Whenever we are at home and not on a larger travel we use to go there to enjoy one or two performances. So we did on the 24th of July with big expectation as the Blues Brother story was on the program for the second year among others not less interesting performances.
The Luisenburg is located close to the town of Wunsiedel in the Fichtelgebirge, the most north-easterly region of the Upper Franconia in the state of Bavaria.
Some more Information about the history of Wunsiedel copied and translated from the internet:
Wunsiedel is located in the four-country region >Bavaria< >Thuringia< >Saxony< and >Bohemia<
Between 1285 and 1415 acquired the viscount of Nuremberg, the Hohenzollern, the interior of the Fichtelgebirge horseshoe, which is the western part of the Cheb Reich. Like the other parts of the dominion of the Hohenzollerns in today's Upper and Central Franconia, these new areas have been divided for administrative purposes.
The acquired castles were used for administrative purposes with noble bailiffs: Wunsiedel Castle, Castle Hohenberg, Castle Rudolphstein with the city Weißenstadt, Castle Kirchenlamitz Epprechtstein and the Castle Thierstein Selb.
Same ranking officers, each responsible for their area, sat on the castles in the respective localities. Only the tax and financial management has been applied uniformly to the entire region. The "Castner" as chief financial officer was based in the City of Wunsiedel.
Wunsiedel is approx. 140km north-east of Nürmberg and can be easily reached by car. Take Autobahn A9 Nürmberg Berlin, outlet Bad Berneck, than follow the B303 via Bischofgrün - Tostau from there you have to leave the B303 and take the road to the left 12km to Wunsiedel-Luisenburg
The Luisenburg rock labyrinth is Europe's largest rock labyrinth and National geotope - worth to immerse yourself into a sea of fascinating gigantic granite rock formations.
Huge boulders surrounded by caves and canyons are unique of this landscape located to determine the midst of the Fichtelgebirge.
I did a walk in the footsteps of Queen Luise (August 1836) through narrow canyons and fall into the spell of these over 300 million year old granite rock formations for the second time.
It's also worth to join a guided tour, it takes about 2 hours. But you can easily explore it by yourself a guide brochure available at the gate will be of some help.
- In a nutshell:The Fichtelgebirge is one of the most beautiful mountain ranges of Germany
