Münchberg is an Upper Franconian town that’s known in Germany as the “Textile Town of Bavaria.” To be honest, it needs to be known for “oh so much more.”
There are many (LOTS) of historical old buildings and pretty streets throughout Münchberg’s twenty-four local municipalities; although, many are just rural residential hamlets. Take your time wandering about, you’ll find all kinds of stuff to see.
For example, Münchberg’s Pedestrian District (known as Lindenstraße). You’ll find it to be a tree-lined street separated by a brook, framed with flowers, park benches, and little shops. To cross, just walk over the little bridges that link the two sides of the street.
In the City Park there are many sculptures created by local artists. Any place that takes this much pride in itself, is simply fantastic.
Princess Mathilde Karoline von Bayern (a 19th century Bavarian princess) knew how lovely Münchberg was when she stayed here back in the 1830’s. She stayed at the historical Gasthof Bayerischerhof; and you can, too. The hotel is lovely and befitting of royalty but, no title is necessary to stay the night.
You might need to stay the night because you got lots to see around here. Make a trip over to the Evangelical Church of Sts. Peter and Paul (1860’s), a Parsonage Building that was built in the 1560’s, and the town’s City Hall is neatly decorated with many flowerboxes.
Don’t skip out of town before you see the Cemetery Church, which was put here way back in the 16th century. It did have to be rebuilt in 1745 and that’s the church you see today.
One of the newer sites in Münchberg is the Holy Family Catholic Church, which was built over a hundred years ago. Funny, to consider something that old as the “new kid on the block.”
