Tüchersfeld is a church village in the Püttlach valley in Franconian Switzerland and belongs to the town of Pottenstein.
Due to the prominent rocks of a meander cutoff hill, which emerged as the result of the uplifting of the Franconian Jura in the Late Tertiary and the deposition of a thick bed of sand in the Upper Cretaceous, and its timber-framed-houses, which appear in places to be glued onto the rocks, Tüchersfeld is a symbol of Franconian Switzerland and has also been portrayed on postage stamps of the Deutsche Post. Until the Thirty Years’ War there were two castles here, the Upper and Lower Castles, the latter was recorded in 1269 as a fortress that had already been in existence for a long time.
