Frankenjura is a climbing area in south-eastern Germany. The nearest airports are Nuremberg (0,5hrs), Munich (1,5hrs) and Frankfurt (2hrs). To get most of your trip a car is essential, since the cliffs are spread over a big area. All cliffs within the area are divided into different zones. Usually there are signs at the base of the cliff and in the guidebook. Zone 1 no climbing. Zone 2 "status quo" climbing on existing routes is allowed, but new routes are not. Zone 3 climbing and opening of new routes is allowed, but excessive cleaning of vegetation will lead to trouble, usually your bolts will be removed. Because of nesting birds some seasonal closures occur from Jan. 1st until July 31th. If the nest is abandonded or the breeding was unsucessful the climbing ban will be lifted much earlier.
