Alt mühl tal.
If you are interested in culture, follow in the footsteps of the ancient Romans. Discover precious fossils at the limestone quarries, dating back to the Jurassic period. Explore grottos and castles. If you fancy physical activity, take a walk past precipitous rock formations, across heathlands dotted with juniper trees and along lovely valleys. If you are a peace-seeker, enjoy the tranquil setting. Relax on the beach of a bathing lake. Simply indulge yourself. Millions of years ago the local area was covered by the Jurassic ocean. Today the “Altmühltal” Valley is a sought-after holiday destination and recreation area. A paradise for walks and mountain bike tours. And a countryside of an unrivalled beauty.
Conviviality and intimacy. With the family or friends. Looking for a retreat. Longing for nature. Yearning for walks and physical activity. Just for pleasure and fun. A short break or a longer stay. Breathe the nature. Again and again. In the very heart of Bavaria. Not far from the cities of Munich, Ingolstadt and Regensburg. Surrounded by meadows and woodlands as far as the eye can see. In one of the largest nature parks in Germany.
Spring in the Altmühltal.
In spring the days are getting longer. The snow is melting. The sun shines more often. The trees are getting green and the plants are starting to come into flower. It is time to dig out the walking boots. To pick the golf clubs from the cellar. To oil the bicycles. It is time for physical activity and sports. Without having to wear heavy waterproof clothing.

Autumn in the Altmühltal.
The leaves are falling from the trees. It is getting colder. Windier. The sun hides more often behind the clouds. Nevertheless, autumn is a magical period to visit the Altmühltal. To explore the local area during a walk. To push one’s limits at a high ropes course. To mount the bicycle for the last time before hibernating, pedalling on the trails of the extensive network of cycle routes in the Altmühltal.
