Its varied geography and diverse landscapes make Lower Saxony an ideal destination for ramblers and hikers. You can choose between roaming barefoot through the tidal flats inhaling unpolluted fresh air, enjoying a relaxing stroll through the Lüneburger Heide , or donning your hiking boots and head to the Harz Mountains – or do all three! Take advantage of short loop trails that can easily be hiked in a single day or multi-day journeys along scenic routes, with professional organisation and guides.

Whether you’re a casual hiker or a seasoned rambler, the hiking trails of Lower Saxony offer something for everyone. And you can choose the hiking distance as well as the level of difficulty to suit your fitness level. The almost level routes in the north and in the centre of Lower Saxony are ideal for relaxed, enjoyable hiking. More demanding tours include the rolling hills of the Weserbergland with its castles and palaces along the Weser river, or the massive Harz Mountain range.
