If you like hiking off-the-beaten-track, then you’ve come to the right place here. In this Collection, we present our favourite walks in the Upper Main-Jura holiday region in Germany. Between Bamberg, Bayreuth and Kulmbach, narrow paths guide you through deep valleys, past towering rock formations, and over flowering juniper slopes to impressive mountain ranges with guaranteed views. On the way, you discover old castle ruins, historic mills, and Franconian half-timbered villages nestled amongst beautiful nature. We’ve put together our ten favourite Tours in the Upper Main-Jura for you here. All of the routes can be mastered by anyone, even beginners and families.

As different as our favourite Tours are, they all have one thing in common: spectacular views over the wide landscape and vantage points which tempt you to stay awhile. Sometimes, you catch a glimpse of Banz Monastery or the pilgrimage Basilica of the Fourteen Holy Helpers whilst other times, a mountain range with panoramic views awaits. A tough climb to the Staffelberg, Kordigast or the Banzer Berg peaks is followed by a rewarding view over the Main Valley or the steep slopes of the Jura Mountains. You can enjoy the Franconian Way of life with a tasty snack and freshly-tapped beer at a restaurant or beer garden en route.

As you can see, the Upper Main-Jura offers plenty for hikers, pleasure seekers, culture enthusiasts and nature lovers alike. Browse through our Collection and start dreaming about your hikes in Upper Main’s Garden of Eden.
