Spalter Hills Tour

Premium hiking trail "Wanderbares Deutschland"

This circular trail, awarded by the German Hiking Association, offers a varied hike through the Spalter Hügelland, to gorges worth seeing and natural monuments, past castles and fortifications.

Impressive nature, wonderful views of the plateaus and shady valleys lie along the route. The landscape is characterised by dark coniferous, light mixed and sparse pine forests, by church gardens in which white blossoms or red cherries shine depending on the season, and by the typical hop cultivation of the region.
