Pottenstein is a town in the district of Bayreuth, in Bavaria, Germany. It is situated 23 km southwest of Bayreuth, and 26 km east of Forchheim. The city of Pottenstein, altitude 350–614 m AMSL, with its nearly 1,500 inhabitants, is a nationally acclaimed climatic health-resort in Franconian Switzerland. It nestles at the convergence of the Püttlach, Weihersbach and Haselbrunn valleys surrounded by high cliffs and at the foot of the 1000-year-old castle, which has played an important role throughout the city's history. The scenic landscape and nature offer a wide spectrum along with unique features such as the Devil's cave with its fascinating stalactites and stalagmites.
The thousand years old castle of Pottenstein, located about sixty meters above the small town of Pottenstein (founded in 1348), gives a beautiful and characteristic view of both landscape and town.
Hendrik who lives in those parts sent me this pretty card.
