The landmark of Allersberg is its Gate Tower, the rest of the old city wall. The tower was used as a school, when the tower guards where teacher at the same time. It also was used as the place for the public market scales, and part of it was the so called "Allersberger Loch", the local jail. Today there are exhibitions of local artists and theater performances.
The heart of town is the market square, where you still can find shops, pubs and of course the town hall. At christmas time, lit swags with nice ornaments hang across the street.
The Gilardi House was built between 1723/28 by Jakob Gilardi. He was the founder of a wire factory, which is the oldest, still existing one, in Germany. Noteworthy is the cambered portal with the Gilardis court of arms.
Favorite thing: Far beyond town limits, Allersberg is known to celebrate a great carnival parade in February/March. Many carnival clubs of the northern part of Bavaria join a funny parade of disguised jesters. Bakerys offer fresh 'Krapfen' which is a kind of a donut, filled with rose-hip jam.
Favorite thing: Just 2 km out of town is a part of the great Recreation Area "Fränkische Seenplatte", the Rothsee reservoir. It's a great place for boating, windsurfing, hiking, biking, swimming and iceskating in winter. The rervoir was built to keep a constant water level to the Rhine-Main canal, which links the river Rhine with the Danube river.
Walking through Allersberg may be fun for those interested in historical buildings.
There are guided walking tours of the Old Town. As they start irregularly, ask at the town hall for detailed information.
