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.

We arrived on a very hot day to Eva waiting for us with some cold water, some fruit and a lovely welcome. The apartment is on the 5th floor, so not for the unfit! The kitchen was very well equipped; we even had a soda-stream! We cooked a couple of nights and found everything we needed for our meals: even the knives were sharp. Tea and coffee, salt and pepper (and some spices) were provided. There are two bedrooms, a twin and a double, and a single bed in the living room area. The beds and bedding were very comfortable. The bathrooms were also very well equipped, and there were plenty of towels for the four of us. The windows are all velux, with exterior shades to help in the hot summer months, and blackout blinds to make it nice and dark for sleeping. There is traffic noise; the apartment is on a busy wide street in a city centre. The apartment is large, light and airy, I would recommend.

We were made to feel at home by Werner and Nona who were always ready to help with advice on the local amenaties,and things to see and do........if you like going to a outdoor pool the one on the south side of the city is a must.
