The Swabian-Franconian Forest Nature Park has something for everyone, from meadows and vineyards reminiscent of the Mediterranean to rugged forest ravines and the UNESCO World Heritage Roman Limes.
Whether you're roaming through forests and fields, enjoying the orchard blossom, exploring cliffs and caves or immersing yourself in local history, the great outdoors awaits together with a broad spectrum of natural and cultural attractions – and all right on the doorstep of Stuttgart. This is a place where everyone can enjoy nature: hikers, for example, will love the extensive network of trails, especially the St. James' Pilgrimage Way and the Mill Trail. The natural surroundings can also be taken in by bicycle or e-bike, and special mountain bike trails will get the adrenaline pumping. The world of the Romans can be explored at the UNESCO World Heritage Roman Limes, the boundary of the Roman empire, while historical flour mills, sawmills and oil presses bear testimony to traditional skills. Members of the Naturparkteller restaurant association offer regional specialities for lovers of fine food and drink, while the nature park's markets are good places to pick up local produce and crafts. The tour guides, who act as the nature park's ambassadors, put on exciting events on Sundays and public holidays showcasing the local cultural and natural attractions. A wealth of family-friendly and wheelchair-accessible activities is also available. The nature park centre in Murrhardt, with its Nature Park Experience Show, provides a good introduction to the great outdoors. So whatever your plans for a holiday or a day trip, the Swabian-Franconian Forest Nature Park has plenty to offer everyone.
