Franconia

17 May 2022

6 days from £2,150pp

Franconia is perhaps the Bavarian region less travelled. Nestled amongst beautiful vineyards, river valleys, forests and hills, it is here that we explore the inspiring limewood statuary of Tilman Riemenschneider. The incomparable beauty of Bamberg provides a magnificent base for our art, architectural and historical explorations.
  • Delve into the history, landscape, and art of all forms in Franconia, heir to the mediaeval Kingdom of the Francs
  • Enjoy a private visit to the home of the Prince of Schönborn and the Palace Weissenstein at Pommersfelden
  • Revel in a visit to the magnificent Cathedral of Bamberg, combining Romanesque and Gothic elements, and embellished with fine sculpture
  • Visit Rothenburg-ob-der-Tauber, perfectly preserved with its late mediaeval town walls and half-timbered houses 
     
Franconia — modern Bavaria’s northern half — is home to many of Germany’s greatest mediaeval and Renaissance treasures. Its idyllic landscape of rolling hills and winding rivers is packed with proud towns and castles, monasteries and pilgrimage sites, from romantic Rothenburg and Bamberg’s majestic 13th-century cathedral to the exquisite rococo jewel at Vierzehnheiligen. From this region came some of Germany’s most significant artists, among them Albrecht Dürer, the most complete personification of Renaissance Man north of the Alps, and the sculptors Veit Stoss and Tilman Riemenschneider, whose statues and reliefs are stunning virtuoso masterpieces.
