The Görauer Anger (552m) is the northern foothills of the Franconian Switzerland and is located about 11 km west of the beer town of Kulmbach, halfway between Bamberg and Bayreuth.
From the more than 5 km long ridge offers a unique view. The "Anger" is one of the most beautiful viewpoints in Franconia. As far as the eye can see, the visitor is greeted by a panorama of unique beauty. From the cliffs, which drop steeply to the Main Valley, the view in the north extends far to Thuringia and the Franconian Forest. East to the Fichtelgebirge and Steinwald. In the south to the northern Upper Palatinate with the robbing Kulm. The circle closes in the west by the heights of the Franconian Switzerland and the Bamberger country.

Between Zultenberg and Görau you walk for 1 km along the unwooded northeastern Jura edge with a fantastic view of Kulmbacher Land, Fichtelgebirge, Frankewald and Thuringian Forest.
About 800 m from here towards Görau is right hand in the forest and 300 m before you come to the cemetery chapel, the famous burial mound field from the Hallstatt period with u. a. two completely preserved chariot graves. Everything was excavated more or less competently in the penultimate century, the grandiose finds are distributed to various museums. A small information board to this is somewhat incoherent at the cemetery chapel of Görau.

The Görauer Anger is a popular destination, largely accessible on gravel roads. In my opinion, with a stroller. MTB as well. Grandiose view of the Kulmbacher Land and the Plassenburg. Sunsets and the view of the then illuminated castle would have to thrill most visitors as well. A must
