Visiting Germany might not be the most adventurous thing imaginable, but that is only if you don’t know where to look for some adventure. If you do, however, then you’ll realize that the country offers much more opportunities to do some exciting things. Here are some of the best places to visit in Germany for adventurous travelers.

Black Forest

The Black Forest is a mountain range renowned for its dense forests and panoramic views. The region will allow you to explore picturesque villages while also enjoying many adventurous activities. The latter includes hiking or mountain biking through stunning landscapes and enjoying water sports at Titisee and Schluchsee lakes.

Garmisch Partenkirchen

Garmisch Partenkirchen really comes to life during the winter, when the region becomes one of the best places for winter sports in this part of Europe. However, you can get adventurous in other seasons thanks to the outdoor activities offered by Bavarian Alps. One of them is climbing Zugspitze, which is the highest mountain in the country.

Berchtesgaden National Park

Berchtesgaden National Park has it all. In the summertime, hiking, rock climbing, paragliding, and various other outdoor activities are in focus. Then when the snow starts falling, ski resorts on mountain Watzmann start coming to life. One of the adventurous things you can do here is hike to Eagle’s Nest, a retreat once used by Nazi leaders.
