Nuremberg would be a good location for your holiday accommodation in Franconia. It’s Bavaria’s second city and has immense historical importance, and is also quite unique in that much of its heritage survived the war. The best place to start would be the city’s historical centre, dominated to the northwest by the castle, which features the five-cornered tower, dating to the 11th Century, making it the oldest remaining structure in the city. Another interesting sight is the medieval city walls, four kilometres of which are still standing today. Another excellent attraction is the zoo, which is located at Schmausenbuck Hill and considered one of the best in Europe.

For outdoor fun, perhaps the best setting for a Franconia self-catering holiday rental would be Franconian Switzerland, which has been a fresh-air getaway for generations of Germans.

For everyone else there’s great scenery for walking and mountain biking, and the rivers in the region offering lovely spots for day-trips. Another highlight of this region is its brewing culture, with practically every community offering its own beer.
