Birdwatching in Franconia

Welcome to my website!

Here you´ll find anything concerning birdwatching in Franconia.


What is Franconia? Franconia is roughly said the northern part of Bavaria in Southern Germany. The most people coming here are interested in the culture, in the old cities like Nuremberg and Bamberg or in the magnificent landscapes. 

The most however don´t know that birding is very exciting here as well. In fact there are only few local birders in Franconia and there is not much known of the birdlife here. However many threatened and rare birds like Little Bittern, Montagu's Harrier and Ortolan Bunting are breeding here because of the variegated landscapes.


On this website I want to show you that Franconia is ornithologically very interesting. You´ll find here detailed site descriptions of some hotspots and information on how to find a species you´re interested in.
