Journey Through Franconia (Journey Through series)

Ulrike Ratay

Franconia, the stretch of Germany between the Spessart and the Fichtelgebirge, is captured in this striking guide. Rich in scenery from the raw climes of low mountains to the idyllic Fränkische Schweiz, from the gentle curves of the River Main to the glittering lakes of the Fränkisches Seenland, and from the dense forest of the Steigerwald to the open fields of the Ochsenfurter Gau, the region is showcased here for its diverse landscape as well as its artistic and cultural monuments, telling of Franconia's turbulent past. Its impressive churches are investigated along with its magnificent pilgrimage chapels, such as those at Vierzehnheiligen and Gößweinstein, depicting the legacy of a people deeply rooted in religion. The free cities of Nuremberg, Rothenburg ob der Tauber, and many others are portrayed, still effusing a sense of civic pride through its countless castles and palaces, illustrating a thirst for representation and power. The margravial residences of Ansbach and Bayreuth, medieval strongholds on the peaks of the Fränkische Schweiz, and the Schönborn dynasty’s palace in Pommersfelden also grace this guide. Showcasing Franconia in all its glorious variety, this handbook also contains additional features on its culinary delights, traditional festivals, artists and architects, and the intriguing case of Kaspar Hauser.

Franconia and Sugar Hill (Images of America)

Arthur F. March Jr.

Although geographically contiguous and linked by their shared industries of early iron works and latertourism, Franconia and Sugar Hill are unique areas with distinct personalities that have developed over the years. The discovery of rich deposits of iron ore in Sugar Hill in the late 1700s and the establishment of iron works in Franconia brought the two areas together in a working partnership. The coming of the railroads brought tourism into both communities, with Franconia supplying the scenery with its mountains and far-famed Franconia Notch, and Sugar Hill rounding out the scenery with a generous offering of grand summer hotels. The sharing of the summer tourist industry was greatlybroadened by the development of skiing in the early part of the present century. Again, Franconia provided the major terrain and Sugar Hill provided many of the guest accommodations, including the first formal ski school at the prestigious Peckett�s Inn. With all of its attributes, the area has attracted a number of notables, including movie star Bette Davis.

The Pleasures of Franconia

David B. Dickens

Somewhat off the beaten track of the tourist who visits Germany, Franconia (German “Franken”) is a relatively small area of northern Bavaria. This book, combining travel with cultural history, explores major cities such as Bayreuth, Nürnberg, Bamberg, and Würzburg, as well as tiny towns most visitors might never see. We follow the Main River’s course; we climb up to impressive fortresses and descend into caverns. Side excursions explore regional history. We examine unforgettable works of art and architecture and note many famous people associated with Franconia, from the well known to Levi Strauss (he gave us our “levis” or jeans) or Johann Lahner, to whom we owe our wieners. And there is far more to German cuisine than sausages and beer! Travelers familiar with Franconia will enjoy reliving their experiences, while those who have never been are encouraged to discover this area for themselves. “Auf nach Franken!”
