Don’t be upset with the 11,000 residents that call Fürth in the Odenwald their home. This little known secret town is pretty awesome and who could blame them for wanting to keep it all to themselves.
The weather within this area of the Odenwald tends to be a bit on the cooler side, so if you don’t mind it to be a bit chilly in summer or snowy during winter then Fürth is just right for you.
No matter the weather or the season Fürth LOVES a good time and just about anytime throughout the year. The eleven villages of this town hold everything from masked balls to spring concerts. They also have a Spring Celebration, a Summer Celebration, a Fairytale Night, a May Celebration, and a Summer Celebration.
Just when you think you’ve done partied enough there’s the Fish Festival, the Johannismarkt, the Village Festival, a Kerwe (church) Festival, the Michaelismarkt, and a Harvest Festival. I can’t leave out Oktoberfest, and both the Christmas Festival and Christmas concert.
Inasmuch as there are countless festivals and markets going on in Fürth, that’s how many sporting activities and sites there are to see and do.
If heights don’t bother you get up for a hot air balloon ride. If you rather have your feet planted firmly on the ground, walk the many trails that meander through the many meadows and ponds. Take a guided forest tour to make the most out of your trip through the Odenwald — it’s more than pretty and brings lots of visitors to go camping.
Walk around the Bergtier Park (a nature animal park) with the kids and listen to them get all excited about the animals.
When you got a hankerin’ for some traditional style sightseeing go see the 18th century St. John the Baptist church and many of the framework houses that have been here from the 18th and 19th centuries.
It’ll be hard to figure out exactly why you’d want to come to Fürth (Odenwald). Don’t question it — just enjoy it for all its worth! ;-)
