Sunset at the Lake Rothsee
Portrait of Jan
I moved to Nuremberg to study Hotelmanagement. I am exploring the City and its surrounding ever since.


Would you like to escape the hustle of the city for an afternoon? Let me take you on a trip to the lake “Rothsee”! The little natural oasis is located very close to Nuremberg! Let yourselfe be enchanted by the idylle surrounding Nuremberg in the south!

About 25 kilometre in the south of Nuremberg. close by the little city Roth, is Lake Rothsee. Starting from the Hotel VICTORIA, it takes about 35 minutes by car. 

There are multiple public parking areas around the lake.

If you decide to take the public transport instead of a car, I would recommend to take the train to Allersberg, which runs every thirty minutes. From the main train station of Nuremberg it takes approximately fifteen Minutes. Get off at the terminus and take the bus to Hofstetten from there on. Get off at the station “Heuberg – Staatsstraße”. From here on it is only a five minute walk to the south bank of the lake.

Surrounded by nature, the lake with an expanse of water over 210 hectare, is the right spot for everyone to recover and relax. About thirty hectares are nature reserve. 

To offer children a special experience, there are three modern playgrounds at the lake.

The lake is surrounded by a 12 km long lakeside path. Just perfect for a long walk or a bike ride. I recommend to extend the biking trip and to explore the nature, the Franconian landscape and the surrounding lakes. 

The well-kept lawn around the lake offers plenty of space for sun bathing and relaxing after the swim. 

For the physical well-being is also taken care of. Have a look at one of the three beach houses. Cool drinks, delicious ice cream and some snacks help you recover from your walk, your swim and your bike ride!
