170 medieval castles, over 1000 large and small caves, romantic mills and a historic 1960s-style steam railway. Regional customs are also cultivated as they always have been. Where is this in Germany? In Bavaria in the Franconian Switzerland region, where there is so much to see and discover than in hardly any other holiday region in our country.

Visitors to Franconian Switzerland experience a unique journey into the past among castles, ruins and stalactite caves. In addition to the rustic charm of the castle landscape, 15 castles also captivate visitors with all their splendour and provide insights into how the lords and ladies lived back then. As a typical karst area, the region is also home to over 1,000 caves. Many of them are rich in dripstones, others show a great wealth of fossil bones. "Back to a bygone era" is also the motto of the Fränkische Schweiz steam railway. Guests experience technology and history up close in historic trains as they travel through the varied landscape of the Wiesental valley.

Franconian Switzerland, the land of castles, caves and delights. A glance at the menus of the regional inns makes it clear why the region more than deserves this name. The restaurateurs always come up with something to pamper the discerning palates of their guests with new culinary delights. Regionality and quality are the top priorities. Varied and versatile, regional and seasonal - this is probably the best way to describe Franconian cuisine. A visit to one of the numerous pubs and restaurants leaves no culinary wish unfulfilled. Whether it's a fine brown trout or carp in a fish restaurant or a crispy Schäuferle, a sweet Küchla or simply a hearty snack with freshly baked country bread and a freshly tapped beer - the visitor decides. The seasonal specialities are also worth trying: Delicious jams and desserts at harvest time in summer, dishes with horseradish during the Hot Weeks in October or dishes refined with barley juice during the Beer Weeks from the beginning of Lent to Beer Day (23 April). Franconian Switzerland, with the highest density of breweries in the world, is only really known by those who have visited a popular beer cellar or tasted different types of beer on a convivial brewery hike.

Climbing in Franconian Switzerland means having a bit of everything. From sunny and shady rocks to well-hidden crags in the forest or directly on the road. Short, crunchy, boulder-heavy routes (without climbing ropes or harnesses) or long, enduring routes. In addition to the classics, such as the Richard Wagner rock, there are always new first ascents in all degrees of difficulty on offer. And even in winter, climbing enthusiasts are drawn to the rock. On the Dachlwand or the Eldorado, athletes can enjoy the warming rays of the sun.

Paul McCartney and Levi Strauss. Where Paul McCartney's bass guitar is at home and Levi Strauss was born - Franconian Switzerland surprises with its unexpectedly diverse museum landscape. Why is the Levi Strauss Museum in Butenheim? The jeans inventor was born in the small town before emigrating to the USA. The violin-making museum in Bubenreuth is also worth a detailed visit. Among other things, you can see an old violin-making workshop and special exhibits such as Paul McCartney's bass guitar or the world's smallest playable guitar.

Bamberg, Bayreuth and Nuremberg. If you're looking for something a little livelier, perhaps a city tour is in order: the world-famous Bamberg Symphony Orchestra is the flagship of the cultural city of Bamberg and is at the centre of a diverse music scene ranging from classical to jazz. Theatre lovers can enjoy the large repertoire of the E.T.A. Hoffmann Theatre, while numerous cabarets and independent theatres provide variety and excitement. Treasures of European rank adorn Bamberg's museum landscape, and a roundelay of modern sculptures enlivens the city's scenery.

Bayreuth is world-famous for Richard Wagner and the Bayreuth Festival. The new Richard Wagner Museum in and around Haus Wahnfried, Wagner's former home on the edge of the Hofgarten, also sets standards. This was created by Margravine Wilhelmine, who left Bayreuth numerous other important sights: In addition to the Margravial Opera House, a Unesco World Heritage Site, the New Palace, the Hermitage with the Old Palace, Orangery, Sun Temple, Grottoes and Water Games, Fantaisie Palace and Park and the Sanspareil Rock Garden.

Kaiserburg and Albrecht Dürer are inseparably linked with Nuremberg, but this city has much more to offer. A multitude of museums, sights and cultural institutions, shopping streets with everything a shopper's heart desires, as well as the harmonious interplay of historic building ensembles, romantic winding alleys and modern architecture make the historic old town a lively centre with atmosphere and flair.

Work out at the Gößweinstein holiday centre. If you prefer a brisker pace and are only happy when you fall into bed for a restful night in your holiday flat, Gößweinstein, the holiday centre of Franconian Switzerland, is just the place for you. Whether hiking, cycling, mountain biking, kayaking or climbing - the idyllic low mountain landscape has the right programme for every guest. Go hiking along castles, caves and ruins, explore the recreation area by bike or relaxed on an e-bike, climb some of Germany's most famous climbing rocks or take up the paddles for kayaking - active holidaymakers get their money's worth in Markt Gößweinstein. Outdoor fans will love the more than 260 kilometres of marked hiking trails and numerous bicycle tours with up to 200 metres of difference in altitude.
