The other one, is the Catholic Church of St. John This...more
As you can see, there are quite a few points of interest that I saw on my walk.One I particularly liked, was the fountain, which I think was near the entrance to the old Bridge.It is of a man squeezing a Frog so hard, that the water is spurting from its mouth!There were more interesting building's and sculpture's and garden's scattered around the...more
Located admidst a pretty garden in the middle of the square, is the Ludwig Fountain, which was founded in 1892 by Oskar von Deuster. The square is known as the "Place of the Twin Cities."Kitzingen is twinned with Montevarchi, Italy and Prades, Pyrenees-Orientales, Francemore
Kitzingen was once an important Jewish community, so it was no surprise to find a big, old Synagogue dating back to 1882.Once again, this is another building that was destroyed by fire in 1938 and had to be rebuilt. It wasn't until 1991 when they built the synagogue again. A small chapel still exists.more
The Luitpoldbau is quite an impressive building! In 1914, when a rich source of brine was discovered, it was to be the "Prince Regent Luitpold-Bad." World War II came along, and these plan's never eventuated, with the finished Health Spa used for decades as a public bath. After the opening of a new brine swimming pool in 1977, the Luitpoldbad was...more
Located in the Market Square, is the attractive Renaissance Town Hall with a 39 metre high Tower. Built in 1563, in early year's, it was used as a Watch Tower and Prison. On the Town Hall are two sculptures, one is the "Hacker," who is a laborer working in the vineyards, and the other is his partner the "Cathedral," who is holding Goblet's in his...more
An arched Bridge over a River is always a lovely sight, especially if the day is nice and the reflection's are good.I was lucky as there was hardly any breeze. The old Bridge, which had 12 Arches, was built in 1300 to replace a Ferry.As there was a lot of River traffic in latter year's, the "old stone bridge," had to have less arches. The stone...more
This Protestant Church, painted in quite a deep Gold, was designed by an Italian Architect and built and ordained in 1699.Originally an Ursuline Convent Church until the Monastery disolved in 1803, then it was used as Hospital.

Though to me it was pity we didn't find the cafe I once was stopping by, this Italian ice cafe Cortina was just fine too. It's located right in the middle of Kitzingen's old town, and there for it takes time to find a parking place. We were very lucky with the weather and there for enjoyed the cafe's outdoor seats. Nice ice cream too.
Primal Scream is a tattoo parlor in the heart of Kitzingen's pedestrian district. It is a very popular place for locals, and also for soldiers stationed nearby.
Dress Code: I imagine there isn't much of a dress code...
The bridge over the Main River accomodates both pedestrians and automobiles. It is pretty narrow and there is usually a lot of foot traffic, so be careful if you step off the sidewalk!
