Hiking & Wellness

Hiking together in a wellness holiday is a relief

Hiking holiday in a wellness hotel

Enjoy the view from mountains, discover forests or walk for hours along the coast, looking out over the expanse of the sea: Hiking is popular today with young and old alike. Hikes are walks that are organised for leisure purposes and last several hours. Germany's diverse landscapes offer an El Dorado of possibilities for hiking enthusiasts. Whether in the mountains, along the coast or in the heart of Germany: everywhere you go, nature inspires with its diversity.

Hiking on the North Sea and Baltic Sea

Summer on the coast is wonderful and the beach, sun and sea attract many holidaymakers to German seas every year. In summer, but also in all other seasons, the coast also offers all kinds of options for hiking holidays. During a wellness holiday at the North Sea, guests experience high and low tide several times a day and can explore the seabed during mudflat walks. While the North Sea offers a unique natural spectacle, hikers on the Baltic Sea discover many unique landscapes. Whether chalk cliffs on the island of Rügen, long sandy beaches on Usedom or gently rolling hills in Holstein Switzerland: wellness holidaymakers discover something new with every hike.

Hiking in the heart of Germany

Even without coasts and high mountains, the regions in the centre of Germany are varied: many forests, wide meadows and beautiful lakes characterise the landscape. Whether in the Lusatian Lakeland with its water world, the Sauerland with its wide meadows and forests or the Eifel with its special maar landscape: every region in the centre of Germany has special attractions for hikers - and that at any time of year. While hikers experience the blossoming nature in spring and summer, the centre of Germany enchants with picturesque autumnal forests in autumn and snow-covered landscapes in winter. On secured winter hiking trails, holidaymakers gain unique impressions of the sleeping nature in the cold season.

Hiking holidays in the mountains

Anyone who has ever climbed a mountain and then let their gaze wander over the surrounding valleys knows what a special feeling the ascent of a mountain gives. Many regions in southern Germany, in Bavaria and Baden-Württemberg, are perfect for mountain hiking. Here hikers discover the beautiful mountain nature, experience how it changes with the altitude and return in the evening exhausted but happy to a cosy, well-deserved meal in a mountain hotel.

Our Hiking & Wellness-Tips for you

Eggs for beautiful skin

Protein is the secret weapon against wrinkles. The best: A protein mask is made in no time at all. Beat the egg white so stiffly that a knife cut remains visible, apply and wash off after 20 minutes. The firm baby popo skin on the face is finished. 

Wonder berries

Berries are not only extremely delicious, but they are healthy as wel! Every type of berry has its own strengths. Whilst blackcurrants strengthen our immune- and cardiovascular system, raspberries are good for your bone formation. If those are not good reasons for indulging in a tasty berry-salad, we do not know what is.

Scavenger hunt 2.0

Geocaching - this connects the internet with outside activities. During the hike, you use GPS coordinates to search for a treasure (often in branches, caves or forests). In Germany there are many maps for it, from East Frisia up to the Allgäu. Just have a look at www.geocaching.de and go on a scavenger hunt.
