You're mid December in Selb in the Fichtelgebirge region?
It will get dark around 5pm and the Fichtelgebirge is also a "Schneeloch" (a snow whole as we call it - a place where it likes to snow).
http://www.selb.de
http://www.fichtelgebirge.de

There are some interesting castle ruins on the hills in this region. Nice and romantic - but not really something for this time of the year.

The most intersesting castles in towns are
- Burg Hohenberg (~ 15 km south-east of Selb)
http://www.burghohenberg.de/
(click on Ansichten and Fotogalerie)
- Imperial Castle in Cheb/Eger (~ 30 km south-east of Selb)

If you just want to go to Frankfurt for the big city life and not something else (airport etc.) I would rather recommend to go to Prague (much closer (~200 km) and cheaper). Or to Berlin which is also no more distant than Frankfurt.

For the typical Bavarian/Franconian experience go to the even closer cities of Bamberg (the real beer capital of Germany) and Nuremberg with its famous Christmas Market.

Hey,

when you're in Selb you can visit the factory shop of Rosenthal.
Sometimes you can find really nice glasses or cups there - if you'll buy them in a regular shop this items are very expensive.

But one question - what are you doing in Selb? Before i visited a customer at that place i had never noticed it ( only as an exit at the motorway)

Greetings from Berlin

by Karin1S

Sorry for the belated answer... in the beginning of December i guess it will be very cold and rainy. Sometimes you'll find snow (Selb is in Bavaria) I guess it could be under 0 degrees but it could be also 10 or more degrees .. . (but never 20 or more) :-)

Have a successful travel

Travel Tips for Bamberg

Tourist Inforamtion Center

by Travelchili

It is a good place to start you trip around the town - they have a lot of information about the town and you can also get a great tour guide to take you around. Usually I don't go around with a tour guide, but this time I did and I had a wonderful experience. The tourist information is situated at Geyersworthstr. 3 and their web-page is www.bamberg.info

Domplatz

by iandsmith

One of the focal points of historical Bamberg is the Domplatz. It is an inspiring group fo buildings in a prominent location, one of the more impressive town squares you will visit. It has the unusual distinction of sloping at an awkward angle and is surrounded by a series of grandiose historical buildings.
From the main commercial part of Bamberg you have to ascend some stairs (pic 5). If you start at the 13th century Kaiserdom itself (pic 4), then going clockwise from there is the Alte Residenz, next to that is the Reiche Tor, and behind that is the Alte Hofhaltung, the old 15th century episcopal palace. Across the road from that is the Neue Residenz, the enormous 18th century L-shaped Baroque palace, and behind that are some picturesque views of the city center across the north east (pic 3). I just loved the curvature of some of the tiled roofs.

Haus Zum Saal

by Cristian_Uluru

Walking along Lange Strasse you can find many shops (dresses, shoes ...) located in fantastic Baroque palace. Haus Zum Saal is one of these: it has got a simple red facade with a fantastic Baroque gateway as you can see from the photo.

something special for sure

by richiecdisc about Spezialkeller

I have always enjoyed the beers at the Brauerei Spezial and since it right across the street from Fassla Brauerei where I normally stay, I’ve been in there a fair amount. So, I was excited to finally get to their beer garden on top of Stephansburg. It is a part of town that locals flock to in the summer to escape the summer heat. There’s always a breeze blowing up there. Even better are the views. You can get a great panorama of the magnificent architecture of Bamberg while enjoying their house brews. There are two areas, one with waitress service and one where you can serve yourself. You just go up to the food window and order your meal and then proceed to the beer window and grab a nice mug of their lightly smoked beer. We just had some cold local meats to stay cool and enjoyed the great views

Pfarrkirche St Martin

by leics

This huge Baroque church is worth popping inside (on your way to or from the Bergstadt, perhaps) just to see its trompe l'oeil dome.

The church dates from 1693 and the trompe l'oeil, although small, is rather good (the church has no dome at all really!). There's also an early 14th century Pieta on the right of the altar.
