Sejournant à Thurnau, un monsieur rencontré dans un bierstub nous a conseillé la visite de Kulmbach et de sa forteresse. Il nous a signalé son musée de la figurine en plomb. Je précise que je ne suis ... more »Bejenaru to Thurnau, a Mr. met in a bierstub advised us the visit of Kulmbach and his fortress. It has reported its Museum of the figure in lead. I said I'm not fan of model making. But saw that it was not far we went there by car. Only one hitch, already pointed out by previous visitors: can not Park near the fortress. We were able to Park 10 minute walk, in a parking for residents, on the slope leading to the Castle. Otherwise, there is a bus that takes you there from the city. In the case of a slope of 22% complete ascension on foot is killing! Once it is amazed by the mass of the Castle. It has 4 museums, including one of the lead figures quite amazing on 5 floors! For my part, I zapped one devoted to Napoleon I... Then, we took a ticket to the Museum of the history of Franconia. Everything being written in German is a bit complicated. There is such a map representing the world, scrolls, dating from the 14th century, with a diameter of 3 meters. We did not visit the part devoted to Frédéric it of Prussia, nor that in part inhabited by the margraves with the collection of paintings. It need a different ticket for each museum. The city of Kulmbach is quite interesting, with its brewery of course.

In the foreground is the time of the Marquis - okay, but that there have been periods of a prison there, and even in the NAZI era, the Plassenburg has played a prominent role, seems to be largely hidden. Granted, there are good and bad leaders, but what my probably gave the script given him by himself, was among of all cannon. Also the manner of the lecture - da more professionalism would be desirable even in temporary and honorary.
