Franconian Lakes
The Franconian Lakes, 30km south of Nuremberg, are one of Bavaria's most beautiful recreation areas. At the heart of the region are Lake Altmühlsee, Lake Brombachsee and Lake Rothsee. This holiday region offers ideal conditions for watersports enthusiasts, who can go swimming, diving, sailing, windsurfing, boating and angling. The lakes are set in a landscape of almost endless meadows, and hills covered in coniferous and mixed forests and large pine forests.
Altmühl valley
One of the largest nature reserves in Germany is known for its diversity, unspoilt riverine landscape and charming tributary valleys. Rivers and flower-filled meadows, bizarre dolomite cliffs and fragrant juniper slopes, striking geological formations and mysterious caves, castles and palaces, romantic little towns and villages all combine into a picturebook scenery. The region offers idyllic conditions for boating, cycling and climbing.
