52,000 hectares of forest are an announcement, especially since the operators of the Franconian Forest Nature Park insist that their cultural landscape, which has grown for centuries, not only any Forest is. "Magical" they call it and "also a little mysterious". This is not only due to the fact that the habitats of native plants can spread there, arnica, bearwort or various orchid species.

The wildlife in the Franconian Forest also has something romantic and fairytale-like about it: the black stork feels at home here, as do dippers, kingfishers and various species of bats. Above all, however, it is the numerous hiking trails deep into the green forest that make the Franconian Forest Nature Park seem both magical and mysterious. "Listening to silence", "Breathing expanse" and "Understanding the forest" are the central themes of the 242-kilometer long Frankenwaldsteig long-distance circular hiking trail, and this already announces what awaits you in the Frankenwald Nature Park: Well-being. Silence. Few people. Unspoiled nature. And on top of that: down-to-earth Franconian cuisine.
