On almost 500 km, we hike the Franconian Mountains Trail through the Franconian Forest Nature Park, the Fichtel Mountains, Franconian Switzerland and the Franconian Alps.

While hiking through the four popular hiking areas of the Franconian Forest Nature Park, the Fichtel Mountains, Franconian Switzerland and the Franconian Alps, we discover the diversity of the landscape and the numerous cultural sights along the way. In addition to landscape impressions and mountain peaks with panoramic views, we pass many castle ruins, churches and castles that are worth visiting. In the Franconian Forest, the tour begins in Untereichenstein and ends in Hersbruck in the Franconian Alps. We divide the tour into six stages. The highlights among the sights include the Festival House and the Hermitage in Bayreuth, the Ochsenkopf, the Schneeberg peak, Fichtelsee, Rabenstein Castle and much more to delight the explorer and hiker's heart.

Wir sind den Weg von Aufseß bis Püttlach gelaufen auf 2,5 Tage. Leider gab es oft Teer und Feldwege. In der Sonne also nicht so zu empfehlen. Der WEg ist meist gut beschildert und leicht begehbar. Gebirge haben wir leider nicht bewusst wahrgenommen. Da der Weg immer wieder an der Zivilisation vorbei führt, ist Wasser nicht im Übermaß mitzuführen. Beim nächsten Mal in der Fränkischen Schweiz werden wir uns aber für einen anderen Weg entscheiden
