Hiking in the Odenwald

Hiking on the Neckarsteig is more than active and hiking vacations in the Odenwald

Hiking on the Neckarsteig. On foot over old hiking trails and through deep forests. Across open meadows. Past historic walls. Through small villages. Amidst the biodiversity of the vast Odenwald. Simply forget the time. Decelerate and feel the peace. Only you and original nature. Feel, see and hear. Far away from the hustle and bustle, far away from the city bustle and exhaust fumes. That is hiking on the Neckarsteig from Heidelberg to Bad Wimpfen. Explore the hiking trail officially certified by Wanderbares Deutschland as a quality trail. Follow in the footsteps of poet Friedrich Hölderlin, who once described his hiking experience in the Odenwald :

"In Your valleys my heart woke me up to life!"

For 34 years now we have been coming here to hike and relax, initially with family as a retreat from the hectic Rhine-Main area and today as a fixed point in our annual planning.Conclusion:We love this "hideaway" in the small Odenwald with its fields, forests and the Neckar.
