Walking mostly above the River Altmuhl you’ll be rewarded with spectacular views along the valley.
Staying in medieval towns you will be greeted by castles at the end of some of your walks and can enjoy some of the region’s culinary delights from tasty sausage specialties to numerous delicious beers.
