The nature on hand in the Nürnberger Land is something very special. Here, you'll discover a fairytale karst landscape complete with towering rocks, deep caves and gorges, ancient forests, romantic valleys and wild rivers. And to see it all, there is no better means than to hike — to discover the Frankenalb low mountain range, to immerse yourself in the magical world of the Rinntal, and to experience the romantic forests of the Veldenstein.

Thanks to over 1,250 miles (2,000 kilometers) of well-marked hiking trails, the Nürnberger Land has something for everyone, whether you are a beginner, a pleasure hiker or a mountain hiker. From day hikes to half-day walks, you'll find it all here. As you go, you can expect excellent trail markings and beautiful views, as well as great hotels, restaurants, and public transport facilities en route.

In this collection we present you a fine selection of the eight most beautiful day tours in the Nuremberg area. If you are also interested in cycling tours or multi-day hikes, you should definitely take a look at our other collections: komoot.de/user/nuernbergerland/collections
