The landscape around Hammelburg is natural and diverse. Situated in the South of the Rhön Mountains the Franconian river Saale meanders around our town. On its edges you will find vineyards, several castles and cosy and quiet side valleys.
Hammelburg has got many historical buildings, picturesque alleys and comfortable spots. Famous artists and architects once worked there. You can also visit a lot of castles and listed buildings which tell of times long past. Qualified tourist guides and extraordinary museums inform guests about history, traditions and customs.
Whoever prefers mysticism will find something very special in Hammelburg that can’t be found anywhere else: three mysterious, life-size sculptures on the mountain Hammelberg. Until today no one knows how these were put up there without being noticed.
