With green surroundings and a rich history, Schweinfurt has plenty to discover. This town in Lower Franconia in Bavaria offers art and culture in abundance, as well as the Rhön, Steigerwald, and Haßberge mountains, which are a true paradise for hikers. In this Collection, we present hikes which combine lively cities and beautiful nature.

When you arrive in the centre of Schweinfurt, you quickly realise that this city has a lot to offer. You can visit excellent exhibitions in art galleries, stroll around the old city wall, marvel at historical buildings, and travel back in time in the charming Zurich quarter. When you get tired, you can take a break at one of the numerous cafes and beer gardens, around which city life runs.

However, whilst the city is full of things to see and do, it’s worth taking time to discover the surrounding nature too. The region is famous for Franconian wine, Bavarian beer, crisp asparagus and fresh herbs. While you can taste all this in one of the many local inns, we also want to give you the opportunity to see where these treasures come from.

Explore the vast vineyards with their old vines and typical quaint houses; follow the scent of wild garlic in magical forests; stumble upon an old ruin, a chapel, or stone cross; and take a dip in the cool waters of a beautiful lake. Variety is exactly what makes this region so special – it’s up to you to find it.
