Mountain Biking Highlight
Located directly on the border, between Bavaria and Thuringia, formerly the Federal Republic and the GDR, the Falkenstein brewery had to stop operating, fell into disrepair, and was demolished in the 1980s. The former brewery restaurant remains as a private house under the name "Villa Falkenstein". in the weeks after the border was opened, the restaurant went into operation again for a short time.

The Villa Falkenstein was probably the last building on the West German side before the great demarcation line. Since the opening of the border it is also known in the "East". In the old days the West Germans certainly liked to look at the "border", today it is a bit sleepy. Unfortunately, nothing was going on at the time of our visit, so that one cannot say whether there is still gastronomy there or whether it is used purely for private purposes.
