Bike Touring Highlight
Lichtenfels lies in the so-called Gottesgarten on Obermain in Upper Franconia. Already in 1142 the place was mentioned for the first time in a document. The place became known through the basket trade in the 19th century. Lichtenfels is the stage of the Main Cycle Route and offers a good infrastructure and some cultural highlights. The Banz Monastery, the Staffelberg and the Basilica Vierzehnheiligen are not far from the city gates.

Town, but cozy and always something going on. Good restaurants, cafes and ice cream parlors, especially the Eiscafe Dolomiti in the Bahnhofstraße. Lichtenfels is also famous for its wicker products, and every year in September the wicker market takes place.
