Spires Interesting : Michelin's recommendations

Bibendum

The city of Spire had been a bishopric since the 7C when it became an Imperial City in 1294. More than 50 Imperial Diets were held there, the last being in 1570. Speyer was razed to the ground by Louis XIV's troops during the Palatinate war of succession. After a brief period of French rule - it was handed over to the French in 1797 - Spire passed into the hands of the Bavarian monarchs. Its reputation as an administrative centre dates from this period when many authorities were moved to the town.
