Somewhat off the beaten track of the tourist who visits Germany, Franconia (German “Franken”) is a relatively small area of northern Bavaria. This book, combining travel with cultural history, explores major cities such as Bayreuth, Nürnberg, Bamberg, and Würzburg, as well as tiny towns most visitors might never see. We follow the Main River’s course; we climb up to impressive fortresses and descend into caverns. Side excursions explore regional history. We examine unforgettable works of art and architecture and note many famous people associated with Franconia, from the well known to Levi Strauss (he gave us our “levis” or jeans) or Johann Lahner, to whom we owe our wieners. And there is far more to German cuisine than sausages and beer! Travelers familiar with Franconia will enjoy reliving their experiences, while those who have never been are encouraged to discover this area for themselves. “Auf nach Franken!”
