Stadt Spalt (Druckversion)

The city of hops with heart

A more 1000 year old history shapes life in the hops metropolis of Franconia. Aware of tradition, old walls, and impressive half-timbered buildings communicate a historic air. The city tradition comes to life in the museum of local history, the craft parlour, and the museum of the fire department. Around the city there is an ancient cultural landscape with fruit orchards and hop gardens. The hop and beer museum documents the brewage tradition of the city. The foundation of the city dates from 800a.d. as a Benediction abbey. Historic towers and gateways show the eventful history of the city. Explore the historic Old Town in one of our guided tours.
