Kulmbach – Bavaria
The Market Town Kulmbach is situated in the Bavarian region of Franconia.
A picturesque little town surrounded by forests and green hills.
The town is famous for Beer and Plassenburg Castle, which houses the largest tin soldier museum in the world.
Bratwürste, a famous sausage is also renowned around the world and you find this in a watered down in your local supermarket. ( nothing to do with the original).
It is a very quiet place, for some a little too quiet.
Kulmbach is a very motorbike friendly place, plenty of parking for motorbikes in the town centre.
Accommodation in “Gast Haus” Country Pub, are plentiful in the surrounding countryside and the prices are very reasonable.
If you are looking for a campsite there are more than enough camping opportunities all over the County.
Kulmbach is the host for the annual Motorbike Sternfahrt.
Every year more than 40.000 motorbike fanatics from all over Europe participating in this event.
Organisers are the Bavarian Ministry of the Interior and Upper Franconian Police Headquarters, together with the Kulmbach Brewery.

Mountains and Hills sloping away into green valleys following the Red Main River.
