Hiking & nature vacation

Hiking & nature vacation

As a country and village child, I have always developed a very special connection to nature and agriculture. Life in the city would therefore make no sense for me in the long term. How happy I am when I look into the deserted distance, observe the cloud formations at the sea or enjoy the view from the mountain peak, I have only really realized in recent years. When I travel, I also love discovering nature, going hiking and learning about local agriculture. For me, hiking, walking and cycling are all part of traveling and going on vacation. An outdoor and hiking holiday decelerates, lets us experience the world even more mindfully and reminds us that we are all connected. It doesn't always have to be exciting long-distance travel destinations either, because there are also incredibly beautiful places to discover in Germany, Austria and Switzerland that not everyone has on their radar screens. Like for example Active holiday with goats in the Black Forest, Wine Hikes on the Moselle, alpine Hikes in the Zillertal or a town-country river Bike tour in the Eifel

Holidays on the Moselle - A weekend in Cochem, Beilstein and Pomerania

There are places in Germany that I just like to travel to again and again. Last summer we explored the picturesque Moselle region on a small road trip. Due to time constraints, we didn't make it to Cochem and Beilstein back then, but we wanted to make up for the excursions this time. What particularly fascinates me about the Moselle region is the incomparable holiday atmosphere. Historic towns, romantic palaces and castles, well-known wineries and numerous colorful half-timbered houses that line the river landscape like pearls: A holiday on the Moselle is not only beautiful, but also diverse. This time our exploration tour went to the holiday region of Cochem.


The goat trail in Forbach: Hiking in the Black Forest

Hiking in the Black Forest: It's not always the exotic countries that can enchant you. If Corona has taught us anything, it is that it is definitely worth exploring your own environment. We live in Baden-Württemberg, just a stone's throw away from the mystically beautiful Black Forest. Hardly any other mountain region in Germany is as diverse and at the same time as mysterious as the Black Forest. This article is about a hike in the wild and romantic Murg Valley. To be more precise, to Bermersbach, a district of the idyllically beautiful municipality of Forbach.

Tenerife in December: 5 things that will enchant you in Tenerife

Happened again: I flew to an island that never really interested me. Why? On the one hand, because I wanted to escape the winter weather in Germany. Who has anything to complain about when it comes to the beach, sun and sea? And on the other hand, because I heard so many good things about Tenerife from a friend that I just wanted to experience it myself. At first I didn't expect much more than a colorful beach life on Tenerife.
