Gentle hills, idyllic valleys and historic towns – the Lovely Tauber Valley is the perfect region to switch off and recharge your batteries. Framed by green forests and picturesque vineyards, this varied holiday landscape stretches north-west from Rothenburg ob der Tauber to Freudenberg am Main.

The 17 day Tours presented in this Collection take you to hidden beauties and romantic places. The German Hiking Association even awarded the LT2 and LT6 hikes with the ‘Wanderbares Deutschland’ seal of approval. The Tauber River winds its way through the beautiful landscape in countless loops. Some hikes run directly along its banks whilst others take you to magnificent vantage points and unique highlights a little way from the river.

In between, you find dreamy villages with historic marketplaces and well-known towns with colourful half-timbered houses. You can discover enchanting castle ruins perched atop panoramic heights. Afterwards, a clear lake or babbling brook is the perfect place to cool off your warm feet. As you can see, the Lovely Tauber Valley is brimming with nature and culture.

You can easily reach the starting points of the Tours by train, bus or car. Most places along the Tauber are very well connected to the public transport network. 16 of the Tours are round trips, so you don't have to worry about the return journey. The ‘Hiking Trail LT 3: Wine and Faith’ is the only one-way route. There’s a train station at the end of the Tour so you can return to the starting point in a relaxed manner. Thanks to its central location, the Tauber Valley holiday region is also easy to reach from all over Germany. We invite you to get to know and love this beautiful piece of nature.
