Walking Across Europe is superb so get on your walking boots to see the region at its very best and really get away from it all.
The mighty Zugspitze – not only the highest peak in the Wettersteinbirge range, but also in the whole of Germany – stands sentinel on the southern border, in the very heart of Europe, commanding views into four different countries. Elaborately decorated villages, whose exquisite frescoes (Lüftmalerei) depict religious and pastoral scenes, local craftsmen at work, or even fairy tales shows the holiday walker what Germany is really about and why its views and its towns are famous all around the world. This holiday is a real gem, something special with unquestionable beauty.
Your holiday here in Germany will definitely be one to remember. Your first day sets the holiday up to a great one, following a superb walk that features two dramatic gorges. Your walks do not stop at one place; crossing the border into Austria, you return to Mittenwald via the Leutaschklamm, a spectacular gorge with a metal walkway and a series of footbridges across the foaming water for a spectacular experience.
From astonishing gorges to sparkling lakes, high-mountain scenery to sumptuous castles, and scented forests to idyllic villages, this holiday has it all. Perhaps the highlight is the route across the slopes of the Alpspitze, which offers the best views of the Zugspitze. This is the perfect walking holiday for everyone, with all the options under the sun to choose from. Enjoy everything you could ask for of the German landscapes, towns and beautiful views as far as the eye can see.
