Natural Park in the heart of Europe
Playground for Explorers
The Franconian forest is a gem for tourists. It is secluded, but has a very special charm and it’s a worthwhile holiday destination. In the nature park of the Franconian Forest you’ll find a countryside which is dominated by amazing panoramic views of rich plateaus, densely forested slopes, deep meadow valleys and rocky gorges. The rock formations here are some of the most beautiful in Bavaria.
Mineral sources are found in many places; among these are granite, marble, copper, iron and coal. Rare animal species also roam the forests e.g. the black stork, the Syrian woodpecker and a number of amazing plant species are located here e.g. the area is home to the Arnica flower.
