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.

Beautiful apartment

5 of 5
I stayed here for 4 nights with my husband and 3 year old. The apartment is really great, very spacious, modern, well furnished and equipped. We really liked it. It was very hot when we were there so having fans in the bedrooms was much appreciated! Very convenient to have the U Bahn stop directly opposite, and close enough to the centre to walk everywhere. Communication with the owner was great. Only downsides - a lot of stairs to climb! And there were a lot of men hanging around outside - there wasn't any problem but I think I might have felt anxious if I'd been going out alone at night.

Superb modern apartment ideally situated for walking into Nurnberg old town.

5 of 5
Terrific apartment, clean and well furnished. Easy ten minute walk through beautiful park into Nurnberg old town. The owners were really helpful and allowed us use of their bicycles which meant we could easily get around on the many safe cycle paths. Nurnberg is a superb place, with lots of fascinating museums and pretty streets along with some great places to eat. We would highly recommend a stay here and we hope to return one day.
