The German National Tourist Office is the official body for travel and tourism from the UK & Ireland to Germany.
If you think Germany only has big cities, think again. The country has much more to offer travellers, such as exceptional natural landscapes and a diverse flora and fauna. About a third of the country is covered by woodland and walking is a national sport for all ages. Respectful management of cultural heritage, extensive conservation of plants and animals and a passion for upholding regional customs ensure that these natural treasures are preserved for future generations to enjoy.
Runners, romantics, treasure hunters and fitness seekers have a huge choice of outdoor locations in which to explore Germany on foot. A network of well-marked trails covering around 20.000 kilometres in total makes it easy to find your bearings – even without GPS.
Tours through the natural landscapes are a great way to get closer to nature. But there are also lots of green areas to discover in and around Germany’s cities. Germany has also a range of hiking-friendly accommodation.
