Our Top European and German Hiking Trails

Long-distance hiking trails in Germany and Europe offer breathtaking landscapes, challenging paths or demanding vertical meters.

Neither of these routes is necessarily easy to tackle, but the challenge of completing these beautiful and adventurous hikes is part of the fun.

Whether it’s a hut to hut hike in the mountains, a round trip or island crossings. Long-distance hikes are a challenge from many perspectives. Our aim is always to be light and independent when traveling with a tent and backpack. Our selected hiking trails offer something for everyone. The dramatic and peaceful north of Europe with the legendary Kungsleden. Hiking routes in the south with its warm and sunny landscape and the famous, toughest GR20 in Corsica. Here you will find our stories, our experiences that we made while hiking countless kilometers across this continent.

Long-distance hikers talk a lot about terms like e.g. long-distance trails, trekking trails, or thru hikes. What they all have in common is that hikers and adventurers spend several days and nights with a backpack while on trek. As a rule, the long-distance hiking trail leads over several hundred kilometers through one or more countries. In addition, the individual countries show different standards for evaluating their paths. On our hike in the High Tatras, the stages required a higher level of demands than, for example, in Austria.





Pick up a pen, a small notebook, your old walking shoes and immerse yourself in what John Muir calls “That Great Show” of nature. Follow the hiking trails!
