Mountain Biking Highlight
During the Thirty Years' War Zirndorf moved into the center of European history with the Battle of the Old Veste in Zirndorf's municipal forest. There, the Protestant king Gustav II Adolf of Sweden and the commander-in-chief of the imperial Catholic army, Albrecht von Wallenstein, faced each other in September 1632 with their troops. While the Swedish king entrenched himself with his army in Nuremberg and put on a sprawling ring of field fortifications around the city, Wallenstein had in the area of today's cities Zirndorf, Oberasbach and Stein build one of the largest military military camps. Between 17 July and 23 September, around 50,000 mercenaries and a companion of about 30,000 people lived in the 16-kilometer camp.Source and more info's: zirndorf-tourismus.de/wallenstein
