Good for your health and a feast for your eyes: walking in Germany

Runners, romantics, treasure hunters and health freaks have a huge choice of outdoor locations in which to explore Germany on foot. A network of well-marked trails covering around 200,000 kilometres in total makes it easy to find your bearings – even without GPS.

Tours through the natural landscapes are a great way to get closer to nature. But there are also lots of green areas to discover in and around Germany's cities. Germany has also a range of hiking-friendly accommodation.
