Wandern in Nürnberg

Von der Fränkischen Schweiz über das Altmühltal bis hin zum Fichtelgebirge - die Wandergebiete in und um Nürnberg sind vielfältig. Mit dem Rucksack raus auf's Land oder in die Berge, um die Natur zu Fuß zu erkunden ist Luxus, der ganz preiswert ist und sich schnell umsetzen lässt: einfach losgehen. Der große Vorteil beim Wandern ist, dass man Strecken kennenlernen kann, die mit dem Auto oder dem Fahrrad nicht erreichbar sind. Schmale Wege, große Wurzeln oder steinige Böden sind zu Fuß wunderbar zu bewältigen. Das Leben entschleunigt, wenn man dem Gesang der Vögel in den Wäldern lauscht, scheue Rehe in der Lichtung beobachtet und das Rascheln der Blätter die Hintergrundmusik spielt.

Nuremberger Land, east of Nuremberg, is made for hiking trips. It lies at an elevation of 300 to 650 meters over sea level. The gentle hills, often crowned with castles, are easy to climb.
