Golden autumn in the Franconian Forest. Bright colours, the leaves rustling under your feet and the sun sending its warming rays through the treetops once more. Enjoy the golden season and fresh air during hikes or outings from Bad Stebener Hof hotel into the surrounding area. For example, there are several hiking trails or circular hiking trails around the nearby Höllental valley, three of which lead round Bad Steben through the Franconian Forest’s magnificent landscape.
Visit Bamberg with its historic "New Residence" on the cathedral square. From 1602 it served as a residence for the prince bishops of Bamberg, from 1803 it was the royal residence. The abdicated Greek royal couple Otto I. and his wife Amalie spent their exile here and the first democratic Bavarian constitution was adopted in the Hall of Mirrors.
Spend nice hours in the Eremitage in Bayreuth. A true jewel of the rococo period is the landscape park, which was designed for 18th century horticulture. Century a prime example.
