Jean Paul trail

Jean Paul Weg Wanderung mit Landrat Hübner © Regionalmanagement Bayreuth

The hiking trail touches the Franconian forest and Franconian Switzerland. The trail was continued in 2012 to Sansparail and has length of 200 km.

You encounter Jean Paul‘s legacy still today in many ways. In the resi­dence- and house of his death in the Frie­de­rich­strasse, the tomb in the city ceme­tery, the central monu­ment on the Jean Paul place , the “Roll­wen­zelei” on the way to the Eremi­tage. He came to the restau­rant of the Roll­wen­zelei almost daily to write. You find his legacy in the palaces and parks of the Eremi­tage and Fantaisie, which were places of some of his most beau­tiful scenes in his novels. All these places are connected through the Jean Paul way which leads through a large part of upper Fran­conia. The Bayreuth Jean Paul way was put on record in 2010.

Nume­rous infor­ma­tive plaques on diffe­rent places let the reader dive into the life and works of the poet.
