Fürth lies neatly sandwiched between historic Erlangen and the wonders of Nuremberg in the state of Bavaria (Bayern). Rivers such as the Pegnitz, Rednitz, and Regnitz flow along its shores bringing you beautiful vistas and venues for relaxation.
In the Burgfarmbach district of Fürth, you’ll find the old castle that now houses the Municipal Archives, Museum, and Library. Here’s your chance to enjoy medieval German art that make for a wonderful aesthetic experience.
A few minutes away from the city, is the town of Cadolzburg with its impressive 16th century castle. An impressive specimen of Gothic architecture, you will certainly admire the watch tower. A similar Gothic marvel is the St. Michael’s Church famous for its tabernacle. You’ll find this 14th century wonder in the historic Marketplace.
In Königsstraße, you have enough reason to linger. The Municipal Theater, the Stadtpark that runs to the Pegnitz River, and the Church of the Resurrection located here give you enough variety and Greco-Roman architectural splendor to gaze at.
The Town Hall is another impressive structure here, with its landmark tower.
A walk along the Hornschuch-Promenade will give you an idea of the good times in history when houses where works of art rather than mere means of accommodation. Admire the restored glory of the Gründerzeit period displayed in the manor houses along the promenade.
Seasonal celebrations such as the Oktoberfest and other arts festivals reveal the vibrant nature of the local culture which you can partake of unapologetically.
St. Michael’s Fair is a local tradition celebrating the Franconian harvest, going back 800 years in history! Here’s your chance to be a part of the thousands who throng the streets of Fürth in mid-October to enjoy this event that goes on for two weeks. :-)
