The Goldsteig Trail is celebrating its fifth anniversary. At 660 kilometres, it is Germany's longest walking trail and runs from the Upper Palatinate Forest through the Bavarian Forest to Passau. The Goldsteig trail network is augmented by a further 750 kilometres of circular paths and side trails. This premium route offers something for everyone: for nature lovers there is the Bavarian Forest National Park, for gourmands the regional cuisine and for culturally minded visitors a wealth of fantastic attractions.
In 2013, specially designed benches and shelters will be added to the Goldsteig, making the trail easily recognisable and more walker-friendly.
