Just follow the red signposts. That's all you have to do if you're venturing off along the much-acclaimed "Frankenweg". The 500-kilometre route winds from the Franconian Forest through to the Altm├╝hl Valley Nature Park. The stretch that runs between Kronach and Kulmbach is ideal for long-distance runners. Starting at the birthplace of the German painter, Lucas Cranach the Elder, it winds through a breathtaking mountainous landscape and picturesque river valleys, through Fr├Âschbrunn to Kulmbach. At the end, you can reward your efforts with stunning views and Franconian delicacies from the impressive "Rosenberg" fortress or the "Zum Fr├Âschbrunna" guest house.
