Thuringia – Hiking and Lodging of Certified Quality
Thuringia, the green heart of Germany, is an ideal place for hiking:
Breathtaking landscapes with mountains of up to nearly 1,000 metres in height, endless lovely meadows and woods, and nature parks such as the Thuringian Forest or the Hainich National Park with its famous Treetop Trail, captivate visitors with their beauty.
Altogether, Thuringia offers 16,000 kilometres of hiking paths including 18 certified quality hiking trails. More than 80 hotels along the routes have been certified as qualified accommodations for hikers.
The unique link between nature and cultural heritage makes hiking in Thuringia extraordinary and unique. In the footsteps of world-known personalities such as Goethe or Bach, hikers get to know the German Classics, and German-German history can be experienced whilst hiking the certified quality hiking trail “Point Alpha” along the inner-German border to a former US Army observation post.
