Auch wenn Sie Ihre Kinder nur ungern vom Ferienhof wegbekommen, sollten Sie doch einige Ausflüge einplanen. Die Umgebung des Franzenhofs bietet dafür zu viele Highlights.
Für alle, die sich nicht entscheiden können zwischen Meer und Bergen ist der Bodensee mit seiner mediterranen Leichtigkeit und den massiven Alpen dahinter das ideale Urlaubsziel. Einen Tag an der Uferpromenade flanieren, beim Kibele in Hagnau das beste Eis am Bodensee probieren und mit dem Tretboot auf den Wellen schippern ist genauso möglich wie am nächsten Tag die Wanderschuhe schnüren und binnen einer Stunde mit der Bergbahn in luftige Höhen schweben und den See von oben aus einer ganz anderen Perspektive zu erleben.
Und zwischen Ferienhof und Bodensee ist alles möglich:
