    hiking fun for everyone!


Embark on a magnificent tour and discover the Bavarian Forest!

Known as ‘the green roof of Europe’, the Bavarian Forest will enchant you with its impressive landscape and range of hiking options. This cross-border area stretches from Upper Franconia, through the Upper Palatinate to Lower Bavaria, Bohemia and Austria. You can discover real treasures while hiking between these many inviting destinations: marvel at the jagged peaks of striking mountain ranges striving towards the sky. Be enchanted by ice-age relics, where rare animals and plants find their home. Or embark on a fantastic journey through mystical moors, along rushing rivers and glacial lakes. All these wonderful natural spectacles await in the Bavarian Forest!


With its 1,456 metre high summit, the Arbermassiv area of our Großer Arber is an especially attractive place for a hike. You’ll have plenty of chances to discover the beauty of ‘Europe’s green roof’ and embark on exciting tours. Whether you fancy a gentle walk or a challenging day of hiking on one of the many Goldsteig paths, the many facets of the Bavarian Forest and our Großer Arber are sure to enchant you.
