Old Town Rothenburg
#1 of 703 Sights & Landmarks in Franconia
Like other medieval cities, it has it all ... history, loving restored buildings and churches, cobblestones, beautiful scenery, city walls and fantastic views.
Allow for a leisurely one day's visit strolling through the cobblestone streets and viewing the quaint buildings and other landmark attractions some of which are really medieval.

Altes Rathaus Bamberg
#3 of 703 Sights & Landmarks in Franconia
The bridge affords spectacular views and the murals on the building are amazing.
It provides a great vantage point to see the city, as well as being a terrific site by itself.
The Basilica of the Vierzehnheiligen Staffelstein
#4 of 703 Sights & Landmarks in Franconia
Beautiful views overlooking the river main.
This place takes some getting to especially by public transport but is worth the effort as you see rural Germany and the view from outside the basilica is beautiful but nothing compared to what awaits you inside.
The Residenz Wurzburg
#5 of 703 Sights & Landmarks in Franconia
One of Germany’s largest and most ornate palaces and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, we visited the 18th-century Bishop's Residenz Palace, with ornate rooms, a huge fresco by Venetian artist Tiepolo and an elaborate...
What make this place unique are the art works – the painting and the sculpture blending in so perfectly, pleasing the eyes of the views.

Hofkirche Wurzburg

The only parallel I can draw is the gooseflesh inducing first view of the Taj Mahal.
Altstadt Nuremberg

#9 of 703 Sights & Landmarks in Franconia
But there are lovely walks all around the town, with some fantastic views of the many town gates.
Forward thinking in the 19th century, by Ludwig I proclaimed the city to be a heritage site to be preserved and protected.

one of the most elegant sites in the era.
Restaurant has a great view but overpriced.
Veste Coburg Coburg
#14 of 703 Sights & Landmarks in Franconia
Veste Coburg is everything we love about Germany: a hearty walk (or charming ride) followed by a gorgeous view, compelling history, and of course a wonderful café.
Worth a climb through the lovely parkland to the top of the hill ( ok you can drive, thats cheating), a visit to the castle is free, and you can see all round the outside of the castle with lovely views in all dir...
Rothenburg Town Hall (Rathaus) Rothenburg
#15 of 703 Sights & Landmarks in Franconia
If you want a great panoramic view of Rothernburg and its surrounds, a climb to the top of the Rathaus Tower is the best place to go.
I highly recommend climbing up to the tower (small admission fee) and enjoy the amazing views over Rothenburg and the surrounding country side!

St. Lorenz Church Nuremberg
#16 of 703 Sights & Landmarks in Franconia
Breathtaking church and donation is recommended to walk in and view this beauty.
I would say it is a must visit monument and landmark when you are in Nurnberg just take the time and go and see for yourself.

Germanisches Nationalmuseum Nuremberg
#17 of 703 Sights & Landmarks in Franconia
It is a vast, rambling site and I would definitely recommend checking the tour book - select themes of interest - and be disciplined.
we spent most of the day in the museum and still only completed a quarter of the collections on view.

They have an on-site brewery and you can have a beer at the cafe by the brewery house or buy some beers to bring home with you.
They have a collection of farm animals to view and a couple of very friendly cats!
Nuremberg Palace of Justice Nuremberg
#19 of 703 Sights & Landmarks in Franconia
Still, any time spent is a bonus, and the views and history that go along with any walking tour, is always an incredible experience, again, loved every second.
It provides a very comprehensive view of what took place prior, during and after WWII with a particular focus on the Nazi Party and the judicial procedures.

Gerlachschmiede Rothenburg
#21 of 703 Sights & Landmarks in Franconia
From the gate tower, climb up to the sentry walk, offering magnificent views through the arrow slits, looking down on angular courtyards and narrow roofs.
The best way to view this unique building is from up on the city walls which can be relatively quiet.

... gothic architecture tombs of queen and king the horseman the tombs of the bishop under the chapel everything here was breathtakingly beautiful and amazing so were the people even behind the cathedral lovely views

St. George Church Dinkelsbuhl

After climbing a narrow spiral staircase for several stories, you will have an opportunity to climb another set of stairs through the bells in the bell tower and then there is a 360 view from the balcony at the top.
Worth it if only for the views from the bell tower

#29 of 703 Sights & Landmarks in Franconia
Myself and a friend visited Nuremburg on a whim because we found cheap flights and were delighted to find such a beautiful landmark within the city.
At night, the spotlights towards the church, can obscure your view, but, fun to see, anyway.
