Furth is the picturesque and perfectly preserved neighbour of Nuremburg. Unlike the latter city, Furth’s stunning architectural cityscape emerged untouched from the ravages of war, so its historic Old Quarter still offers visitors a visual banquet of historical houses and magnificent monuments. Home to Germany’s first running train and wide expanses of inner city greenery, Furth offers a perfect balance of culture, history and nature that is guaranteed to delight even the most discerning traveller.
Furth’s atmospheric Old Town is an integral feature of anyone’s inspiring itinerary; here, an eclectic and extravagant melange of buildings exudes a palpable sense of historical heritage. Baroque gables and half-timbered houses decorate the quaint streets, upon which wanderers can easily imagine a lively and cheerful past.
Those seeking a restorative respite can enjoy the mineral enriched waters of the city by visiting the Furthermare Spa, an inner city and Mediterranean inspired spa that boasts soothing steam rooms, aromatic saunas and refreshing pools reputed to contain healing properties.
Throughout the years, Furth has been home to an eclectic mixture of religions, all of whom have lived together harmoniously in mutual respect. The Jewish Museum Franconia celebrates this cosmopolitan culture with a collection of sacred artefacts and alluring artworks. The museum also offered visitors guided walks of the city which focus on important religious and historical aspects.
Enjoy an elegant and exquisite example of fine Furth food at the Kupferpfanne, a sleek and stylish restaurant that still respects age old Bavarian traditions. Sit upon an elegantly upholstered chair before selecting a bottle of fine wine from the extensive list and perusing the menu for suitable specialities; rich in meat and robust flavour, the restaurant offers seasonal Bavarian delicacies made from locally sourced ingredients.( Königstraße 85, 90762 Fürth, Germany)
