Current closures

Temporary closures in the Northern and Southern Frankenjura 2021

In the Frankenjura rock climbing area we have closed rocks for a certain time of the year. This is the bird breeding season till end of July.

From January 1st (for some crags), at the latest from February 1st, some crags or parts of crags are temporarily closed for climbing as a measure of bird
protection. Additional crags might be closed in the event of the discovery of further breeding attempts of protected species; we recommend to have a look at the following, regularly updated list.

The closures also encompass a ban of bouldering for all listed crags!

Please take notice of and respect the closures at all costs. Watch out for the relevant signs and barrier tapes! Climbing bans for bird protection can be considered as legal decree and are therefore punishable by law!

Violations can entail not only serious fines, but also more extensive climbing bans, affecting all climbers.

If you do not observe the restrictions, you thereby not only put yourself in harm’s way, but also all the other climbers, because the positive relationship between bird conservationists and climbers, from which both benefit, can be damaged by the wrongdoing of single individuals.

Violations of the restrictions threaten the (currently predominant) flexible solutions, from which primarily climbers benefit.

Attention: The closure periods differ depending on the bird species! Please also note that the fixed closures have slightly differing periods as well.
