    The Salzburg is a small castle that overlooks Bad Neustadt. It's not very big, the clinics on the hill with the castle totally overpower it. The castle is still privately owned, only the enterance area and the chapel are open to the public. If you're hungry, there's also an Italian restaurant inside. There is also a trail that circles around the castle, it takes about ten minutes to walk completely around. This is supposedly where Karl the Great stood and declared he would build the city shaped like a heart. He must have been there before the forest was. There is absolutely no view of Bad Neustadt from the Salzburg.

    So you came all the way to Germany, but didn't have time to go to Berlin? No problem! Bad Neustadt has it's very own slice of the Berlin Wall, 5km south of the city, in the village of Niederlauer. It has been erected next to a watchtower from the middle ages. The "dicke turm" was erected to keep an eye out for the Swedes that constantly pillaged the area in the middle ages. What the Berlin Wall and the Dicke Turm have in common, I have no idea. There is a staircase that goes to the top of the tower(it's more like a spiral ladder), that gives a view of the entire Saale valley from Bad Neustadt to Münnerstadt.

    The old city inside the walls is quite well preserved. There are reletively few new buildings. It's a good place to window shop,and walk down the cobblestoned alleyways. There are also several good places to eat in the marketplace. Look closely at the statue in the center of the marketplace. This statue caused quite the stir when it was erected. Not only does it have it's back towards the church, it's backside is showing!

    The Kreuzberg is a mountain that has become the symbol of the Franken region. In the seventh century, the Franciscan monks built a monastery, which remains to this day. The main reason for a pilgrimage to this monastery is to drink the beer. It's served in half-liter mugs and has a dark, coffee color. And for those of you that have to drive, they sell large bottles in sizes ranging from one to ten liters. In addition to beer, the restaruant serves local cuisine.

    The A71 autobahn from Schweinfurt to Erfurt opened in Decamber 2005. Makes travel in the area ALOT easier. Exits for Bad Neustadt are in Muennerstadt, Roedelmaier, and Mellrichstadt. Makes it possible to see the Rhoen and the Thueringer forest all in one day without spending hours behind slow trucks on the country roads.

    The Niederlauer Bauernbrot (farmer's bread) is a local favorite. If you have travelled this far, it's worth the time to take the 5 minute side trip to Niederlauer to try a loaf. If you buy it in the mornig, it's usually so hot, you can barely hold it! The bauernbrot is available in the Backerei Wolf. Just head toward Niederlauer and look for the signs. Niederlauer is a small village, the Backerei is not too hard to find. Niederlauer is south of Bad Neustadt about 5km. Head towards Schweinfurt on the B19 highway, and at the stoplight outside of town, turn right and follow the signs to Niederlauer.

    There is a small outdoor museum on the site of the formar border crossing between East and West Germany. It's on the B19 between Bad Neustadt and Meiningen. It's only accessible by car, and its not very well marked. When coming from Bad Neustadt, the road starts going uphill. There is a sign for a parking area near the top of the hill. If you see the guardtower, you've gone too far. At the back of the parking lot is the Border crossing in a fenced-off area. After walking through the barricades, there is a path up the hill, with a spectacular view. For more information, please check out my Mellrichstadt travelogue.
