Franconian Lakes
Fränkisches Seenland

The Franconian Lakes, which celebrated their 25th anniversary in 2011, are located 20 to 30 kilometres in the south of Nuremberg and provide best recreational and holiday opportunities for the whole family, may it be in or on the water – sailing, surfing, swimming, diving, boating, fishing and a lot more.

Ideal leisure facilities with extensive lawns at magnificent beaches, shores for sailing, surfing and swimming and a wide network of well-signposted hiking and cycling paths around the lakes or from lake to lake make this lake district so interesting for the active holiday maker. But you may also just be lazing in the sun, on or by the water.

Shipping lines at “Altmühlsee” and the unique Trimaran MS Brombachsee at “Großer Brombachsee” offer you a lot of diversion and relaxation from other perspectives.

The 360-degree panorama view allows you to travel to our Franconain lake district in virtual reality.
Besides sporting activities, our Franconian Lakes boast incredible cultural landscapes. Historical evidence from the past, interesting natural and architectural monuments, mighty castles and magnificent palaces, as well as ancient churches and monasteries will bring history to life.

Enjoy Franconian hospitality at one of the numerous cozy and inexpensive restaurants to round off a perfect recreative day or to take a rest and enjoy refreshments.

More than 9, 000 beds at almost 1, 700 hotels, inns, bed & breakfasts, as well as holiday homes and apartments, together with a good price-performance, have turned our Franconian Lakes into one of the most popular holiday regions in Germany. The countless guests were not only satisfied, but enthusiastic about this new holiday landscape with its generous and ideal leisure facilities.

We wish you a pleasant stay!
