Relaxing in the nature

The municipality Dechsendorf belongs since 1972 to Erlangen and is a local recreation area surrounded by a beautiful landscape of meadows, forests and lakes. During the summer time, the great lake of Dechsendorf invites to swimming, boating and relaxing on the lawns or to open air concerts like "Classic at the Lake". In the winter time, the lake is an ideal place for ice skating or curling.

Who wants to climb higher can reach in short time the natural wonders of the Franconian Switzerland. With a summer-toboggan-run, lots of hiking paths and a marvellous cave this area provides a huge range of leisure attractions for the whole family.

Party the Franconian way

Love of life and public festivals are very important in Franconia. Every summer the Erlanger Bergkirchweih invites to hilariously parties. In several beer gardens with lots of roller coasters and culinary attractions one of the most beautiful public festivals of Germany takes place.
