It would be silly to think that one place, one destination, one town could have everything (and anything) that a visitor could ask for. That is, unless, you’re talking about the town of Teublitz in the Upper Palatinate, a right between Schwandorf and Regensburg.
Teublitz has castle ruins, wine festivals (that’s plural, so there’s more than one), and a bunch of historic old churches too boot. Add in a trip to the Nature Park Höllohe and you’ve got yourself a good time.
My tale of Teublitz doesn’t end here — no, what fun is that? Wouldn’t you like to hear more about what I just mentioned? I know you would…

Where do we start? A question often asked when arriving in some small German town or village, no doubt. I’ll take the churches, as they’re tucked neatly away in the pretty Upper Palatinate countryside.
The Haferbründl Premberg (Premberg is one of Teublitz’s four divisions) has been around since the 19th century, and is much older than the Pfarrkirche St. Michael Katzdorf (yes, another division) which looks older than it really is. It was built only as far back as the 1950’s, BTW.
It’s the Pfarrkirche Herz-Jesu Teublitz that’s probably the most active of all of the town’s churches. Besides still holding church services, it’s the venue for many organ concerts and the Bruderschaftsfest in mid-September.
Funny, that’s right before and after the two wine festivals.
In case you didn’t catch that, there’s one Wine Festival in the beginning of September, and another at the end of September. For you vinophiles, I would say that this is the month you should be here, huh?
If you’d rather be shopping, early December is perfect for you since that’s when Teublitz holds its Weihnachtsmarkt — or Christmas Market.
I’ll take more of the historical, if you please. The Stadtpark has 13th century castle ruins, where a picnic or leisurely stroll would be idyllic. Then again, a visit to the late 18th century Schloss Teublitz is also quite lovely.
When a less urban (read: the countryside) setting will do, hiking or cycling around the Nature Park Höllohe is just right place to go.
Didn’t I tell you Teublitz had everything? I think I’ll be here for a while. See you next time. ;-)
