Mountain vacation in Germanyadmin
The mountains with their snow-capped peaks, the wooded valleys, streams and waterfalls, but last but not least with their unique flora and fauna are one of the most popular destinations for a vacation. Especially if you like hiking or climbing, you’ve come to the right place. You don’t even have to travel far for a holiday in the mountains, because Germany also has some regions that are just right for it.
The most famous mountains in Germany are the Alps. They begin in the south of Bavaria and Baden-Württemberg and extend into northern Italy. The highest mountain in the German part of the Alps is the Zugspitze, which lies on the Swiss border. But the Bavarian Alps, the Allgäu and the Black Forest are also popular albeit somewhat flatter mountain regions in southern Germany.
But even in the center of Germany there are mountains that invite you to take a short break or go skiing. The Eifel and the Sauerland in the west, but also the low mountain range and the Harz are part of it. This mountain ridge extends to the east, where the romantic Ore Mountains are located in the south of Saxony . Although these mountains do not reach the height and characteristics of the Alps, there are suitable opportunities for all typical mountain sports such as climbing, hiking, skiing, mountain biking and the like.
Only further north does Germany become flatter and mountainless.
If you want to go on holiday in the mountains, there are a number of options in Germany. For a spontaneous weekend holiday, the nearest mountain range is ideal, since then you don’t have to travel far. Holiday areas with appropriate sports facilities can be found in practically every mountain region. But just because of the breathtaking Alpine panorama, the trip to southern Germany is worthwhile for a longer holiday. Glaciers, gorges and caves create a fascinating picture and offer the visitor numerous opportunities for exploration. In addition, of course, there is also the hearty alpine cuisine with lots of cheese and meat, which you should have tried once.
