North Rhine-Westphalia offers something for everyone, be it beautiful nature, urban flair or culture. What better way to discover this diversity than by hiking? It’s the most sustainable way to explore the nature on your doorstep. In this Collection, we present exciting hikes between the Eifel and Münsterland in Germany.

We sent NRW explorers out and about on nine new hiking Tours to show you the varied region from different perspectives. Get out into nature on three Tours by Gina and Marcus (2onthego.de); they take you to idyllic spots where you can simply switch off and take a deep breath. If you’re looking for more action, you should check out the three routes by Nadine (planethibbel.com). Her routes guarantee exciting views and adventurous trails. Finally, Nick, (urbanhiker.de) shows you how much greenery can be discovered in NRW’s cities.

Hiking is particularly sustainable if you travel by public transport – that’s why all the start and endpoints of these routes are easily accessible by bus and train. You can also use other environmentally-friendly means of transport like cycling. The NRW explorers have included tips about this.

    The Hermannsweg is of course well known to hikers.
