    The city on the Altmühl is considered the capital of Altmühltal. There is much to discover here. So here on the northern Talabhang a foothills of the Franconian Jura. This is known for its fossils, which were found here and are still found. Historically, the big district town offers a lot. Already from the 5th century BC, people settled here. The Celts were the first Eichstätter and in Roman times the Limes was nearby.

    There are several monasteries and a cathedral to visit. A special highlight is certainly the Willibaldsburg with the Jura Museum. And the many places invite you to unwind. If you still have time, you can see museums, gardens and historic buildings. Boredom certainly does not occur in Eichstätt.

    The Cathedral of Eichstätt (St. Salvator, U.L. Frau and St. Willibald) is the cathedral church of the Catholic diocese of Eichstätt in Eichstätt, Bavaria. The three-aisled hall church goes to the founding of the St.. Willibald back, who is said to have built a first stone church here in the 8th century. The present church was built mainly in late Gothic and late Gothic styles and was completed in 1718 by a baroque west facade. Together with the cloister and the two-aisled Mortuarium, the cathedral is considered one of the most important medieval architectural monuments in Bavaria.Source:
