The Moments Which Define an Adventure in Germany

4 Mar , 2018  

Germany, the country which invented Wanderlust (well, defined it at least!), is a dream destination for the walker or cyclist. There’s so much diversity.

Very much a gateway to the Alps in the south with blissful climbs and views which go hand-in-hand, the river valleys of the Moselle, Rhine and Danube offer relaxed walking and cycling (& some hidden-gem vineyards), and lesser known areas such as Saxon Switzerland in the East should absolutely be on your adventure agenda.

Our adventurers have shared these special moments which define a German adventure on foot or by bike.


Germany has A LOT of castles, which have inspired many fairy tales (and Disney theme parks), which add to the romanticism of the countryside. Check out the King Ludwig Way walking trail to see Neuschwanstein.

Folklore & Legend

Germany is of course the origin of many of our favourite fairy tales (think Grimm brothers) and legends. Head to the Harz mountains to take on the witches trail!

The country is just beautiful. Even the urban areas of Germany are works of art which tell fascinating stories. Dresden (a highlight of the Elbe Cycle Path) is a particular gem, and Saxon Switzerland is home to some jaw dropping geology.






Beers, of Course

What better refreshment after a day on the trail?

Bavaria, the Moselle Valley, Lake Constance, we can’t get enough of the relaxed cycling options…..

…..And all that walking or cycling goes hand in hand with some cake.

I have been a member of the Macs Adventure team since March 2013, and since joining my travel wish-list has developed ten-fold! Glasgow is my home, and a wonderful city to live in, however I love nothing more than enjoying the access to the Scottish countryside on my doorstep.
