The Rafting Village Marktrodach
Rafting, flying, hiking and celebrating - Marktrodach is always worth a visit
In the middle of the Franconian Forest, where the Franconian Way and the Rafters' Way meet, is the young, but rich in history rafter village of Marktrodach. Today, the hospitable and open-minded citizens live with and within their history.
Not only the many splendid houses of former rafter masters reflect the tradition of this profession. You may find the best insight into this old profession in the Rafter Museum (Flößermuseum) in Unterrodach.
Marktrodach does, however, not only offer tradition and history, but alsol provides a broad variety of other challenges, such as paragliding, hang gliding or an alternative trial lesson in an aeroplane or a glider at the airfield Kreuzberg! Those who prefer a rather quiet ambience may enjoy a beautiful hike or bicycle tour passing the meadows along the riverside of the Rodach.
A paradisiac hike up to the Radspitz-Tower, which offers a unique view of the whole area, is only one of the named destinations in Marktrodach.
Furthermore, there are various inns which pamper their guests' palate with international and regional delicacies. Marktrodach is the ideal place to relax and recreate at any time of the year, no matter whether you prefer farm holidays or wellness weekends in a romantic ambience. Rafting, Flying, Celebrating - Marktrodach is always worth a visit.
