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.

2 Sep , 2015  

A recent review of our King Ludwig Way walk summed the trip up as “a really German holiday”, and another as “seeing beautiful Bavaria at grass roots”. By “really German”, we don’t think they mean laden with cliché! Yes, there are tourist draws along the way, which are fascinating to see, but by walking the […]
