Vacations in Romantic Franconia (Romantisches Franken)

Romantic Franconia: Townscape of Rothenburg ob der Tauber

The Franconian Region extends from the “Romantic Road” in the West until shortly before Nuremberg in the East. It is the largest Franconian vacation region in terms of expanse, and has kept its Ur-Franconian peculiarity through the centuries.

Beautiful Romantic FranconiaThe region is subtitled “from Rangau to the Romantic Road”. That means here are two vacation regions combined into one. The old, grown cultural landscape of Rangau at the gates of Nuremberg with its county seat of Ansbach seamlessly connects with the country around the Romantic Road with its towns Rothenburg ob der Tauber, which offers a glance at the Middle Ages, or Dinkelsbuehl, with its beautifully preserved historic town center.

Particularly charming is the combination of rural idyll, romantic towns with their half-timbered houses, and Hohenzollern residence and county seat Ansbach, the “City of Franconian Rococo”.

Landscape Romantic FranconiaThe beautiful landscape features plenty of sights: It is blessed with fields, meadows, and forests, offering numerous options for leisure and recreation. A large part of this vacation region is part of the Nature Park Frankenhoehe covering 1,100 sq.km. It is one of Southern Germany’s sunniest areas, and one of the thinnest populated regions in Bavaria, with only 60 residents per square kilometer.

This area is located North East to the well-known town Rothenburg ob der Tauber, bordering on the federal state of Baden-Wuerttemberg. Extreme weather fluctuations are rare in this sunny climat. This climate earned federal recognition for the health resort towns Burgbernheim, Dietenhofen, Feuchtwangen, and Schillingfürst. It offers best conditions not only for people but also for many plants and animal species.

It therefore comes as no surprise that the region is crossed by two major tourist routes: The Romantic Road (including Rothenburg, Schillingsfürst, Feuchtwangen, and Dinkelsbühl) and the Castle Road (leading from Rothenburg to Colmberg, Ansbach, and Lichtenau).

So, what are you waiting for: Go ahead and take your vacation to Romantic Franconia; dive right into this blend of idyllic nature and romantic towns.
