Hik­ing trips in Nieder­sachsen

Forests awash with light, steep hillsides, lush meadows and vibrant purple blooming heather – the undiluted nature in our hiking region is unrivalled. The perfect walking tour experience awaits here in Niedersachsen on a network of walking routes spanning some 2000 kilometres. How about climbing the Brocken in the fierce morning wind? Or maybe you would prefer a leisurely circuit along the Nordpfade (North Paths)? From the Harz mountains to the coast, the possibilities are endless - 365 days a year. One thing is certain, you will get back to nature while on your walking tour.

Great memories and brief moments of joy

Depending on personal taste and ambition, you can choose from demanding long distance walking trails and short distance walking tours for beginners. Those on holidays with kids will have vastly different preferences to an ambitious athlete. You decide how far and where you want to go. The Harz mountains, Lüneburger Heide, the Nordpfade (North Paths) and Weserbergland (Weser Uplands) walking areas offer both shorter routes for casual hikers and long distance hiking trails for ambitious walkers. These regions boast many top-class hiking trails.

Anyone who believes these areas have nothing more to offer than breathtaking views and vistas would be absolutely right. But it is the fleeting moments that make these walking tours so unforgettable. We have heard so many inspirational stories.
