High above the ground, nestled in fragrant hay or tucked up in a cosy wooden barrel: in Franconia, nature lovers can stay in some unusual places. First class comfort and airy heights come together in the Seemühle Treehouse Hotel in Spessart-Mainland. Various lovingly designed wooden treehouses with bathrooms, electricity and even WiFi are available, including panoramic views and the sounds of the forest at night. In contrast, the accommodation in the Nuremberg retion is rustic and rural: in the Fischbeck Hay Hotel in Vorra visitors make themselves comfortable in organic hay or a yellow shepherd’s hut underneath a pear tree. They can learn about the surrounding forest on a tour with landlady and herb instructor Margit Leimberger. She provides a wealth of information about the herbs and plants in the meadows, fields and forest.
