Bike Touring Highlight
Dietfurt is a closed, beautiful place with a Franciscan monastery and attached meditation house (Zen meditation), a Qigong way, a worth seeing small museum in the Holler house to the pre- and early history with documentation of the excavations on the occasion of the construction of the Rhine-Main-Danube Canals, remains of a defensive wall with defense towers. The farcical Chinese well (from 1962) is related to the Chinese carnival, which has been committed since 1928 on "senseless Thursday" (Thursday before Shrove Tuesday). The call of a "Chinese city" dates back to the 18th century. A treasurer of the Eichstätt Bishop is said to have tried unsuccessfully to collect tax. He complained to his bishop, "The Dietfurters seem to me like Chinese people who hide behind the wall".
