Love hiking? You’re going to love it here!

The Altmühl Valley Panoramic Trail, Germany’s most beautiful long-distance hiking trail, directly passes our hotel

As a natural park in the heart of Bavaria, the Altmühl Valley offers a wide range of excursions and outings. Treasures like Eichstätt, a historic town in an Italian style, and Kelheim with its Liberation Hall and the Danube Gorge, as well as great city of Regensburg, a World Heritage Site all are waiting to be explored.

Sports fans will love the Altmühl Valley Cycling Trail or taking a boat trip on the Altmühl River. Recharge your batteries and enjoy the fresh air on the nearby jogging and Nordic walking trails: your body and spirit will thank you.

For boating, the Altmühl and the Rhine-Main-Danube Canal offer plenty of great options.

The well-developed cycling routes are also a great way to explore the Altmühl Valley.

Hiking in Altmühl Valley: one of the many highlights is the Altmühl Valley Panorama Trail.
