North Rhine-Westphalia & Rhineland-Palatinate: United by the Eifel
At first glance, North Rhine-Westphalia and Rhineland-Palatinate do not have very much in common. But true hiking fans know that both states in the west of Germany are united by the Eifel. The German part of the Eifel stretches from Aachen in the west of North Rhine-Westphalia to Trier in the south-west of Rhineland-Palatinate. When visiting Trier, you should definitely make a detour to the Moselle, because there are many wonderful hiking trails there too.

From long walks through the forest to exciting boat trips on the Spree, the Spreewald has a lot in store for your holiday.

Hiking with your feet in the water on Sylt
Do you really want to go hiking again, but don't feel like hiking up steep climbs and high mountains? Then spend your next hiking holiday on Sylt! Admittedly, when you think of a hiking holiday the first thought doesn't necessarily fall on Sylt, but why not? A hike directly by the sea is not only good for the soul, it is also very healthy. The salty air is especially good for your bronchial tubes and your skin. And the flat paths are particularly suitable for beginners to hiking.
But not only directly along the beach you can do wonderful hiking. Between the dunes and away from the roads there are many wonderful hiking trails, in the middle of the most beautiful nature of Sylt. Hike to the northernmost point of Germany along the nature reserves. Most of these paths are asphalted, so you can walk here with your children in a pram without worries.
A special highlight for children are the mudflat walks. These are offered in many places along the east coast. Together with an expert guide you will stomp through the Wadden Sea and learn a lot about its inhabitants. However, you should never go on a tidal flat hike alone, because the Wadden Sea also has its pitfalls and the water is back sooner than you think.
All members of the family will have fun on a hike through the Sylt Sagenwald forest. The path is dotted with various playgrounds and places to explore, so you and your children are sure to have plenty of fun. We start at Wenningstedter Dorfteich, just a few minutes away from our Lindner Strandhotel Windrose.

For a change of pace between the hiking days you can play a game of mini golf, directly opposite our hotel. Not only fun for children!
