Being so scenic and mountainous makes for adventure and excitement. There are circular walks in place for those gentle strolls, nature trails for the family or two-day hikes for the more serious!

If you still want to get outside, but want to save your energy for exploring the many pretty villages, the old churches (the Alte Kirchen) and magnificent highland viewpoints — just catch the frequent Panoramatour buses. They reach almost every location with the least amount of effort!

Culture is strong in the Altenkirchen District, so why not make time for the festivities, the Maifete in spring, the Schützenfest in the summer — and the Oktoberfest needs no explanation! There is also a diverse program of caberet and music in the main towns and the people are very welcoming here. So take your time to enjoy it all.
