Make a holiday rental in Franconia, Germany your home away from home

Franconia is a region towards the north of the German federal state of Bavaria. Staying at holiday rentals in Franconia you’ll be in a very diverse part of the country, boasting an inviting mix of history, natural scenery and outdoor recreation for all the family.

Things to do in Franconia, Germany

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 especially daring visitors, it’s considered one of Europe’s rock-climbing hotspots thanks to the limestone. 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.

Another essential place to explore during your visit to Franconia holiday accommodation would be Bamberg, as the entire town is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. There’s a tremendous array of immaculately preserved medieval architecture here, with half-timbered buildings, best represented by the riverside Altes Rathaus.

It was a great location and had all the facilities we needed. It overlooked a park and although we visited in winter it would be great in the warmer months too. We visited the week before Christmas to see the Christmas markets and Nuremberg has such a lovely atmosphere. The markets were amazing and big enough to walk around with our children. We particularly loved the children's market and the rides. Nuremberg itself is a beautiful city and we will visit again. It had great shops and restaurants. The owner of the property was also lovely. She picked us up from the station and even took us to a nearby restaurant as we were all hungry and had arrived late. The underground in Nuremberg is easy to navigate and we visited the Nuremberg trials which was another great experience- very historical. The area around it was also really pretty and would be amazing in the warmer months. We honestly can't say enough how much we loved our stay and the apartment. We have nothing negative to stay. There was 5 of us staying here 2 adults 2 children and one teenager. We would recommend this apartment and the city.

Accomodation was nice, about 30 min. from the fair. Bus station is very close - about 3 minutes by walk and it took about 25 min to U-Bahn station, from where you can go to city center. The nearest Italian restaurant is about 5 min by walk, but it´s closed on Monday, the 2nd restaurant is about 15 min. by walk. We have a good experience with the accomodation, we are going back to Slovakia very satisfied.
