Politically, the Ansbach District does not include the actual urban district of Ansbach, but it still has the largest surface area of any district in Bavaria.
If you pay a visit to the northern half of the district, you may be surprised to find most of its gently hilled countryside is virtually unspoiled. This is the Nature Park Frankenhöhe, 1,100 square kilometers of unadulterated, sun-rich natural environs.

A trip to Ornbau means a stop at the scenic Altmühl Bridge. You must see the St. Peter and Paul Romanesque Church in automobile-free Rothenburg ob der Tauber. And no visit is complete without hearing the Boys Choir in Windsbach, among the world’s most acclaimed vocal groups since 1946.
