Solo travelling

The most beautiful hiking trips for solo travellers

Travelling alone? Solo travellers can experience nature and enjoy the quiet on these hiking trips.

Travelling through the Labertal valley with pack mules

The pack animals carry your belongings, of course, and you will appreciate this the further into the trip you are.

To destination

You are never alone here. A fluffy donkey trots at a comfortable speed next to you, carrying your belongings. At Beratzhausen in the Upper Palatinate you can experience how well this works – either on short tours or multiple-day long hiking trips. Something particularly interesting if you’re a solo traveller: a tour with other animal lovers is an excellent way to meet people. You definitely won’t run out of conversation topics!

A woodland hike through the Ebersberg forest

Calling all bird lovers and friends of the forest: Take a walk through the nature reserve "Egglburger See" near Ebersberg and with a bit of luck, you may spy birds nestling in the reeds.

To destination

Near the small town of Ebersberg in Upper Bavaria, a slightly more taxing and very winding hiking trail goes past enchanting little ponds and through a picturesque avenue to the observation tower in the Ebersberg forest. There, you’ll be treated not only to a wonderful view over the countryside, but also a forestry and environment museum, and a cosyinn that you won’t regret stopping by.

Karwendel Nature Information Centre: discovering nature at dizzying heights

There is a lot to discover when you are 2,244 metres above sea level. From the outside, the Karwendel Nature Information Centre resembles a giant wooden telescope, gazing out towards the Isartal valley.

To destination

Germany’s highest nature exhibition can be found directly next to the mountain station of the Karwendelbahn cable car. Not only will you learn interesting facts about the flora and fauna in the Karwendel mountains, but you’ll also be treated to an unparalleled view over Mittenwald and the foothills of the Alps. The nature information centre is also the starting point for shorter and longer trails, for example an over 45-minute-long round trip to the Karwendelgrube (Karwendel mine).

Meditation hike through the Ammergau Alps

"What you wish to kindle in others must burn within yourself." This is the motto of the meditation hiking trail "Meditationsweg" in the Ammergau Alps.

To destination

Leaving the stress of everyday life behind, and letting the mind wander over 87 kilometres and 15 stations: The meditation trail between the Wieskierche (Pilgrimage Church of Wies) in Steingaden and Linderhof Palace near Ettal will take you on a pilgrimage to find yourself. A guided, multiple-day meditation hike along this stretch makes for a beautiful hiking trip for solo travellers.

Trip to Kösseinehaus cabin in the Fichtel mountains

A wonderful trip: Kösseinehaus cabin has been enticing hikers to the Fichtel mountains since 1903.

To destination

Starting at Marktredwitz station, simply follow the blue and white signs for about ten kilometres – these will take you to the peak of the Große Kösseine massif and the Kösseinehaus, a quaint, cosy and shingle-roofed inn nestled between granite rocks. Franconian camaraderie or enjoying the sun undisturbed? The choice is yours. You can relax after the climb with regional snack specialities, share a Franconian beer with the regulars or other hiking enthusiasts, or simply enjoy the view from the sun terrace.

Rambling in the Partnach Gorge

Walking along the Partnach Gorge (Partnachklamm) used to be perilous. But these days, there are safe and secure paths winding through this spectacular ravine.

To destination

The wild Partnach stream near Garmisch-Partenkirchen has carved 800 metres down into the cliffs. The gorge that this created is one of the most beautiful in the Alpine region, and has been drawing in visitors since 1912. When the waterfalls and rapids turn to ice in the winter, a visit to the Partnachklamm gorge is transformed into an enchanting, fairy-tale experience.
