Art, Culture & Cuisine

Kronach, the birthday town of the important German painter and printer Lucas Cranach the Elder, stands for art, culture and culinary delights. A highlight for art lovers is the Fränkische Galerie – a branch museum of the Bavarian National Museum in Munich with Franconian works of art from the Middle Ages and the Renaissance.

The more than 1000 year old city of Kronach enchants not only with its old town but also with its wide range of nature, sports and recreation. The multitude of castles and palaces is contrasted by a wide range of hiking and cycling trails, so the city offers a holiday and leisure offer rich in contrast for all guests.

Culinary delights are also very important in Kronach. The city is one of 100 places of enjoyment in Bavaria, where the focus is on products and producers, craftsmen and farmers. With their daily work they contribute to making the food and the culinary variety of enjoyment in Kronach unique.

Rosenberg Fortress

The former Bamberg bishop’s castle and later state fortress rises steeply above the old town of Kronach. It is one of the most beautiful and largest fortifications in Germany and was never conquered or defeated by enemies at that time. The underground corridor system is of particular charm and can be experienced during a guided tour of the fortress.

More info: Rosenberg Fortress (including history, guided tours)

Franconian Gallery

The branch museum of the Bavarian National Museum Munich was opened in 1983 and presents Franconian works of art from the Middle Ages and the Renaissance in 25 showrooms. Thanks to modern lighting technology, works by Cranach, Riemenschneider, Hans von Kulmbach and many others shine in a very special light on visitors!

More info: Franconian Gallery (including opening hours)

Rennsteig – the legendary high trail

Start or end the tour by bike on the legendary “Höhenweg” and start in Kronach! The Rennsteig is not only a hiking trail, but also a path through the culture and history of the regions. In the past it fulfilled many functions as a courier path or national border.

Experiential education programmes

At the JUFA Hotel Kronach – Festung Rosenberg***, students experience their class trip and project days in a unique flair. The museum educational offer directly in the fortress offers ideal conditions.

Studio of the stonemasons

It is one of the oldest professions of mankind. Since ancient times, stonemasons have preserved the knowledge of the artful processing of stone and the construction of stone buildings. Also in Kronach, where they have been working on the construction of a fortress since the 16th century. Which techniques did the stonemasons use and what is a stonemason’s mark? Learn more and design your own stonemason’s mark.

Kitchen, scent and secrecy

The tour is mainly aimed at children in the 1st to 6th grade (6-12 years) and is dedicated to the topics of nutrition and hygiene in general, but also to life on the fortress in particular. The tour takes your group to areas of the fortress that are otherwise not accessible to the public. The children also explore the underworld of the fortress.

Lucas Cranach workshop: Prince Painter

The court painter Lucas Cranach had to make several of his portraits. In the Franconian Gallery, paintings of the two electors and brothers, Frederick the Wise and John the Steadfast, are first examined under the magnifying glass. In the workshop, the participants try their hand at portraits of our “modern princes” – either Chancellor or Prince Painter Cranach – just like the journeymen in the master’s workshop with stencil and division of labour.

Here you will find an overview of school educational programmes in Kronach. Seminar and workshop rooms, a medieval castle complex, studio rooms, playground and a campfire site are available for you in addition to numerous outdoor activities.

Tips for group excursions? In the immediate vicinity of the JUFA Hotel Kronach – Fortress Rosenberg***, you are spoilt for choice: as a supplement to the museum educational offers, a guided tour of the city of Kronach, an adventurous raft trip on the Rodach, the unique Tropical House Klein Eden as well as Lauenstein Castle and much more await you.

The city of Bamberg – UNESCO World Heritage Site – with its numerous historical buildings is also recommended as a special day trip. You can reach Bamberg, the “Franconian Rome”, ideally with the Deutsche Bahn in 40 minutes without changing trains.
