The largest vacation destination in Franconia extends from the Nature Park Frankenhöhe to the Romantic Route. The Romantic Franconia lets you enjoy the sunny side of life.
The area around the Nature Park Frankenhöhe is one of sunniest regions in all of Germany. So bicycling, hiking, and family vacations are very popular here. And on top of the weather, you can enjoy a breathtakingly beautiful landscape: The pristine hillsides provide habitat for a large variety of plants and animals and, on occasion, you may encounter a shepherd and his flock. It doesn’t get much more romantic than that.
The Romantic Road zigzags right through this lovely landscape, past historical towns such as Rothenburg o.d. Tauber, or the medieval town of Dinkelsbühl, or to Ansbach, the “City of Franconian Rococo.”
