LOOKING FOR FRESH AIR, PANORAMIC VIEWS AND SOME BRACING OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES?
Hessen may have lively cities and cultural offerings aplenty, but Germany’s most heavily forested state is also known for its diverse and beautiful rural scenery. Explore rolling vineyards, peaceful valleys or craggy volcanic landscapes, nature parks or wooded conservation areas. Why not head to the ancient beech forests of Nordhessen, the high peaks of the Rhön mountains or the peaceful meadows of the Lahn Valley.
There are all sorts of ways to explore Hessen’s extraordinary natural beauty. The extensive networks of cycling and hiking trails here are well-marked and carefully maintained, and many of Hessen’s streams and rivers ideal for canoe trips. Adventures can be had on ski slopes in winter or come summer, up in the air on a hang-glide or paraglide; for a more relaxing holiday, why not try a spot of forest bathing or a picnic by a lake.
Whether you're looking for an active holiday, well-earned rest and relaxation or a fascinating educational experience, Hessen's natural landscapes offer unforgettable experiences for everyone.
