2024 Hiking Season

In preparation for the 2024 season I will remake the website and GPX files until April/May to make it more efficient. I’ve deleted and started remaking the DeWandelaar.Org Facebook Page where I’ll post updates. At present I am planning to hike the Donauberglandweg, Albsteig Schwarzwald and Schluchtensteig, possibly combined into one experience.

Long Distance Trails

Germany has many long-distance trails suitable for shorter-duration thru-hiking. The natural and scenic experience is enhanced through cultural and historical sites, which often give interesting material to ponder on. DeWandelaar shares experiences, track information, route descriptions, highlights, maps, elevation profiles, and free GPX track files. all trails
