On the border between Germany and the Czech Republic, the spectacular Bavarian Forest stretches across the landscape, with its rushing streams, unique moors, and impressive peaks. In 1970, the protected area became Germany’s first national park. Under the motto ‘Let nature be nature’, you can get to know the forest up close on the hikes in this Collection. Whether you are dreaming of a relaxing getaway or ready for an active vacation, you’ll find exactly what you’re looking for here.
The holiday apartment Bachhuber in Schönberg climatic health resort is the perfect starting point for your Tours in the national park. In this Collection, we present our six favorite hikes, which show you the most beautiful corners of the Bavarian Forest. Hike in the footsteps of old traditions and crafts to the Reschbachklause reservoir and the Finsterauer Filz. Enjoy incredible views and Bavarian specialties on the summit plateau of the Großer Arber and cool off your feet in Arbersee lake.
Picturesque paths run through the upper Ilz Valley, one of the few preserved stretches of wild river in Germany. An absolute highlight is also the hike through the mystical Steinklamm gorge. Here, the Große Ohe river has cut deep into the rock to create a hiker’s paradise. If you enjoy a sporty challenge, then the circular at the Frauenau dam is for you. The trail leads across the scenic Schachten, former alpine meadows in the middle of the forest. A classic is the ascent of the Großer Rachel, the second-highest mountain in the national park. From the summit, you drop down to Rachelsee lake.
