Good morning, nice to meet you here! Waking up in the cosy ‘Förster’ holiday flat in the historic Alte Forsthaus (Old Forester’s Lodge), you are in a for a day full of exciting experiences and wonderful nature. Today, we would like to introduce you to the five most beautiful Tours around your accommodation in Riedlhütte municipality. Although the routes are geared towards different ability and fitness levels, they all have one thing in common – they explore the wonderful expanse of the Bavarian Forest National Park.

Covering no less than 24,000 hectares (59,300 acres), the forest is brimming with rare flora and fauna, magical trees, enchanted moors, babbling brooks, and wild gorges with raging water. Hiking up to lofty heights reveals how largely untouched the landscape here is.

The Alte Forsthaus is conveniently located in Riedlhütte and has many hikes that start directly from the front door. Some routes begin a stone’s throw from your accommodation, in which case you can catch a bus if you are travelling without a car. As a guest at Alte Forsthaus, you receive a GUTi ticket which allows you to use public transport within the Bavarian Forest free of charge. For more information about the ticket and the bus and train network, visit: bayerwald-ticket.com/fahrplaene-im-tarifgebiet-bayerwald-ticket-guti (information in German language only).

Although the spacious balcony, cosy living room and stove at the Förster holiday apartment may tempt you to put your feet up and do nothing, the hikes through the green nature are absolutely worth it. So pack your rucksack and get hiking! If you want to find out more about our wonderful region, ask your local hosts or take a look here: komoot.de/user/ferienregionnationalparkbayerischerwald/collections. Comfortable accommodation, beautiful scenery, and a varied programme – what more do you need for a great hiking holiday? See you soon in the Bavarian Forest National Park!

    Altes Forsthaus

    Hiking Highlight

    Built in Riedlhütte in 1867, the old forester's house is now a great place to stay for people who are hungry for exercise and who are in love with nature and who enjoy the Bavarian Forest National Park in all its colors and shapes. Holidays in the country with endless opportunities to be active and experience right on your doorstep, so to speak. A few great gastronomic offers and in winter the cross-country ski run are just a stone's throw away from the house.

    And inside: You are greeted by a rustic, cozy holiday apartment, which stretches over 85 square meters and leaves nothing to be desired with lovingly furnished living rooms, a balcony and a cozy tiled stove.

    More information about the old forest house is available at fewo-altes-forsthaus.de
