The town of Velburg

The baroque buildings are built closely next to each other. They are painted in red, yellow, green, orange or blue. Their windows and doors have a white frame. The lowest series of windows is roughly a meter above the ground. The lawns in front of the buildings are glazing in green, the trees are blooming and the flowers are shining in the most colorful colors.  At the top of the quaint civic center is the wonderful, beige-colored, neo-Gothic city hall with its stately bright red crenellations. The parish church with its prominent onion-domed tower is located uphill at the street Burgstraße. The ruins of the old castle are enthroned on top of the hill. Velburg – what a view. You will fall in love with it!

The roots of Velburg’s nature are millions of years old: Witnesses to this long history are the landscapes of the Upper Palatinate’s Jura with its meadow valleys, the crests covered in woodland with their caverns, grottos, bizarre rocks.  Nowadays, Velburg is mainly known for its King-Otto Stalactite Cave, the excellent golf course, its event center »Haus am Habsberg«, for the parish fair triathlon, its baroque churches and for its festivities. It is very cozy, particularly during Christmas season when the quaint civic center is lighted only by the few lamps from the booths, when the scent of mulled wine, cinnamon and gingerbread is in the wind and snow flakes fall on the colorful houses and the city hall. Velburg – what a view. You will fall in love with it!
