Hiking and bicycle riding. The gently rolling hills around the Hesselberg provide plenty of varied bicycle and hiking trails. Forest, fields and meadows define the landscape. The meandering River Wörnitz and “the Mountain“ give the countryside its special attraction.

There are naturally many well-signposted bicycle and hiking trails in the area. These pass by orchards, carp ponds and through our colourful Middle-Franconian towns and villages.
