Behind the green mountains of the Odenwald, far away from any hustle and bustle, you may breathe the scent of meadow with blossoming fruit trees or dive into silent forests, explore spellbound castle ruins and discover the winding narrow alleys of historic towns. Picturesque paths lead up and downhill across gently rolling mountains and through the idyllic valleys of the Odenwald. Whether you want to go walking, hiking, Nordic Walking, cycle touring, mountain biking, bicycle racing or golf playing – there are many ways to discover the marvellous nature of the Odenwald. Enjoy genuine "Apfelwein" – apple cider, tender lamb meat, aromatic cheese and many other specialties – either in a very traditional or completely different way. Shift to nature. Unique experiences of nature alternate with cultural highlights, gourmets enjoy freshly prepared regional specialties, no matter if at a rustic country inn or high-class restaurant. Farm holidays will be amazing for children. The Odenwald, located between Darmstadt - the city of Art Nouveau and the former residence city of Heidelberg, between Bergstrasse, the Rivers Main and Neckar, is a very special holiday destination. Take your time and discover this green bastion with all of your senses.
