Leisure tips

Feuchtwangen: a city surrounded by recreational areas

Feuchtwangen is located on the Romantic Road, between Rothenburg ob der Tauber and Dinkelsbühl. The Romantic Road is not only famous for the stunningly beautiful towns it passes, but also as a scenic paradise for hikers and cyclists. From Feuchtwangen, it is only a stone's throw to Hesselberg mountain, which offers a fantastic view of the region. Another important attraction is the Franconian part of the "Limes" (UNESCO world heritage site since 2005) and the Roman castra at Ruffenhofen. Just a bit further to the west, the New Franconian Lake District begins, which attracts bathers, windsurfers, cyclists and nature lovers to the Altmühlsee or Brombachsee lakes.
