The varied landscapes in Franconia can be excellently explored on your own in summer and autumn. A well-developed network of paths leads you through the dense valleys of the Spessart, over the Fichtelgebirge or through the heart of the Frankenhöhe nature park. In this collection, we have selected two daily warm-up tours and eight long-distance hiking trails through this unique region.

The longest tour with 24 stages is the Frankenweg. On the 323 miles (about 520 kilometer) long route, you will probably get the best insight into the Franconian region, the beauty of nature and the charm of the quaint villages. If you prefer to start with a shorter long distance trail, then the two Spessart trails 1 and 2 are just the thing for you. On three stages each they show you the picturesque landscape of the low mountain range. Overnight accommodations and rest rooms you will find enough along your hiking trails. The arrival or departure by public transport works well.

Whether a leisurely stroll through the woods, a challenging day hike, a relaxed multi-day tour for a long weekend or a long-distance hiking trail with a promising view, every hiker will find happiness in the beautiful Franconia. You can also choose different stages of the long-distance hiking trails for your day out. However you design your hiking holiday: between the Fichtelgebirge and the Frankenwald in the north, the Rhön and the Spessart-Mainland in the west, the Altmühltal Nature Park in the south and the Nürnberger Land in the east, a varied landscape of wide meadows, narrow valleys and wooded lures Mountains to extensive discovery tours.
