For example, according to the Municipal Magazine 23 of the 30 most liveable cities in Germany are in Bavariaalso most of The most familiar small towns are in Bavaria – with a winner from Upper Bavaria. But now two Bavarian cities appear on a list that isn’t exactly famous: they’re part of Riva Verlag’s “Ugliest Cities in Germany” quartet.

“Happy Parlor Game”: Germany’s ugliest cities as a foursome, including Bavaria

The quartet includes some cities in Germany, which are ranked and collected based on the categories of surrounding areas, air pollution, proportion of green spaces, special attractions, and insignificance. The game is played according to the usual foursome rules. The description of the product on Amazon, for example, says: “Who manages to get the four letters of the ‘Ruhrpottcharme’ and ‘Where is that?’ to pick up?”

Whoever gets the most “thumbs down” wins. These are distributed on cards for the respective categories. Therefore, a card can have a total of 25 thumbs down. According to infranken.de there is a Bavarian town in the middle of the set – Court, located in Northeast Free State, has a total of 14 rejections. In the “insignificance” category there are even four out of five possible thumbs down. The second Bavarian city of the quartet is furth in Middle Franconia.

“Humiliating”: some serious criticism of Riva Verlag’s game

“Germany’s most beautiful monstrosity in a happy parlor set” – it also says in the product description. But not all users can benefit from this. In Amazon reviews of the game, for example, one user writes that “the information in the card game is completely unrealistic and demeaning to the specified cities.”

Others praise the joke of the game, it is a fun quartet for young and old, writes another user.
