the bishopric of Würzburg by Otto I.
Only foundations of the romanic walls have survived, oround 1200 a cross shaped church in late romanic style was erected.
Some parts of this eg the krypt, are still existant. Todays shape stems from the fourteenth century.
The staple was first mentioned in 1406, todays appearance is from 1670.
A good impression of the (quite remarkable) works of art can be gained on the website

btw the steeple rocks (slightly) when all the bells ring. I once had the opportunity to visit the inside and the organist said that he could actually detect the movement from his seat at the organ.

Planetenwanderweg Feuerstein Ebermannstadt

Reviewed By Rudolf W - Forchheim, Germany

Der Flugplatz Feuerstein besteht seit 1952, und ist sehr schön oberhalb von Ebermannstadt und Forchheim gelegen. Die Aussicht über das Regnitztal und nach Westen allgemein ist sehr schön, besonders die Sonnenuntergänge bei schönem Wetter. Bei Flugbetrieb, vor allem an den Wochenenden, starten und landen Segel- und Motorflugzeuge im Minutenabstand. Nach dem letzten Pächterwechsel ist auch die Gaststätte (mit einigen Außenplätzen) wieder zu empfehlen. Vom Flugplatz aus gibt's etliche Wanderwege in die Umgebung, fast alle kann man auch mit dem MTB befahren, ohne daß sich jemand aufregt. Die Webseite des Flugplatzes finden Sie unter seiner Kennung: www.edqe.de
