Hiking can be so wonderful!
Discover new places away from the well-trodden paths with our insider hiking tips. There are many hidden gems that are still relatively unknown among the many hiking routes in North Rhine-Westphalia. We’d like to introduce them to you!
When nature wakes up from its winter hibernation, it is high time to lace up your shoes and enjoy the fresh air. Hikers in North Rhine-Westphalia have over 50,000 kilometres of well-managed hiking paths to choose from, with new offers being added every year. Away from the Eifelsteig and Rheinsteig trails, you’ll find exciting insider tips for hikes in Your NRW.
Hiking and relaxation
One very special experience is yoga hiking. There are several opportunities available in Your NRW, such as the three yoga hiking routes in Bad Meinberg in the Teutoburg Forest. Panels have been set up for hikers in places with particularly spectacular views, showing simple yoga exercises. But the routes are beautiful even without yoga breaks, leading past a baroque spa park and through the moor region where the medicinal Meinberg sulphurous moor mud is collected.
Anyone who wants to try out more yoga after their yoga hike can pay a visit to the Haus Yoga Vidya in Bad Meinberg, the largest seminar and training centre of its kind outside India, with a range of offers that are unique in Europe.
For fans of healthy living, the “Vitalwanderwelt” vitality wonderworld in the Teutoburg Forest is also well worth discovering. Here, physiotherapists or specially trained hiking tour guides accompany the guests and show them movement and relaxation exercises at specially arranged points along the way. Thanks to telemedicine, anyone who wishes to can also stay in contact with their doctor during the hike.
