Coat of arms Tirschenreuth

In Ontario we have the "Thousand Islands", Tirschenreuth has the "Tausend Teiche" (Thousand ponds).
People started already in the 12 th. century digging ponds to grow fish. The history of these early fish farms and other information can be found in the unique fishing museum which has been established by volunteers.
You will find there many information about the history of the fish farms and fishing general.
When I lived as a child and lived in Upper Franconia where they also grow carp my friends and I always went swimming in those ponds. We enjoyed the water lilies, the frogs and the dragon flies. The water was sometimes muddy but we had fun.
We did not try this here in Tirschenreuth.

Some of the ponds - many thanks to

Oberpfälzer Fischereimuseum - many thanks to "Zebra848" and Wikipedia

Carp is considered to be a delicacy in many countries. You can order it either fried or boiled. In certain cities they have specialty restaurants who offer mostly carp in the right season.
We visited some of the ponds and took pictures but a already mentioned we lost most of our own pictures which we took in Bavaria. Unfortunately I could not find any in Wikipedia.

Klettnersturm - many thanks to "Zebra848" and Wikipedia
We had followed the creek Waldnaab from Falkenberg to Tirschenreuth.
Tirschenreuth has a population of a little bit more than 9000 and as you can see it is located very close the Czech Republic. If you have enough time plan a visit! Not knowing that we would be back in Canada in a few month we missed that chance.
We learned that Tirschenreuth can be traced back to the year 1134 and all the ponds were created to supply fish to the monastery in Waldsassen. The pond area is known as the "Teichpfanne".
The "Klettnersturm" shown on the left is one of the landmarks - the only remaining part of the town wall. The tower can only be visited during special events.
The surrounding area is perfect for hiking. You can discover many little attractions which nature has created.
Please visit the local tourist office to get information. Having lost all our own pictures I have a difficult time to remember everything.
