Bruecke und Mainzusammenfluss

Our tip: Bicycle Tour to the “Mainzusammenfluss”

Only a few kilometres away from the town centre you can observe how two rivers become one. The source of the White Main lies in the Fichtelgebirge, the source of the Red Main in Franconian Switzerland. At Steinenhausen Castle, the two rivers unite to an important river, which travels almost 600 kilometres until it flows into the Rhine, near Mainz. The place is easily accessible by bike and simply perfect for having a little picnic with friends!

For body and soul

Kulmbach also offers culinary highlights, as the town is one of the 100 pleasure locations of Bavaria. The diverse regional specialities of Franconian cuisine and the popular Kulmbach beer can be tasted in the many traditional retaurants in the town centre or at the annual Kulmbach Beer Week..
