Rothaarsteig, Uplandsteig, Pilgerweg, Europawanderweg 1, Diemelsteig and many more... Willingen offers a network of quality hiking trails (approx. 300 km long) like no other in Germany. We are in the "fortunate position" of having the region's most beautiful hiking areas right on our doorstep: The Hochsauerland, the Diemelsee Nature Park and the Waldecker Land. Fascinating local and long-distance routes - with breathtakingly beautiful vantage points embedded in fascinating nature - that is our HOMIC HIKING WORLD.
"I spend every free minute actively in nature. I already wrote my diploma thesis at university together with the Europa-Wanderhotels & health pope Prof. Dr. Ingo Froböse on the topic of hiking and health tourism, as this topic has always interested me as a sporty "young" lady. In addition to the positive physical and psychological effects of hiking on health - there is no better anti-aging programme - I am of course very pleased that hiking itself has become younger & fresher again."
Are you look for some hiking pleasure? Here are my top 3 hiking trails for you:
ROTHAARSTEIG – THE PATH OF THE SENSES
My personal favourite! There is no way around it if you are a fan of stage hiking (approx. 20-25km per stage) and want to experience the Hochsauerland in all its glory with all your senses. And best of all: mass tourism is nowhere to be found! Leave your everyday life behind you on one of the Top Trails of Germany... P.s.: If you want to hike the Rothaarsteig, we have a great offer for you!
GOLDEN PATH ON THE HIGH HEATH - NATURE AS A THERAPIST
The "Golden Path" on the beautiful Niedersfelder Hochheide brings you back to nature. This is where 'Doctor Nature' is at work and the encounter with nature often feels like a journey into one's own self. Ten mindfulness stations can be hiked and help you to relax, experience nature and see many everyday things with new eyes.
Get into your walking shoes and off you go. The pilgrimage trail starts right behind our hotel! Pilgrimage on the "Lebensspuren" path of reflection with time out in the Schwalefeld pilgrimage church and the "Lichterkirche am Weg" in Rattlar. Time to find yourself again...
