Castles and palaces all the time - take your time for this historic tour from Kronach, because you may want to explore some of the walls not just from the outside.With medieval flair you start in the beautiful old town of Kronach. You roll through the picturesque Hasslach valley without any noteworthy gradients first to the north and then turn to the west. In Mitwitz you stand in front of the first magnificent building, the moated castle. It is well worth a visit, as the castle, which is surrounded by water, contains furnishings from four centuries.Schmölz Castle around seven kilometers away will probably put you in a Scottish mood. The ivy-clad castle was first built in the 12th century and rebuilt after being destroyed in the 16th century.Shortly before Kronach you cross the Rodach. If you like, you can take a real raft trip here before heading back to Kronach with a view of the mighty Rosenberg Fortress.
