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.

Places to visit on holiday in Franconia, Germany

The city of Augsburg is within driving distance of Franconia self-catering accommodation and boasts a number of interesting sights.

Also in the centre is the birthplace of Marxist writer Bertolt Brecht, the 17th Century Rathaus and Renaissance Fugger Stadtpalast, from the 1500s.

Weather in Franconia, Germany

At Franconia holiday rentals you can expect a Continental Climate, which means warm weather in the summer months, when temperatures often get up to 30 degrees in July and August. Winters tend to very chilly here, with sub-zero conditions common from December to February.

We enjoyed our stay in Schönwald a lot. We made a lot of the trips that the caring and helpfull owner recommended us swimming in open air pool and lake, walks in the woods, Felsenlabyrint Luisenburg, excursions to Czech Republic, dinner in Altes Pfarrhaus... Our kids (2 and 4 years old) had lots of fun just by exploring all corners of the house and large garden. Lots of privacy for meals in the garden.

What a beautiful area - driving thru’ the lovely little towns and villages on minor roads was the best – rolling hills, autumnal colours, a real delight. The bigger towns/cities are well worth a visit – Bamberg, Wurzburg, Rothenberg, Nurnberg, usw. The area is at least as good as the Black Forest - shame that so few of us Brits have “discovered” Franconia. The flat is one of the best and the most reasonable we’ve stayed in – well equipped, very clean, home from home, (wie zu Hause) a real joy to have the cheery glow of the wood burning stove to come home to each evening. Our hosts, Margit and Manfred were most welcoming – thank you Manfred for getting the train tickets for our trip to Nurnberg. The copious info’ on towns, areas and activities in different languages was most useful in planning our next day forays – a lot of work obviously went into that. In short, one of our best holidays on the Continent due in no small part to our hosts, Margit and Manfred and their lovely holiday home.
