More Info

While there is much more to Germany than just the two states of Bavaria and Baden-Württemberg, they are certainly where you’ll find some of the best hiking. Arriving in Munich or Freiburg situates you perfectly for an excellent outdoor adventure.

Be sure to come prepared and enjoy a hut-to-hut trek, which is the best way to see whichever part of southern Germany that you choose to explore. None of the hiking here is very tough, but being in shape before starting the trip will ensure that you enjoy it more.

Be sure to check out some of the castles and medieval towns and cities scattered throughout the area too. The Neuschwanstein Castle, upon which Walt Disney famously based his signature castle, is a must see in the region.    

Rain is not uncommon throughout the year here, so be sure to pack extra clothes and appropriate rainwear in order to maximise your enjoyment.   




Good to Know


What’s the weather like?

During the late spring, summer and early autumn, weather is mostly ideal for hiking. Average daily temperatures during this time range from 15ºC to 22ºC, ideal for walking. Rain is not infrequent throughout the year, but there are usually plenty of sunny and clear days as well.

How long should I stay?

This depends on how much time you have available. Guides offer single-day hikes and week-long treks. Overall, a week or two should be sufficient time to explore southern Germany.

Rudi is an experienced mountaineer with a great deal of knowledge about the area and trails available. He coordinated closely with me to determine my skill level and objective for the hike. It was an absolutely terrific day.

Explore-Share took advantage of my inexperience. I had asked for a beginner level trip, instead, they recommended me a rather advanced trip. Neither Explore-Share nor the guide were forthcoming with information until the very last moment. The guide sold my participation to another outfit about a week before the trip. Neither Explore-Share neither the guide are trustworthy and can be relied upon in making arrangements.
