Weißenburg in Bayern Travel Guide: 11 reviews and 31 photos


Weißenburg is in the Franken (Franconia) region of Bavaria.

It?s about an hour northwest of Ingolstadt. South of Nürnberg, and in the Altmühltal area.

some more

The town itself is small and perfectly formed. It is also perfectly preserved, having completely escaped war damage.

I was there on Easter Sunday for an after lunch wander, to help the digestion deal with a delicious schweinebraten, with 2 kinds of dumpling (potato and bread) 2 kinds of sauerkraut (red and white) plus potato salad! Just a wee snack.

It was sunny, warm and sleepy-quiet. Ideal.

and to finish...

I had 2 top class tour guides, who both had gone to high school there. They know the little gasse, bakeries and ice cream shops like the backs of their hands. Also ideal.

The only slight downside was that lots of things (but not all) were closed for Easter.

From what I observed (all the plaques on important buildings in German only) and was told, it is not visited by foreign tourists and not much by German tourists. So, an undiscovered treasure.
