I always found it more enjoyable to travel on the smaller roads than on the main highways. By doing so, I discovered many unique, little places. That also guided both of us to Amerang. Our first find was the Amerang Castle where we stopped to explore it. Check the Internet for more information and events such as concerts.
Elizabeth loves castles. Sometimes she went alone with a Bavarian girl friend, just to go on a castle tour. She was not only interested in the many displayed paintings and tapestries but also how people lived at that time, the furniture used, what they did for entertainment and the uniqueness of their toilets.
Elizabeth bought many postcards because her own photos could never capture the beauty of the architecture or landscape.

After Elizabeth had seen "her" castle, I coaxed her into visiting a museum which displayed old German built cars. In addition they showed model trains in a huge display.
At the car museum, called "EFA- Museum für Deutsche Automobilgeschichte", we learned that Amerang has also a "Bauernhausmuseum" which means farm house museum. Having
arrived relatively late in Amerang we decided to see that farm museum on another day. This day has still to come.
Our favorite locations to visit are quiet, little villages such as Amerang, which has kept her own character, even when they depend on the tourist trade.
Another reason for returning to Amerang is to enjoy an evening meal or day time lunch in a restaurant that has been recommended to me by a friend. The attraction is the serving of medieval dishes by staff in period costumes.
We enjoyed something like that in Eisenach, Thuringia.
Amerang is an attractive village with a population of about 3.500. It can be traced back to the year 788.
Maybe this fact inspired the people shown on the right to offer trip back into medieval dining. Don't be surprised if it is not exactly tailored to meet "weight watchers" standards.
But if you do some hiking or other activities during your stay in Upper Bavaria you can easily loose the gained weight.
If you like it here check the offered accommodations. Most of them are in Bavarian style.
