Holiday Inn - the niu, Hop Forchheim

Local Area

Forchheim Inside! This is where the party starts… at the niu you are amongst friends. With us, you will get to meet locals from the neighborhood and receive the inside scoop on where to be in the city.

Things to do

Pottenstein rock pool

Pegnitzer Straße 35, Pottenstein 91278

Natural and good! About 35 kilometers from the niu Hop is the oldest outdoor swimming pool in Bavaria. The absolutely natural, unchlorinated and picturesque Pottensteiner Felsenbad is framed by a very, very old rock wall. The water is cleaned by a planted natural filter area without any chemicals. But be careful: This outdoor pool, which opened in 1926 (!), Is not for those who like to warm up: nothing is artificially heated here, so the water is freezing cold - but wonderfully refreshing.

Raise the pitchers!

Klosterstraße 20, Weißenohe 91367

You are in Franconia, friends! You MUST try the local beer. We recommend a guided round tour through breathtaking nature - with fantastic stops at five local breweries. It's like a pub crawl in Cologne's Südstadt, only nicer. Your hosts are five traditional private breweries, all of which have one thing in common: a love of the hop drink and the culinary arts. Five recommendations, five exquisite culinary stops, five drinking fun! What a day!

Walk of Beer

Along the "WALK OF BEER" in Forchheim, stars like in the "Walk of Fame" in Hollywood invite you to discover them. They mark legendary breweries that have characterised the townscape for centuries. Originally, beer was brewed in the old town centre and stored in the Kellerwald forest. The brewing industry flourished around 1850 and grew until 1938. Today there are still three family-run breweries and 23 beer cellars. Each star contains a QR code for more detailed information on the breweries.
