Do you love reading stories from and about history? Well, here you go: The Rhine-Neckar region offers three UNESCO World Heritage Sites, more than 200 castles and palaces—and innumerable stories thereof. We follow the traces of the Celts and Romans, the Salic dynasty and St. James pilgrims. We take you to one of the oldest European Jewish cemeteries in Worms and show you the place, where princes in the Bergstraße region used to love taking their breakfast. We invite you to explore Lost Places through the lens of a camera and find old-established businesses.
