Sleeping like knights and noblemen
Traveling through the lovely landscape of Franconian Switzerland between Bayreuth, Bamberg and Nuremberg you feel a desire to stay longer and experience the area more intensively. The nine-story castle sits atop a massive rocky promontory; from there, visitors have an unimpeded view in all directions. Far below is the Ailsbach valley with its bizarre rock formations.
