Hiking in Germany

This section, obviously still in its very early stages, will cover day hikes in Germany. For hikes in nearby Switzerland, see the Swiss hiking section.

Hike map

Here's a map of southern Germany showing (roughly) where the hikes are. The map currently only covers the south of the country because this is where the interesting Alps are - and where the majority of the covered hikes will be located. As you can see, there are currently just two hikes available, both in the Allgäu alps.

Notes on the hikes

Please note that all times and prices are approximate, and may be subject to change since the hikes were researched. Particularly in Winter, the difficulty of a hike depends greatly on the current snow conditions, and can change from week to week. Use common sense and backtrack or shortcut if necessary.

The gps icon means that a GPS was used to record the hike, and so waypoints and 3d plots are available. The camera icon means that photos are available. For certain hikes there are also Kmz files provided, which you can open in Google Earth to show the routes - these are indicated by the kmz icon. These data files can also be viewed in Google Maps online if you haven't got Google Earth installed.

Also, please feel free to share your experiences. Any additional information, corrections, suggestions and comments would be gratefully received by email - all due credit will be given.
