Wander over undulating hills separated by rugged gorges, through mighty forests and ancient stone formations, and pass plenty of pristine bathing lakes. On the Celtic trails in Franconia, immerse yourself in an adventure of cultural discovery, and enjoy the breathtaking views of the Maintal. The hiking trails themselves will wind you through the landscape of the Obermain as you weave your way around numerous churches and monasteries. And for your physical well-being, Mother Nature will make sure you’re in good hands, offering everything the wandering heart desires, from beautiful peaks to conquer along your way to lakes for cooling off in once you’re done.

The perfect place for cultural immersion, the area is like one giant open-air museum with info-charts plotted on the edge of roads that retell the tales of old. Stand where the Celts once stood, trace the tracks ancestors millennia before you once traced—and truly discover history amongst a sea of fossils.
