Spalt

The Hops and Beer Town

Spalt is a charming little town located in the middle of the Franconian Lake District (Fränkisches Seenland). It originally grew up around a Benedictine abbey founded in 800 AD. Parts of the original medieval town walls, towers and gates still bear witness to Spalt´s eventful history. The well-preserved Old Town is a lovely place for a stroll, with winding alleys and lovely Baroque town houses. Among the most prominent features are the old half-timbered “hops houses” with their mighty gabled roofs. These roofs were used for drying and storing the hops grown in the surrounding region, which used to be the town´s most important trading commodity.

Just outside the town the idyllic Igelsbach Lake and the larger Grosser Brombach Lake and the beautiful surrounding countryside provide plenty of opportunities for outdoor holiday activities, including swimming, cycling, hiking, keeping fit with Nordic Walking or just enjoying nature and culture.
