Walking holidays with Eurohike are not only planned to perfection – from maps to accommodation – but also take you to the most stunning locations in Germany. Part of the high standard is of course also the characteristics of the hiking paths, how save they are and how well-maintained. Seven of the walking holidays in Germany offered by Eurohike are awarded the hallmark of excellence by the German Hiking Institute. It goes without saying that you can definitely always rely on the usual high quality regarding the hiking routes chosen by Eurohike.

Quality is key: the hallmark of the German premium paths

This hallmark of excellence is not some self-proclaimed rating. On the contrary! Not every hiking route fulfills the strict criteria of the German Hiking Institute. Only certain routes are awarded this distinction and honour, there is a 34-point system to ensure an optimal hiking experience. Part of the criteria are: 

  • Path quality such as type of surface, width and traffic safety
  • Nature and scenery experience
  • Culture and civilisation along the hiking route
  • Extensive hiking guidance system including signposts and way-markings
  • Overall demands such as diversity, maintainance and route guidance

The purpose of this quality seal is to facilitate the decision for a hiking holiday as much as possible. In short: this award guarantees for a modern, experience-oriented hiking holiday. And this is too what Eurohike stands for: exceptional hiking holiday experiences.
