In the beating heart of Europe, stretching from the North and Baltic Seas to the majestic upthrust of the Alps in the south, Germany boasts a plethora of inspirational landscapes primed for exploration on foot. Walks in Germany are delightful and varied, with something for every trail enthusiast.

There are no less than sixteen national parks to get to grips with on your hikes in Germany. Discover the Baltic coastline where paths explore towering chalk cliffs, beautiful lagoons and dramatic peninsulas. In the south east, magnificently wild and romantic rock formations dominate the wooded landscapes of Saxon Switzerland.

Experience the fascinating industrial heritage and classic beauty of the Rhineland or follow the river upstream to the fairy tale landscapes of the Black Forest. Awesome mountain trails and iconic castles can be found in the south and if it is an adventure at altitude that you’re after, the Allgäu Alps offer routes alongside beautiful glaciers and snow-capped, jagged peaks.
