Active Vacations in the Bavarian Jura

No matter whether on land or in water: there are thousands of ways to discover the different sides of the Bavarian Jura.

Hiking in the Bavarian JuraHiking

The Bavarian Jura Mountains are a hiking paradise. Discover the area by yourself or walk along signposted hiking trails, for example the “Rosskopfsteig” in the Altmuehl Valley. There are also some long distance hiking trails, for example the Way of St. James which follows the medieval hiking trails of the pilgrims. Of course there are also plenty of short hiking routes.

Cycling in the Bavarian JuraCycling

The Jura Valleys are an eldorado for cyclists, with quiet river valleys with a rich flora and fauna and great views. Along the old “Koenig Ludwig Kanal” (King Ludwig Canal) and the “Main-Donau-Kanal” (Main Danube Canal) there are no cars or steep slopes to hamper your trip. You can take a break and enjoy a bite to eat in one of the numerous cosy pubs. A tight network of cycling and hiking trails offers a great choice: round trips, which vary in difficulty, depending on what you are after – a relaxed day out or sporty exercise.
