Hiking

Hiking and nordic walking in and around Donauwörth

Hiking and nordic walking in the Swabian Alb, along the Danube and in the Franconian Alb is a pleasure for body and soul.

Hikers can enjoy and experience Donauwörth's varied landscape on a trail network of over 100 kilometres. Romantic creeks, calm woods, idyllic riverbanks and comfortable country inns complete your hiking adventures. Two European pilgrimage trails of St. James unite in the town of Donauwörth. The northern and the southern borders of the long distance hiking trails of the Swabian Alb, the Romantic Road and of the Main-Danube-Trail meet in Donauwörth.

Hiking through our landscape, you will discover yet unknown regions and the beauty of nature. You may take a rest and treat yourself to an authentic Bavarian-Swabian "Brotzeit" in one of our many contry inns and restaurants.
