Birdwatching sites

It is one priority of Birding Franconia to offer any visitor of Franconia sufficient information on where you have the best chances for excellent birding. Below there is a list of the hotspots of Franconia, although there are, of course, more noteworthy sites than those listed below. Hopefully, new site descriptions will soon be available, but it is mostly very difficult due to the lack of information. If you´re interested in a special target species see here.


If you have ideas for new sites or additional information on the already existing ones, feel free to contact me.
