Experience wine with all your senses
Tourismusregion Fränkisches Weinland
Wine and Main point the way here
Franconian wine characterises the region like nothing else: a mild climate, fertile soils and passionate vintners. Activities and experiences centred on Franconia's vines abound, like wine festivals and wine tastings, hikes through the vineyards and new discoveries waiting to be made in the local wine shops.
Franconian wine country is a byword for exceptional culture as well however, like e.g., the Würzburg Residence, the "castle of all castles".
Wine and culture can be experienced here in both relaxed and active ways. For instance, the route of the well-developed Main cycle trail follows along the Main. Thanks to the "Yellow Wave" signs which indicate the embarking, disembarking and service stations, canoeists can "go with the flow" in confidence when on the water. Those who would rather view the Main from above, can choose one of the hiking trails though the vineyards of Franconia's wine country.
These experiences are especially wonderful when combined with the local cuisine - a cuisine, excellently and harmoniously complemented by the local wines.
From April, 20th til June 240th the renowned Franconian asparagus is harvested. It grows particularly well here thanks to the area's sandy soil. Many of the inns and restaurants serve quite special asparagus dishes during this period.
