Beer Hiking Trails in Franconia

This is a list of hiking trails in Franconia that take you by not only great scenery but also small breweries, often very hard to reach by public transportation. They are generally put together using non-beery trails that happen to run close to or by neighboring breweries. It’s in alphabetical order so in no way reflects favorites. You can do them as stand alone circuits or piece them together to make longer multi-day trips as I did on my recent four-day trip.

    1. Yes, Laura. There are links to the tours on just about every page. Just follow them for details. I mostly do them on weekends and generally to the two most accessible trails. If you are interested in something other than those two, just drop me a mail and let me know.

  1. Hello. We may spend a few days in and around Pottenstein (family of 4 which includes a 7 and 12 year old). Held-Brau looks to be a short drive away and I see a few beer cellars /pubs within town but would you recommend any beer gardens that are in this area with playgrounds so kids have activity while we try a beer or two?
