Leisure tips

Gunzenhausen - the heart of the Franconian Lake District.

At the heart of the Franconian Lake District, you will find Gunzenhausen Youth Hostel. Its location near the Altmühlsee lake is ideal for discovering the great outdoors - or the idyllic villages of central Franconia. We offer excursions to the Franconian Lake District and to the cities of central Franconia, such as Nuremberg or Rothenburg ob der Tauber, in cooperation with the state association for the protection of birds (Landesbund für Vogelschutz) and competent local travel agencies. Gunzenhausen itself, with its museums and the newly refurbished market place, is a good place for a leisurely stroll or indulging oneself in one of the street cafés.
