Experience Germany’s walking trails at their best – whether in the mountains, in the forest or along lakes and rivers, there’s something for everybody here. Many walking trails feature sections to suit anyone from beginner to seasoned mountaineer, and are perfect for day trips, weekend breaks or a holiday.
The Eifel region boasts a particularly colourful palette at this time of year, ready for you to admire nature in all its autumn splendour. Then there is the Rennsteig Trail in Thuringia which was voted one of the most beautiful in 2016. The clean air, countless streams and moors and cultural highlights such as Wartburg Castle in Eisenach make walking the route an experience to remember.
The circular walk around Edersee Lake will take you through 27 kilometres of unspoilt nature, but if you want to take a short cut, you can cross the lake by ferry or boat. The 365-kilometre route along the Moselle river is definitely worth a trip. In 2016 readers of Wandermagazin voted the Moselsteig Trail, which combines 2,000 years of history with glorious scenery and an unparalleled winemaking tradition, the most beautiful trail in Germany.
A different kind of trekking adventure awaits you on a walk along the Saar-Hunsrück Trail in the Saar-Hunsrück National Park. Here, near the popular Cloef observation point, the newly opened treetop trail makes its way through the forest at a height of 23 metres, giving you the chance to admire the colourful autumn landscape from an entirely new perspective.
