You probably already know that hiking just a few steps in a forest calms your mind. With your everyday life at home and your mobile phone sleeping in flight mode at the bottom of your rucksack, you head out into the countryside. Out in the middle of nature, your ideas suddenly start to come to the surface. Out here, beside a stream or forest lake, you find solutions to the little stress triggers and problems of your daily life.

Between the towering trees, you develop a plan for the coming year. At the sight of a wide view, you flick a switch and come up with an idea. Clearly, nature inspires us time and time again. Whether you prefer to hike alone or with your family or friends, you’ve probably experienced that you get the very best ideas while hiking. Without everyday thoughts consuming your thoughts, your mind finally has the space to unwind.

The seven hikes in Thuringia and Saxony in this Collection are certainly inspiring. To enjoy an obligatory panoramic view, take a relaxed walk around Lake Cospuden near Leipzig and climb up the Bistumshöhe observation tower. Burgk Castle and its beautiful panorama over the lush, green loop on the Saale River is also absolutely idyllic. The poet in you will awaken during your foray through Thuringia on the Goethe Hiking Trail whilst your artistic side will come alive on the Sculpture Hiking Trail in Behringen. Here in Saxon Switzerland, starry skies lay at your feet.

Are you ready for lots of new experiences and some mindful time in nature? These hikes are sure to inspire you. You can reach all of the routes by bus or train. This means the journey there is already relaxing and you can already reflect on the way to your adventure. The hikes are all manageable with a basic level of fitness. So, look forward to inspiring moments in nature!
