Helmbrechts is a beautiful city with a small sail airport. The neighboring town Munchberg is also very attractive. From there we go directly to the fabled Fichtelgebirge. The climb to the summit rewarded with very nice outlook. Several times you can look it in the Weißenstädter valley with a beautiful lake. There is the charming town white town with its underground cellars worlds, but also the best gastronomy in the whole region. A visit promises culinary delights!

Helmbrechts is the capital of the Franconian Forest. In the textile city of the craft of weaving and spinning mills has a long tradition. In old former farm houses which are now museums, this craft and the tools needed to become visible. The landscape is in deep valleys (valleys and Rodachtal) and a high mountain range (Döbrachberg and Radspitz) and is the paradise for hikers. The Franconian Forest association maintains a very well marked walking routes and information about attractions along the wayside. Long-distance trails and tourism routes, such as the Via Francigena, the Frankish mountain path and over 100 themed trails are groomed for the best. The calm and the oxygen-rich air offer recreation and endurance. The tourist does not have to travel to the Alps to experience untamed rivers on a raft trip. The rafters Stadtwall rock and the raft museum show how logs on the tributaries of the Main into the Rhine and were then floated into the North Sea. The indoor pool Aquawell, with a 30 degree outdoor pool, steam room and a beautiful lawn makes for a balanced holiday. The hell valley, with its scenic hills, the wooden deer on the Hirschsprung and the viewing platform, King David are an experience in a diverse landscape. A nature trail and a mining trail bring the viewer the diversity of geology and botany on boards closer. Of particular interest here including the major columnar diabase admire. Railway Nostalgia can be experienced before and in the small station in sheet Schmidt hammer. Mines that were already developed under Alexander von Humboldt are to be seen today as mines. Did you know that the first miner's lamp invented by him, and was built? The Green Belt is evidence of former German history. Here, life on the edge of the divided Germany recognizable and renaturalisation a unique landscape is visible. Many factory outlets offer the guest purchases of textiles, curtains, furnishing fabrics or shoes. The Steinach gorge with the single Till Eulenspiegel Museum, the forester jump and the castle ruins Nordeck are particularly an adventure for families with children. The row of windmills covers about 20km and can be mastered by bike or on foot. The Selbitztalradweg extends to 32km with small gradients of Blankenstein to Wüstenselbitz. A return transport is possible with the leisure and Bus for cyclists. Should not be forgotten at last the excellent Franconian cuisine that can be found everywhere here.
