Hiking in the Natural Altmühltal

Romantic valleys, rugged rocks, forests and plateaus - in Altmühltal at Pappenheim, while hiking,  you discover one of the most beautiful landscapes of Germany. To know more about Pappenheim and its ambience, you start at the public swimming pool. On the west side of Altmühl, a beautiful trail takes you always along the river to the village Zimmern.

Behind there, you cross the Altmühl river an go on the east side through the valley to the idyllic Solnhofen. In view of the imposing rock formation, “the twelve apostles”, you continue to Esslingen.  

Here again you cross the Altmühl river and arrive there on the Main-Danube-trail on which you hike above “the twelve Apostles” near Solnhofen, through beautiful deciduous forests to Zimmern and then back to Pappenheim.
