You haven`t really been somewhere unless you`ve been there on foot!
This saying from the legendary prince of poets, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, invites European Hiking Villages to trace the myth of Europe and its diverse landscapes, and thereby get to know Europe at its best!
The diversity and color in Europe is found in the myth of its landscapes, telling of people, tales, hidden treasures and mysterious happenings. These cannot be found in landscapes alone, only in the combination with the people, culture and traces of a long history found in villages, can this relationship develop to its full potential.
Delight your visitors with a fresh idea for completely coherent, lovingly prepared hiking and nature experiences. Each village here represents its mythical landscape, tells of its traditional peculiarities, and its contributions to European history, all of which come to life in a hikeable natural landscape for the visitor.
