Start your own little adventure: In this collection, we have selected ten Micro Adventures in the area of ​​the Verkehrsverbunds Großraum Nürnberg (VGN), which are perfect for a little break – be it on foot or by bike. Enjoy great views from the roof Frankens, roll relaxed on the bike along the Regnitz, test the fun trails of the Heumödern trails or breathe in the fresh air in the Steigerwald. In Franconia and the Upper Palatinate you will find plenty of variety. Accordingly, the lengths of the tours vary. From the day trip to the multi-day tour, you can choose what you feel like and whether you prefer to be on foot or by bike.

And the nice thing is that you can reach all start and finish points of the tours quite relaxed with the buses and trains of the VGN. So start your hikes without stress and the after-work beer after an active day tastes even better.

If you plan a longer stay in the region, then you can set up your base camp in Bamberg, Bayreuth or Treuchtlingen and start from there in the different corners. So what are you waiting for: The (micro) adventure can begin!
