    From Neuburg on the Danube River to Prague, Cracow, Berlin, and back to Neuburg: a tour of more than 1370 miles, covered within three winter months on horseback, on snow-covered trails and mud-clogged routes. In 1536 a Bavarian prince, Otto Henry of Wittelsbach, Count Palatine of Palatinate-Neuburg, and his painter set out for Cracow. The travellers’ tour stops are recorded on large-scale coloured drawings, presenting today the earliest known purlieus of many cities in Bavaria, Bohemia, Poland, Silesia and Saxony. Wuerzburg University Library now invites internet users to trace Otto Henry’s paths on screen.
