    Beautiful baroque town in the Altmühltal. A short break is worthwhile not only because of the gorgeous cityscape, the beautiful atmosphere and the charming rest stops. You will also find a lot of interesting facts here, for example in the Willibaldsburg with the Jura Museum or in the Altmühltal Nature Park information center.

    Eichstätt, the multi-layered Altmühlstadt lives up to its slogan. The city spreads out like a treasure chest on the bends of the Altmühl. Treasures such as famous fossils, the built works of art from the Baroque era or the award-winning inventiveness of modern architecture sparkle in it. From Eichstätt you can discover the nature park Altmühltal in the most beautiful way while hiking and cycling or from the river by boat. As a major district town, Eichstätt is the administrative seat of the northernmost district in Upper Bavaria with almost 14,000 inhabitants

    Eichstätt the old university town is definitely worth heading for and stopping. In the city you can stop in one of the many cafés on the market square or you can just sit in the shade and watch the market go by.

    The city is located on the Altmühl near the geographical center of Bavaria and in the triangle of the largest Bavarian regional centers Munich, Nuremberg and Augsburg. Eichstätt is the capital of the Altmühltal. The northern slope of the valley above the town forms an extension of the Franconian Jura. The highest point in the urban area is the so-called Matterhorn, a former spoil dump near the district of Lüften, 574 meters high. At the lowest point at 384 meters, the Altmühl leaves the city. The city center is at an altitude of 393 meters. The city is the eponymous place of the Eichstätter Alb.

    With its uniform baroque cityscape and small town charm, Eichstätt is one of the most beautiful cities in Bavaria. In addition, the city has important sights with the residence, the cathedral and the canons.

    The market square was the center of the Eichstatt town, which developed in the Middle Ages between the cathedral and the St. Walburg monastery.

    The parish church once stood here, the former Eichstätter citizen church. However, only the north wall of the Gothic building remained. In 1444 the town hall with the towering tower was built on the market square. The late Gothic building was redesigned in the early 19th century. Since then, the town hall has had a neo-baroque facade with a curved gable and balcony on the main front.

    You can take your time here. A beautiful, baroque place with lots of opportunities to relax. You can either find a place on one of the numerous benches or in a beautiful café or beer garden that line the square.

    In Eichstätt there is more to see than just the Willibaldsburg (most photos). Resting comfortably on one of the many places and enjoying the old town facades is also very nice.

    Baroque and Rococo city. Highlight is the Residenzplatz. Due to its baroque uniformity, it is one of the most beautiful town squares in Dtl. with the 16m high Marian column. On the northern side the prince-bishop residence. In the center of the city is the Cathedral of St. Salvator with the marble urn of St. Willibald, a companion of St. Boniface, who founded in 741 in "Eihstat" a missionary monastery. Nice also the market place with city hall, the former monastery church Notre Dame de Sacré Coeur with the information center Altmühltal. Very well worth seeing are the parks of the summer residence of the prince-bishops, today the administration of the only Catholic university in Dtl. and the Willibaldsburg with the Jura Museum.

    A bit in the direction of St. Walburg there is the best ice cream in town;) Not far from the stairs to the monastery ... but don't want to name a name :)

    The weekly market is there on Wednesday and Saturday mornings. Among other things, with many regional and organic products on offer. For the little hunger in between: delicious trucks (Leberkäsweck) are available at the butcher Kettner or Schneider.
    The Eichstätter Stadtlinie bus also has a stop here, and the "Eichstätt-Stadt" train station is only a few minutes' walk across the Spitalbrücke or the Herzogsteg (if it is rebuilt one day).
