With the Pegnitz, Rednitz and Regnitz rivers and wide meadows, Fürth is a big city with a green heart. Within a stone's throw from the charming old town and half-timbered houses, you find the three rivers, kilometres of riverside paths, a large city park, and forest. This mix of culture, tradition and nature makes the city a vibrant place to explore on foot. The 10 walks in this Collection take you to our favourite places in Fürth. Thanks to a great public transport network of underground trains, buses, and trains, you can easily enjoy short or long walks in and around the city.

From Fürth central station you can walk along the riverbank to the Solarberg mountain north of the city. There’s a great view from the top over the Main-Danube Canal and the surrounding countryside. You can also walk along the canal to reach the mountain. It’s also worthwhile exploring the streets of Fürth. A themed trail takes you to four medicinal springs in the city or you can visit some pubs and breweries on the beer hike. If you’re hiking as a family, you can take a short walk to discover the town’s playgrounds and mini-golf courses. Walking between the city park and the old town takes you through some of the most beautiful corners of the city.

A short walk from the centre, you reach the city forest where there are many pleasant hiking trails. Look out for the animals that call the forest home: you can easily spot birds and squirrels and may even encounter wild boars and deer which live in extensive enclosures in the forest. You can also stay in the centre of Fürth to enjoy a few hours in the countryside. Between the river meadows, small ponds, and parks, there are several ‘green hidden places’ waiting to be discovered by you.

All of the routes are beautiful when trees are green during summer. But, it’s also worth walking through Fürth in autumn, when the leaves come alive with colour. Meanwhile, in winter, mist wafts over the meadows in the early morning, creating a mystical atmosphere. When the sun comes out, the frosty meadows glisten, competing with summer’s beauty.
