Beautiful Bavaria 9-day Self-guided Walking Tour

On your walk along the Altmühltal-Panorama path steep jagged Dolomite-rocks, sun-kissed juniper heaths, soft river valleys and extensive forests will line your way. The nature park ‚Altmühltal’ is also mainly know for its romantic scenery and hence predestined for a comfortable week of walking amidst unspoiled nature. On top of that you come across a landscape steeped in history and culture: impressive ramparts, reconstructed forts and spectacular treasure troves are testimony to Celtic and Roman times. Castles and palaces built by nobility, magnificent churches and monasteries built by prince-archbishops. In the Altmühltal valley you will also enjoy many culinary delights: from tasty sausage specialties all the way to the local hops in the shape of numerous delicious beers.
