Johannesberg area

Hotel restaurant Helbigs Gasthaus is located in Johannesberg, a municipality in Bavaria, Southeastern Germany. The state of Bavaria is known for its historical townscapes. But it has a lot more to offer. Namely: hearty cuisine, great beer, and excellent Franconian wine. It’s all part of the Bavarian way of life. In Franconia, you’ll discover beautiful small-walled towns such as Rothenburg ob der Tauber, which perfectly lends itself for a city stroll. In Munich, you can visit the beer gardens, the Hofbräuhaus, or the Oktoberfest in autumn.  If you’re into hiking, skiing or water sports, the 2963-meter-high Zugspitze (Bavaria’s highest point) will provide you with a breathtaking backdrop for your activities: Alpine mountains and clear blue skies.
