Prichsenstadt is in Franconia (or Franken in German), Northern Bavaria and is the 6th largest of the 13 wine producing areas of Germany and the only wine producing region in Bavaria. The area has a wonderful sunny, warm and dry climate suitable for vine growing, and is steeped in history and tradition. Tourism and agriculture, particularly viticulture, are the primary industries in the area.
There is plenty to do nearby and in the region, explore Franconia, the wine is a huge attraction to the area, there is a reason why the Germans keep the good stuff to themselves! Prichsenstadt is at the start of the “Romantische Straße” (Romantic Road), Germany's most popular holiday route, passing through many historic, beautiful medieval towns including Rothenburg, Dinkelsbühl, Nördlingen, ending in Füssen and the majestic Alps.
The Franconian 'Bocksbeutel Straße' is another tourist route through the area (Bocksbeutel is the bottle shape synonymous with Franconian wine). The Bocksbeutel Straße is a wine trail that runs through all the major wine producing villages and towns of which Prichsenstadt is one. Prichsenstadt is close to many beautiful ancient towns such as Rothenburg ob der Tauber, Bamberg, Nürnberg and Würzburg to name just a few. Bamberg Town and the Würzburg Residence are both UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
Prichsenstadt itself is a uniquely preserved medieval town retaining over 70% of the town walls, watchtowers, moat and town gate, it really is like staying in your own medieval castle. The town, which in reality is smaller than some of the surrounding villages, has all you will need.
Surrounded by open vineyards and beautiful peaceful countryside Prichsenstadt offers a perfect getaway, and the chance for a genuine Bavarian experience. Even though rural and quiet the town is still very much a working and thriving community with six winemakers, all happy for you to sample their wares and five cosy traditional Franconian restaurants all serving a delectable range of seasonal Franconian Cuisine.
