    The Plassenburg is a hilltop castle above the Upper Franconian town of Kulmbach, surrounded by fortifications from the Renaissance period. As one of the most imposing and largest Renaissance buildings in Germany, it has long been a model in fortress construction and is now the city's landmark.

    On the forecourt you have a wonderful view of the town of Kulmbach at your feet. Fixed binoculars are available for a fee.
