Alzenau in Lower Franconia might be passed up without a second glance, but those who pass it might be sorry once they figure out what they missed.
This area is teeming with nature and one look at all of the fruit trees around the town will prove that. These fruit trees make a great home for birds, some of which are rare like the little owl and the red backed shrike.
One thing that most tourists make sure to visit is the Alzenau Castle. They hold several different events there, including the Castle Games and concerts.
Want a place to sleep after having a few beers? Well, in the oldest inn in the city you can do both. After taking a tour of the brewery and doing some extensive taste testing you won’t have but a couple of flights of stairs to walk (or stumble) to get to your room. ;-)
If beer isn’t your beverage of choice, try wine from the area instead. There are tons of vineyards in this area, some of which welcome tourists.
After partaking in so much alcohol, you might need to plan a day to get it out of your system. Alzenau is part of the European Culture Ways, which has designated paths for cycling and hiking set aside as being very special and important.
Interested in green living? Well, in Alzenau there is a special project showing how solar energy can be used. The Solarparcours is how the sun’s energy can help to keep the area — in fact, the whole globe — green. There aren’t any other extensive projects like this in Germany (other than in Freiburg), so see it when you are here.
What about events? Well, this city hosts a ton of different concerts throughout the year. The most famous concerts are the ones at the castle, but there is a Christmas Rock Concert, a Concert by Candlelight, an Orchestra Concert on Palm Sunday and more. The place for music must be this cozy town in Bavaria.
