The city-states of the Holy Roman Empire produced a volatile and complicated political climate which catalyzed one of the most fantastic competitive building programs in history. This resulted in the construction of delightful architectural gems scattered throughout the hills of Bavaria, the woodlands of Saxony, and the plains of Bohemia–all ready to be discovered.
