Hiking in Bavaria - Routes, Tours, Pilgrimage Ways

Discover Bavaria’s extraordinary beauty on foot. On our selected hiking routes you can stroll through Bavaria and, if you like, even beyond its borders.

Altmühltal Panoramaweg

When hiking in the Nature Park Altmühltal you can experience nature as well as the cultural history of the Altmühl Jura area.


The Baierweg trail is one of the numerous old commercial routes that connected Bavaria and Bohemia (Czech Republic) from the Danube to the crests of the Bavarian and Bohemian Forest.

Benedikt Trail

Following the footsteps of Pope Benedict XVI, there is much to be discovered. The area between the Inn, the Salzach and the Alps is not only highlighted by the biographical episodes of the Holy Father’s childhood and youth but beautiful landscape as well.


The 527-km-long Frankenweg is the first long-distance hiking trail in Germany to be awarded a certificate of quality by the German Hiking Association.


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

Way of St. James

The St. James’s Way is a network of different trails. Like little streams and brooks the trails lead through countries all over Europe and end up in Spain.

Kelten Erlebnisweg

The 220-km-long Kelten Erlebnisweg (Celtic experience trail) is a long-distance trail between Thuringia and Bavaria.


On a total length of 127 km the first long-distance hiking trail in the foothills of the Alps follows the steps of a man who is known as „the dreamer“ – the Fairy Tale King Ludwig II.


On a total length of 359 km the Maximiliansweg leads you from Lindau am Bodensee along the German Alps to Berchtesgaden on two different routes.


The 180-km-long trail leads hikers from Waldmünchen to Passau. It takes about 8 to 10 days to wander along the whole trail in several legs.

Romantic Road

The Romans built this road, they sometimes say. It is partly true of the southern part, at least if you bend the truth a bit and do not mind that both, the roman road "Via Claudia" and the Romantic Road lead to Ausgburg, not however on exactly the same route.

Via Alpina

...the first recognised walking trail described in multilingual documentation linking Trieste on the Adriatic Coast to Monaco and the Mediterranean...

Via Claudia Augusta

...the only emperor route over the alps. After two thousand years of history, Via Claudia Augusta, the ancient Roman road that led from the Po River lowlands and the Adriatic Sea all the way to Bavaria and the Danube, is enjoying a renaissance.
