Hiking in Franconian Switzerland

Hiking in the land of breweries

After your arrival, the check-in and a walk through our castle park we welcome you in the restaurant to a Bamberger speciality menu. You will stay overnight in the castle Burgellern in spacious comfort double rooms with Italian style furniture.

On the following days we will provide you with extensive information material, hiking and refreshment tips in Franconian Switzerland. Enjoy this picturesque landscape between Bamberg, Bayreuth and Nuremberg. Hand-crafted beers are not an innovation here, but a centuries-old tradition. With over 200 breweries, Franconian Switzerland is the region with the highest density of breweries in the world.

Fortunately for the hiker, Franconian Switzerland is well networked with hiking trails worth seeing.
