    The history of Pottenstein can be traced back to the first written mention in 918. The town of Pottenstein was Obervogtamt of the Bishopric of Bamberg. In a city fire in 1736, 60 houses were destroyed, the town church was damaged.

    A lovely date to visit Pottenstein, the day of the Magi on January 6th. There the procession of lights for eternal worship takes place.

    Beautiful place with many half-timbered houses, awesome the festival of lights on 6.1.
    Fantastic view of the valley from the castle and the slope / mountain trails.
