Hiking in Southern Germany

The Alpine foothills

We owe the ice age for the numerous swimming opportunities and the beautiful scenery of the Alpine foothills. But also culturally, the area in Southern Germany has lots of offer – as well as historical treasures from the Celts and Romans in the Altmühltal on the Altmühltal-Panorama-Path. Like King Ludwig II, we fell in love with the region from Munich to the Allgäu and the fairy-tale paths on the King-Ludwig-Way. On the hiking tour Black Forest – Lake Constance there are impressive views of the Austrian and Swiss Alps. At the Schluchtensteig the Black Forest shows its wild side. One thing is certain, you can’t go wrong with any of these tours in the Alpine foothills!

The Bavarian Alps

Pleasure and cosiness characterise the blue-and-white chequered region in Southern Germany and is also why our hiking guests swarm to Bavaria. Traditional inns, sparkling lakes and impressive mountain panoramas describe pretty well what you can expect on your next hiking holiday in southern Germany. Hike from Lake Königssee to Lake Chiemsee, from the Königssee to the Bergreich of the Hochkönig in the Bavarian & Salzburg Alps or on the Salzalpensteig 1 from the Chiemsee to the Königssee. You’ll also find lush alpine meadows on the trip to Bavaria’s Alps & Lakes. Our Salzalpensteig 2 will impress you with its cross-border trails. You will get a taste of the mountain breeze around the Zugspitze and from Garmisch to Innsbruck on the Tyrolean Trail.
