The Franconian Mountain Path, with a total length of around 430 km, stretches from the Franconian Forest to the Pegnitztal valley in the Nürnberger Land district. When travelling along it, you will sometimes feel like you are on an enchanted path, as you encounter bizarre cliffs, such as the Walberla, castles shrouded in legend, ruins of castles and ancient forests. Highlights of the sights include the festival theatre and hermitage of Bayreuth. By the way: the Franconian Mountain Path is considered a “premium trail” by Wanderbares Deutschland, a site dedicated to hiking. Arrive by train to Bayreuth, take the bus towards Bischofsgrün, and then it’s off on the Franconian Mountain Path.
