Unique to the area, these granite crags offer some diversity to your Bavarian experience. Riding the border of Germany, these crags get lost in the tradion that these border towns are engrossed in. With plenty of crags to choose from, this may have merit to become a destination. The Bayerisher Wald is a large forest in Eastern Bavaria that is a German national park. The park has a website in English: nationalpark-bayerischer-wald....
To the northeast this area spills over into the Frankenjura areas.

Much of the climbing is in Niederbayern (lower Bavaria). Niederbayern is one of the most conservative areas of Germany, and Nazi controversy has bubbled up at times. On occasion, researchers bring more criminals to justice, and Nazi gold to authorities. The people are generally helpful and warm, and the climbing communities are tight-knit and well organized.

Getting There 

South-East of Nürnberg are Regensburg, Cham, and Passau comprising larger towns near which are the crags. Amberg, Grafenau and Zwiesel are smaller towns near crags.
