Franconia – Experience nature, culture
Bamberg – a historic town which has contemporary attractions
The old historic and episcopal town of Bamberg is one of the loveliest towns in Germany. The ‘millennial Gesamtkunstwerk’ of Bamberg’s Old Town was accepted into the UNESCO World Heritage Site List in 1993. Locals and tourists alike appreciate the high quality of life here, the wonderful natural surroundings and fluvial topography are a genuine treasure for all kinds of leisure activities. Bamberg also has a wide range of activities in the art & culture, sports & leisure sectors, and lots of tourist attractions and conference facilities.
With sights such as the Altes Rathaus, E.T.A Hoffmann-Haus and many others, you can enjoy a lovely day in the town. Those of you who are keen on culture will appreciate the top-class programme of concerts, cabaret, smaller-scale performing arts and ever-changing exhibitions. While for those of you who have an interest in activities, on the many cycling and hiking routes there are a great deal of historic buildings, monuments and fantastic natural surroundings to explore.
It is just 35 km from the Hotel "Zum Löwenbräu" to Bamberg. We hope you enjoy a lovely day in this historic town.
In the immediate vicinity of the Hotel "Zum Löwenbräu" there is no shortage of fun available for all the family, with offers to suit everyone. Whether you are looking for fun & activities for young and old, or really want to relax and unwind in a wellness oasis. There are a few spas in the surrounding area which provide rest and recuperation for body and mind too.
There is a fantastic range of leisure facilities close to the hotel.
Franconian Switzerland – a 'pleasure' region which has the romance factor
This tranquil region is situated between Bamberg, Bayreuth and Nuremberg and is around 20 km from the restaurant/brewery "Zum Löwenbräu". Known for its some 1000 caves, romantic castles, the greatest density of breweries and idyllic valley landscape, which – as its name suggests – is somewhat reminiscent of Switzerland.
Franconian Switzerland has an abundance of sights, among them 35 museums and just as many castles. There are almost 1000 caves in this area, of which however only a few are accessible to the public for conservation reasons. There are also two leisure parks and five wildlife parks. The romantic steam railway between Behringersmühle and Ebermannstadt brings you through the loveliest places in the region. Our famous Osterbrunnen are also very much "worth a visit" as is the romantic festival of lights in the winter. You will be enchanted by an agricultural landscape and little villages which have originally maintained timber-framed houses. Head out on an exploratory tour and enjoy what is "Frankish" with all your senses.
There is also a great deal for those of you are interested in sports – mountain biking, climbing, canoeing, as well as golf, tennis and even high ropes courses are just a few of the highlights in this fantastic area. Or you could just experience the beauty of Franconian Switzerland during a leisurely stroll or on a bike ride.
For children a day in the leisure park is certainly one of the biggest and best adventures, which they will be talking about for a long time to come. Four of the best themed parks in Germany are very close to the Hotel "Zum Löwenbräu". You get to experience knights and pirates, a fairy-tale park, and of course all kinds of amusement rides, a toy realm, petting zoos and thousands of other things that will set children’s eyes sparkling. And admittedly, the adults will really enjoy it all too!
The Franconian landscape and its gentle hills is almost ideal for golf courses, some of which are close to the hotel. Switch off, meet nice people, forge contacts, exercise in the fresh air, that is what golf is all about. Head out for the day and enjoy a leisurely game on the course, or after a conference enjoy a game with your friends and colleagues to relax after a work-filled day. All that is not a problem, here in the Hotel "Zum Löwenbräu" there is a fantastic selection of golf courses right in the surrounding area.
Put your skills to the test here and enjoy a sporting competition with your friends and all the family. Often it is not as easy as it might seem to putt the ball past the obstacles. Close to the hotel there are quite a few options to give your ambitions free rein. We are happy to host a victory celebration afterwards in the brewery and restaurant "Zum Löwenbräu" for you.
The historic Franconian metropolis has many facets which are worth further investigation - you certainly won’t get bored here. Countless monuments, for instance there is the town’s landmark, the Kaiserburg which provides a fantastic view across the city of Nuremberg and a museum where medieval times come to life. Many museums like the Germanische Nationalmuseum, the new museum for modern art and design and many more provide a bit of variety.
There is also Dürerhaus, dedicated to probably the most famous son of the town, the multi-talented Renaissance artist and campaigner for humanism and reformation, Albrecht Dürer. This place is much more than a museum – in the painting and printing workshop the artistic techniques from Dürer’s era come to life; guided tours and video installations provide a broad insight into the works the artist created. Definitely worth a visit!
Last but not least, Nuremberg is famous the world over as being a "Christmas town". Nuremberg’s Christmas market is one of the oldest Christmas markets in the world and with its quaint wooden stalls is the epitome of Christmas. The traditional hand-made Christmas decoration and sweet treats such as Spekulatius spiced biscuits and the famous Nuremberg Lebkuchen are just a few of the highlights that you will come across here. Combine a relaxing weekend in the tranquillity of the Hotel "Zum Löwenbräu" with a romantic excursion during the run-up to Christmas to Nuremberg’s Christmas market, which is just 40 km away.
Nuremberg is of course also sought-after in international business too as a trade-fair centre and a conference location. Business during the day, then switch off in the evening and enjoy the peace and tranquillity of a family-run hotel in the country side. Thanks to its convenient location (close to the A3) the Hotel "Zum Löwenbräu" is an ideal for business travellers to stay.
"Big name brands", in particular premium brands from the realm of sport is what you will come across in the outlet centre Herzogenaurach, with superb prices too. The shopping centre is just 15 km away and is a shopping paradise for all sports-lovers and those who are fond of sports clothing, and who want to purchase fantastic branded items at great prices. Definitely worth a detour!
