Active vacation in the
Franconian Switzerland

Franconian Switzerland is probably one of the most varied low mountain ranges in Germany. Mystical caves, ancient castles or spectacular rock formations - you never know what attraction the trail has in store around the next bend. This makes the region a dream destination for all active vacationers. The huge network of hiking trails offers suitable tours of varying lengths.

Or would you prefer to discover the Franconian region by bike? Three mountain bike tours start directly in Heiligenstadt, so you can set off straight from the hotel. You can hire bikes from our partner "Fahrrad Dresel" or have your own bike checked.

If you fancy a cultural experience, the surrounding towns are within easy reach. The world heritage city of Bamberg is approx. 20 km away, the Wagner city of Bayreuth is approx. 35 km away and Nuremberg with its Imperial Castle and the Germanic National Museum is approx. 60 km away.

And if you are still not exhausted after an eventful excursion, you can end the day in our in-house fitness studio "Fit am Fluss" with a little equipment training or a sauna session.
