It is said, that those with whom he is pleased, God sends them to Bad Bocklet. This is how you could rephrase this old German hiking song, when hiking on the 70 kilometers of very well developed hiking trails around Bad Bocklet. A large cure park with a beautiful, well-kept garden, fountains and sculptures, one of the most beautiful miniature golf courses in Germany and an excellent reputation among spa guests characterize Bad Bocklet. The Biedermeierbad offers visitors at first rest and relaxation. Built in the 19th century, these historic cure facilities, still make up the special charm of the small market town. From here, hikers can start their tours, which will take them back to the starting point in Bad Bocklet on excellently signposted trails.
With the guest card you can travel to all spa towns by bus free of charge from May to October. Even if you want to get further away from the hotel during a bicycle tour or want to start from one of the other bathing towns, you can comfortably use the spa bus.

Franconia is known for its wayside shrines in the fields, meadows and villages. In the market Bad Bocklet, especially in the district Aschach, the Heimat- und Wanderverein has taken care of this traditional and worth preserving culture. The association would like to draw attention to this tradition with a wayside shrine hiking trail.
When walking the "Grosse Runde", the interested hiker will pass by all the monuments set up in the districts. This round, with a total length of about 16 km, takes the form of an eight with an intersection at the fountain in Aschach and can therefore easily be divided into two stages.
In the first part, we remain largely in a free field, whereby the scenic beauty of this section of the route is particularly noteworthy.
In the second part of the round the hiker stays mainly in the two villages, apart from the route south around the Altenberg... The round starts in Aschach in the former castle of the Henneberger. This beautiful castle is actually worth a day trip on its own!
