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!
