The historic wine trading town Kitzingen is located in the far west of the Nuremberg metropolitan region and in the south of the Main Franconia regiopole region. Kitzingen is located in the Maingau climate zone, the driest area in Bavaria, which, together with the limestone soils, is particularly beneficial for viticulture.
For leisure activities in nature, on foot, by bike or by car, the nearby low mountain range of the Steigerwald and the main triangle are particularly suitable. There is a well-developed network of cycling and hiking trails.
The Main metropolis of Würzburg can be reached in less than half an hour by public transport or by car. Nürnberg (Nuremberg) can be reached by train or car in just over an hour. Here are some highlights from the diverse range. We are always at your disposal for information and tips.

The Hills of the Steigerwald
“Hopp, me genn amol nauf’n Schwanberch” is the expression of a quick decision when the Kitzinger wants to get some fresh air on Sunday afternoon after dinner. The Schwanberg is the first foothill of the Steigerwald with some hiking trails and a cafe. The Steigerwald treetop path near Ebrach with its observation tower can be reached in 15 minutes by car. It will take about 1.5 hours by bike. Ultimately, the Steigerwald, as a richly wooded low mountain range, offers a multitude of natural and cultural experiences that are waiting to be explored by bike, on foot or by car.
