Forchheim, the largest district city in Franconia in northern Bavaria, is the seat of the administrative region of upper Franconia. A former royal city, it is sometimes called the "Gateway to the Franconian Switzerland," as the region is known. Forchheim is home to many interesting sites, including a city hall dating back to the 14th century; the Kaiserplaz, a 14th century prince-bishop's palace; the Marienkapelle chapel built in the 12th century; the Klosterkirche and Kloster monastery; and the Kammerersm├╝hle, a former mill now used as a wine bar.
