Wunsiedel, Bavaria, Germany, is located nearby the Czech border in the northeast of Bavaria. The town with a population of just over nine thousand people belongs to Upper Franconia. The seat of this administrative region is Bayreuth. Upper Franconia is famous for its numerous breweries and the diversity of beer. After Adolf Hitler's deputy died in prison in the late eighties, the town became a place of pilgrimage for Nazis visiting his grave. The first legal gathering of right-wing extremists triggered counter demonstrations of anti-fascist and action groups in the following decade. In order to stop this infamous and unwanted tourism, in recent years, the human remains were exhumed and cremated.

Wunsiedel is comparatively small and not very touristic. Therefore, the number of accommodations is limited. You can find some hotels and traditional guesthouses in the town.
