Fascination Neckarsteig

Hiking on the Neckarsteig in the Neckar valley is a real insider tip. To walk the 128 km walk from Heidelberg to Bad Wimpfen is to experience nature at its very best. With each step you escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life and immerse yourself in a wonderful natural and cultural landscape.
The Neckarsteig can be enjoyed according to your individual preferences as a varied multi-day or single day trip. The route is certified according to the criteria of the German Hiking Association as a 'High Quality Trail of Wonderfully Walkable Germany'.
