When we think about an active holiday destination that really offers a wide variety of quality hiking trails for every hiking enthusiast and alpinist, we arrive in beautiful Germany.
Easy-going walks, mountain experiences and trekking holidays, are all not far from well-known towns and cities, from northern and central Germany to the foothills of the Alps and the Bavarian Alps.
A landscape that could hardly be more diverse! The north of Germany does not only glisten with long, white sandy beaches, you can also hike through dense forests, along rugged cliffs and use the seaside promenades in the evening.
Explore the famous pearl of the Baltic Sea on the Rügen Island tour and take beautiful photos of lonely lighthouses and the impressive chalk coast along the way. Or you can explore the famous Baltic Sea resorts with sand under your hiking boots and the sea breeze in the air.
Even the Romans appreciated the area around the Rhine and Moselle in their era. The fertile soil provided everything the vines needed to grow. The quality of the grape harvest from the vines along the riverbanks means that it is still regarded as Germany's number one wine region.
The wine varieties from this region are also appreciated worldwide. This is the terrain that you'll walk on during your walking holiday.
Did you know that there are numerous swimming opportunities in the beautiful lakes with the scenic charm of the foothills of the Alps? Southern Germany also offers many interesting cultural highlights such as the historical treasures of the Celts and Romans in the Altmühltal on the Altmühltal Panoramaweg.
Like King Ludwig II in that era, we too fall in love with the region from Munich to the Allgäu and the fairytale paths along the King Ludwig Way. Impressive views of the Austrian and Swiss Alps await you in Bavaria.
Fun and friendliness characterize the blue-and-white checkered region of southern Germany, which is why our hiking guests also visit Bavaria in such large numbers. Charming inns, glittering lakes and impressive mountain panoramas describe what you can expect on your next hiking holiday in southern Germany.
Hike from the Königssee to the Chiemsee, on the Salzalpensteig 1 or through typical Bavarian lush alpine meadows that you will find everywhere. Get a taste of the mountains around Germany's highest mountain, the Zugspitze, on the hiking tour around the Zugspitze.
Fully-organised walking holidays are the best way to walk or hike in new surroundings along some of Europe's most popular and lesser-known walking trails in a confident way.
We have a wide selection of walking tours available across Europe, but all of our hiking holidays have several things in common such as luggage transfers and pre-planned routes.
We've highlighted several reasons why you should go on a self-guided walking holiday in our overview video.
If you have never been on a hiking holiday like this before or are used to organising everything yourself from planning the route to carrying your tent, our short video will give you an idea of what to expect on a walking tour with us.
