Vacation rentals in Franconia

A holiday apartment in Franconia's metropolises

At least as diverse as Franconia itself are the holiday resorts in the region, which extend over large parts of Northern Bavaria to Hesse, Thuringia and Baden-Württemberg. Most holiday apartments and vacation rentals are located in the larger cities of Franconia, including Nuremberg, Würzburg, Bayreuth, Coburg and Bamberg. The offer ranges from apartments in the centre to cosy holiday apartments on the outskirts to spacious estates with enclosed plots. Not least because of the good traffic connections, a apartment in this location is suitable as an optimal starting point for your holiday in Franconia.

Vacation rentals in the countryside

Would you like to relax and escape the stress of the big city, or simply set up your tent in the green heart of Franconia to explore the beauty of the region on your own? Then a vacation rental in one of the countless smaller communities is the ideal solution for you. Among the hundreds of holiday apartments you will find the right offer in any case, especially as you will find everything from the cosy one-room apartment near the Altmühlsees to the remote country house at the foothills of the Fichtelgebirge that the holidaymaker's heart desires.

Travelers and Activities

Franconia for hikers

Franconia can justifiably be described as a hiking paradise, as the 16 certified hiking areas are covered by a network of more than 40,000 kilometres of hiking trails. These include 18 long-distance hiking trails, some of which bear the German hiking seal for premium trails. These take you not only around the world in terms of kilometres, but also through the unique world of Franconia with its imposing low mountain ranges, idyllic river valleys, dense forests and medieval villages that seem to have fallen out of time.

Franconia for culture lovers

Culture lovers will also get their money's worth during a holiday in Franconia, because in addition to the historic old towns of Nuremberg and Bamberg, there are many other sights of cultural and historical value. Those interested in history are particularly drawn to the picturesquely situated castles and in particular to the remains of the Roman Limes, which is still visible or has even been reconstructed in large parts of the country. An absolute highlight for friends of music theatre are also the Bayreuth Richard Wagner Festival, which takes place every year from the end of July to the end of August.

Things to know

Climate in Franconia

Franconia's location between the Fichtelgebirge and the Franconian Alb gives the region a humid, cool temperate climate, although the climatic conditions vary between the individual regions. While the lowest temperatures can be found near the Fichtelgebirge and in the Franconian Forest both in summer and in winter, mercury in Lower Franconia often reaches the 30 degree Celsius mark. Lower Franconia in particular is also one of the sunniest regions in Germany.

Best travel time

The main travel season for Franconia is between June and August. In this period the highest temperatures prevail in the entire region, so that thanks to average daytime temperatures of 23 degrees Celsius nothing stands in the way of a bathing holiday at the lakes of Franconia. Apart from the peak travel season, spring and autumn are also suitable for hiking tours and city trips. October is the best month for long hikes due to its average of only seven rainy days.

Franconia not only has the highest brewery density in Germany, but also the highest regional density of breweries in the world.

Top 5 travel tips Franconia

Nuremberg Christkindl Market

With over two million visitors annually, the Nuremberg Christmas Market is not only one of the best-known, but also one of the largest Christmas markets in the world. More than 200 stands fill the squares and alleys of the old town and entice visitors with traditional gingerbread, fruit bread, Christmas tree decorations and mulled wine. Especially for this travel time you should book your holiday apartment in Nuremberg early due to the large international demand.

Bamberg Old Town

Bamberg is not only known for its beer tradition, but above all for its old town, which, according to UNESCO, is the largest intact historical town centre in Germany. The three-unit city centre with its sacred mountain town around the imperial cathedral, the gardener's town and the island town between the arms of the river Regnitz represents the development of medieval civilization like hardly any other place in Germany. Especially impressive is the Old Town Hall in the middle of the river.

Playmobil Funpark

In the Playmobil Funpark a few kilometres west of your vacation rental in Nuremberg, the little holidaymakers in Franconia will get their money's worth and can travel the worlds from their children's rooms themselves. Open from mid-March to mid-November, the park features eight major theme areas and offers 20 action-packed attractions including power paddle boats, rafting and a life-size knight's castle. If you want to take it a little slower after all the excitement, you can use the indoor play arena to create your own fantasies with countless Playmobil toys.

Franconian cuisine

Those who like hearty food will love the Franconian cuisine and enjoy the numerous sausages and meat specialities of the region. In addition to sour tips, Franconian fried sausages and the traditional Schäufele, the culinary variety also includes desserts such as Nuremberg gingerbread, which has been known in the region since the 15th century.

Franconian red wine hiking trail

In addition to beer, whose tradition is more pronounced in Franconia than in any other place, Lower and Middle Franconia in particular are characterised by their more than 1,200-year winegrowing tradition. The best way to experience the variety of the different drops is on the Franconian Red Wine Trail, which stretches over several daily stages between Großwallstadt and Bürgstadt.
