The 660-km-long Goldsteig trail leads from Marktredwitz to Passau and is the longest and most diversified long-distance hiking trail in Germany.

The Goldsteig - two routes

The Goldsteig stretches from the Burgenweg in the northwest to the fringes of the Upper Palatinate Forest and then splits up into two different routes:

The south route runs across the beautiful mountain ridges of the Bavarian Forest towards Passau.

Along the north route, mountains are lined up one after the other. It leads through the national park, along the border with Bohemia, to the Dreisessel mountain and finally to Passau.

The Goldsteig - an award-winning trail
