Description

This trail will take you on narrow paths in mixed forests, through meadows and fields, and alongside rocks and caves - the landscape and geological highlights string together like pearls on a necklace.

"Fränkische Schweiz" = "Franconian Switzerland" is located in between the old famous cities like Nürnberg, Bamberg and Bayreuth in Franconia (north of Bavaria). It is not a high mountains region, but the name "Schweiz" (Switzerland) indicates that some areas absolutely have alpine character! Yet, alpine risks are not to be expected, as there is a village or a hostelry nearby at every point of the route.

Good footwear with adequate soles is a must, walking poles are helpful. You need to have a sufficient physical shape for about 1000 (positive!) meters of altitude difference over the course of about thirteen miles. The whole tour at a stretch is a challenge for normal runners - for apinists and experienced runners, it's perfect training.
