10. Linux-Bierwanderung 2009

Aug 15 2009 - Aug 23 2009

As mentioned above the area is quite hilly. This means there are loads of opportunities for organizing walks.
As we also plan to organize at least one trip to the Pottenstein and the Franconian Switzerland area you can expect some picturesque views.

Helmbrechts and its surrounding area provides many possible activities.

Cultural activities
If you're interested in technical history you will find the Textile Museum, or if you are more interested in the real heavy metal you can visit the Deutsches Dampflokomotiv-Museum. Wagner enthusiasts should visit Bayreuth (30km). If you are interested in European history, especially the Thirty Years' War, you should visit the Czech city of Cheb (Eger), where you can visit the Wallenstein house, the place he was murdered.

Recreation, Sports and "Wellness"
In Helmbrechts you will find a modern public swimming pool with indoor and outdoor pools and a wave machine.
Additionally, you can also enjoy swimming in 2 natural lakes (public and with life guards), both within walking distance.
During the trip to Pottenstein we plan to have a few rides on the Sommerrodelbahn. Several LBWers have tested the site and, we think, had a _lot_ of fun.
If you plan to bring your mountain bike you will find interesting (and maybe exhausting) routes. There are also quite flat routes (build over old railway lines) that even smaller children can master.
There is a special offer for those who'd like to bring their motorcycles. Hoppel, the local bartender, offers a guided tour through one of the most famous german biking areas (no offroad included). Depending on your skills this can become a _very_ interesting trip :)

As Helmbrechts is famous in the world of textile manufacturing, you'll find several factory outlets and even a Fashion Design studio.

Helmbrechts has several bars and restaurants and also a discotheque.
We already plan to organize 2 evening events at the Weinbrenners' site (known as BrandyBurg or Helmsdeep).
In the nearby city of Münchberg you'll find a cinema providing food and drinks for consumption during the movie.

Food and drink
The area is well known for the excellence of its food and drink.
For example, the nearby city of Kulmbach claims to be the world capital of beer.
Many people say that, even by Bavarian standards, our region is the worst for losing weight.
Many LBWers have already tried it and we guess they'll agree.

German. As English is first foreign language you can expect it to be understood widely.


Helmbrechts is a small town in Upper Franconia, which is part of northern Bavaria.
It's located between the city of Bayreuth and the borders of Saxony, Thuringia and The Czech Republic.

As the name implies it is a hilly area (400-800m above sealevel) in the region of Frankenwald (Franconian forest) with warm summers and snowy winters.
The climate in summer is quite decent as it doesn't get extremely hot.
Just to warn you: we are definitely not the Bavarians most people expect. We don't wear leather trousers or sing funny folksongs.
