    Eichstätt the old university town is definitely worth to visit and pause. In the city you can stop in the market square in one of the many cafes or you just sit in the shade and watch the market go by.The city is located on the Altmühl near the geographical center of Bavaria and in the triangle of the largest Bavarian centers of Munich, Nuremberg and Augsburg. Eichstätt is the capital of Altmühltal. The northern valley slope above the city forms an extension of the Franconian Jura. The highest point in the city is the so-called Matterhorn, a former waste dump near the district of Lüften, 574 meters high. At the lowest point at 384 meters, the Altmühl leaves the urban area. The city center is at an altitude of 393 meters. The city is the eponymous place of Eichstätt Alb.

    In Eichstätt there is more to see than just the Willibaldsburg (most photos). Resting comfortably on one of the many places and enjoying the old town facades is also very nice.

    Eichstätt, the multi-layered Altmühlstadt lives up to its slogan. The city spreads out like a treasure chest on the turns of the Altmühl. It contains precious objects such as famous fossils, the built works of art from the Baroque period or the award-winning wealth of ideas in modern architecture. From Eichstätt you can discover the Altmühltal nature park most beautifully when hiking and cycling or from the river while hiking. As a large district town, Eichstätt with its almost 14,000 inhabitants is the administrative seat of the northernmost district in Upper BavariaSource / more information:
