Hiking on the panorama trail high above the Altmühl?
A truly beautiful idea!
Diese Wanderung führt Sie einmal quer von Nordwest nach Südosten durch den Naturpark Altmühltal bis an den spektakulären Durchbruch der Donau durch das Grundgestein bei Kloster Weltenburg. You will experience the Altmühl, its small towns, castles and hospitality as intensively as hardly anyone else.
Der Naturpark Altmühltal ist vor allem wegen seines romantischen Landschaftsbildes bekannt. It invites you to an intensive week of hiking in the midst of pristine nature. In addition, there is a cultural landscape steeped in history: mighty ramparts, reconstructed forts and spectacular treasure finds are evidence of the time of the Celts and Romans. Noble families built castles and palaces, prince-bishops magnificent churches and monasteries.
On your hike along the Altmühltal Panorama Trail you will be accompanied by rugged dolomite rocks, sun-drenched juniper heaths, gentle river valleys and extensive forests. The Altmühl enchants with its very special tranquility! Haste and stress fall away in an instant once you’re on the road.
You will also get your money’s worth in culinary terms in the Altmühltal: from spicy sausage specialties to regional hops, in the form of numerous tasty types of beer.
