Rehau is another one of those charming Upper Franconian towns. Not much had changed here for years, but with the new Autobahn Rehau’s popularity is growing with visitors coming from near and far.
You’ll find Rehau near the Czech border and the Fichtelgebirge Mountains. With a mountainous terrain and the snowy winters, Rehau is great for those of you who like to ski! Both the cross country variety and the regular sort!
Warmer weather means coming in off the slopes and visiting St. Jobst, the town’s beautiful parish church. Rehau also has a large Urban and Industrial Museum highlighting the town’s cultural history and many goods (like porcelain) that are (or were) produced here. Whether you’re an art lover or not, you’ll most likely enjoy Rehau’s Art Gallery.

OK, with your indoor activities done it’s time to experience Rehau’s outdoors. What? Yeah, Upper Franconia is best enjoyed outdoors like wandering around Rehau’s Sculpture Garden, enjoying an outdoor summer concert, or biking at your leisure around town or on the cycle paths, or strolling along one of the town’s walking trails. Or, just enjoy a leisurely stroll along the river running through town.
Then again, splashing around Rehau’s outdoor swimming pool is a sure bet for fun, too.
Of course, stay closer to the Maxplatz for Rehau’s Heimat- und Wiesenfest (a Homeland Celebration), held every other year. Don’t worry if you’re not here for it, it alternates with the Stadtfest (City Festival). Either way, you’ll have a grand old time filled with laughter, great food (think Weißwurst), and delicious beer.
Afterwards come back inside to the Turkish Baths to enjoy a relaxing massage on those tired muscles so you can come right back out and do it all over again! Those fantastic massages might be another reason Rehau is gaining in popularity. I know I could use one right now! How about you?
