Tips

  • Söhni 🏃

    Seßlach is arguably the jewel of the Coburg district. It is not for nothing that it is called Rothenburg in Upper Franconia. The medieval town with its city walls and gate towers comes very close to the original in Middle Franconia. The idyllic cityscape has served repeatedly as a film set in recent years, for example in the film about the reformer Martin Luther or in 2005 in a film adaptation of the children's book "Der Räuber Hotzenplotz".

    Sesslach is preserved by a fully preserved city wall with three gates that will be closed at the weekend. Then it is only on foot through the city and visitors enjoy undisturbed the medieval flair.

    Seßlach has an exceptionally well-preserved medieval townscape. The walk through the village is therefore all the more fun. The old facades look really nice.
    The cozy Christmas market during Advent is a real highlight and can only be recommended.

    The old town of Seßlach is still almost completely surrounded by its late medieval wall. Unusually, the loose turrets on the wall crown instead of a battlement. The three gate towers have been preserved. The fortification of the town of Würzburg was built in the 14th / 15th. Century and was expanded in the 16th and 17th centuries. In front of the Rothenberger Tor, a baroque arch bridge completes the historic ensemble.
    In addition to numerous residential and commercial buildings of the 16.-18. At the beginning of the 20th century, the representative Episcopal official buildings and the Gülthof of the Würzburg Juliusspital shape the picturesque townscape. Some houses in the "home style" of the early 20th century were built after the great fire in 1905.
    The late Gothic staging hall of the Catholic parish church of St. John the Baptist was baroqueized in the 18th century. Of the older equipment, some Renaissance epitaphs of the von Lichtenstein family and a late Gothic winged altar are particularly noteworthy. In front of the gate Hattersdorfer stands on the road to Dietersdorf the baroque cemetery chapel Holy Cross
    Above the city, Geiersberg Castle sits on a hill. Remains of the shield wall and the keep are reminiscent of the medieval castle complex of the Lichtensteiner. The main building with its stair tower dates back to the 17th century, when the castle was the seat of the mayor of Würzburg. The commercial buildings date back to the 18th century.
    The castle Heilgersdorf in the district Heilgersdorf is a typical example of a Franconian country castle. The Baroque three-winged building can only be visited from the outside.
    The imposing saddle roof construction of Schloss Wiesen between Seßlach and Heilgersdorf dates back to the 16th century. This former noble residence is also privately owned and is not accessible.

    Seßlach is located in the Upper Franconian district of Coburg, its townscape resembles a medieval town. Many houses have a rose as a sign of good renovation. 1987 Seßlach became the national winner of exemplary urban redevelopment. Sights city wall, city gates, city center.

    Nice hike from Neuses a.d. Oaks to Seßlach and back. Quiet and comfortable hiking trail. Unfortunately we were lost on the way back despite GPS.
    To make matters worse, it was still dark, but the LED light on the smartphone has us back well. In autumn a wonderfully beautiful way.

    Seßlach is a wonderful little medieval town with a completely preserved city wall.
    Reminds me a lot of Dinkelsbühl or Rothenburg only much, much smaller.

    Maximiliansplatz with its magnificent half-timbered houses is best enjoyed with a short break from one of the managed outdoor areas of the neighboring restaurant. 3D enjoyment!
