Blick ins Wiesenttal/Fränkische Schweiz

Our region is one of the most valued vacation areas in Germany. The so-called "Franconian Switzerland" is a hiker's paradise, and appeals to culture-friends as well. The region attracts hikers, climbers, aviators (hang-gliders, gliders, airplanes), bikers (racing bikes / mountain bikes), fossil collectors, cave-enthusiasts and castle-spotters, and nature lovers in general.
