If you really want to know...

The most beautiful hiking trails in Reit im Winkl are so-called "premium hiking trails", which have been awarded the "German Hiking Seal" by the German Hiking Institute for their natural beauty, breathtaking views and the nature of the hiking trails. The German Hiking Institute guarantees with the seal a "balanced, beautiful hiking experience".

A comprehensive catalogue of criteria is used to check and evaluate the quality of a hiking trail quantitatively.

  • Is the surface earthy and grassy or gravel and tarred?
  • Does the path run next to roads?
  • Is the path marked in a user-friendly way?
  • Are there benches and rest areas? Are the signs well maintained?
  • Are the path and the landscape varied?

You can find detailed information on the criteria for the German Hiking Seal on the website of the German Hiking Institute.
