Relax in the Sonnenhof Lam Hiking in the Bavarian Forest

Nature and Hiking Paradise Bavarian Forest

Did you know that the Bavarian Forest is also often referred to as "Europe's green roof"? Together with the Czech National Park Šumava, it represents the largest contiguous forest area in Central Europe. Untouched riparian forests, extensive moors, majestic giant trees, bizarre rock formations and quiet forest lakes - there are many natural treasures to discover, which is why the Bavarian Forest is considered one of the most beautiful hiking regions in Germany. Hiking tours for all levels of difficulty are waiting for you - beginners as well as experienced hikers will get their money's worth here. This is due to a wide variety of conditions: Besides flat forest passages and valley tours, mountain ranges and mountains (e. g. theGreat  Falkenstein or the Great Arber) are ideal for demanding tours.

Especially our region Lamer Winkel is a true paradise for hikers.

Perfectly prepared for your hike in the Bavarian Forest

Lace up your hiking boots, put the map in your hand and off you go! Hiking is usually not that easy. At least not if you have planned a longer tour through the valleys and to some peaks of ourlow mountain range.There are things to consider: The right footwear,weather changes, provisions. . . just to name a few aspects.Here are some of the most important tipsfor your hiking tour so that you feel well prepared.

  • Nutrition:

Take enough fluids and food with you (you should rest at least every 2 hours). Very important are carbohydrates (wholemeal bread, chocolate, nuts, dried fruits) and when drinking juice spritzers or water (approx. 200 ml per 30 minutes). Before the hike you should eat carbohydrate-rich food (e. g. pasta, rice, potatoes).

  • Weather:

A little rain does not hurt and can even be refreshing, but it looks different with a real thunderstorm. You should not take any unnecessary risks and therefore always follow the weather report before your tour. A thunderstorm can be very dangerous in certain places. So if one is predicted, it is better to choose a route that is safe in this case. Our hotel staff will be happy to assist you as tour planners. Rainproof clothing is also recommended and the sunscreen should always be in the hiking backpack anyway.

  • Hiking boots:

Bubbles are terribly annoying, especially if you still have many kilometres to walk. Hiking boots should therefore be bought with a lot of patience and also be worn extensively - professional advice is worth its weight in gold! You should also consider in advance what kind of hikes you are planning. Different conditions require different footwear.

  • Communication:

A smartphone has many advantages when hiking. Thanks to the GPS capability of the devices, you remain "on track" more easily. You can also reach friends, family, the mountain rescue service or other contact persons in case of danger. We recommend taking a full power bank with you so that the battery does not run out. Of course, reception in the great outdoors is not necessarily guaranteed, so it is important that you inform contact persons about your plans, your route and the time of your hike.
