Nature Tours

Bavaria has the greatest Freizeitwert (recreational value) in the country, but for beginning hikers, bikers, and explorers, the sheer number of options available can sometimes seem overwhelming. For the eighth year, the Bavarian Environment Ministry is sponsoring a statewide initiative to help bring Bavarians closer to the natural beauty surrounding us. Bayern Tour Natur (Bavaria Tour Nature) is a database of 2,600 guided tours. Nature guides, herb specialists, hiking clubs, and environmental experts sign up to guide participants free of cost—simply for the joy of sharing their knowledge with others. Browse through the offerings (some of which are in English) at A free magazine including the current program is available at City Hall, in banks, and in Deutsche Bahn trains, or by calling (01801) 20 10 10. More than 40,000 Bavarians are expected to take advantage of this wonderful project, which will run through the fall.
