Experience, indulgence & relaxation: What makes holidays in Franconia so unique

Franconian Switzerland is located in the centre of the city triangle of Bayreuth, Bamberg and Nuremberg. With its unique mountain and hilly landscape as well as its fantastic nature, it is considered one of the most interesting and varied holiday regions in Germany.

Besides the breathtaking nature and the wonderful landscape, Franconia and especially Upper Franconia is known as a region of indulgence and beer. Not only the largest density of breweries in the world awaits the many holidaymakers here, but also countless regional specialities such as the world-famous Nuremberg bratwursts, distillates, wines and of course the Franconian Schäuferla.
