We have put together for you the most beautiful competitive hikes in the Ahr, Eifel, Hunsrück, Lahntal, Mosel, Nahe, Palatinate, Romantic Rhine and Westerwald regions. They lead you through mystical beech and coniferous forests and deep river valleys with steep cliffs on which imposing castles stand firmly above the mighty meanders of the river. In the quiet wine villages and hamlets you will be greeted by friendly and hospitable people who will give you a warm welcome and proudly serve you traditional specialities from the sunny hillsides and vineyards in a creative setting.
We think these are great ideas, not only for the next autumn tour - so have fun discovering and enjoying our homeland!
