Strullendorf — Three Breweries Around A Medieval Castle

Sure, you might think me a bit silly with all the jokes I make about Bavaria and German beer. But, really, Bavaria makes it easy for me — especially when you find three (yes, THREE) breweries in one small town, like I did in Strullendorf.

It’s as if everything else is secondary to this golden beverage that calls my name. But, I will not (not, not) pick up a brew until I’ve shown you all around Strullendorf.

That can be my reward for being a good host. ;-)

Yes, I jest — but, I’m very serious when I say you’ll enjoy Strullendorf.

You got a choice to either start your sightseeing adventure with either the historical or the natural side of the town.

For those of you who take the historical theme first, you’ll find Bronze and Iron Age grave mounds in the village of Geisfeld (one of the 8 villages that ARE Strullendorf), and the foundations of an 8th century church in Amlingstadt.

And a historical tour is never complete in Germany without a castle, so a visit to Schloss Wernsdorf is in order. While the original castle from the Middle Ages was used as a sign of power, it also housed refugees after World War II and is now a musical and art culture center (learn to play an instrument, anyone?)

To enjoy Strullendorf’s natural beauty, you’ll want to come to the villages of Mistendorf and Zeegendorf. Both of them lie within the Naturpark Fränkische Schweiz, or Franconian Switzerland, which is a 2,000+ square kilometer area with all sorts of rock formations and caves.

It’s all part of the Franconian Jura, which is part of Franconia.

Blah, blah, blah, all you need to know is the countryside is enough to make the most talkative person shut up for a while. ;-)

FYI, Mistendorf does have a pilgrimage chapel, in case you’re interested.

The outdoorsy stuff in Strullendorf doesn’t end there. How about doing some fishing or mountainbiking, too? There’s even a place to play some beach volleyball.

Beaches?

Doesn’t Strullendorf sound spectacular? Yeah, it sure does. Can I have my beer now? ;-)
