Hiking in the Geopark Ries

The Geopark Ries is a terrific place to hike. A broad network of trails reveals the charm of an extraordinary landscape, from lush vegetation in the crater basin to sparse juniper heaths at the edges. Long-distance trails show the unique Ries landscape, and numerous regional paths can turn a hike into an exciting travel experience through a cultural landscape as well—most without having to master large inclines. Signposted Geopark trails like the Shepherds’ Way connect special features relevant to geology, settlement history and nature studies.
