Topics: Outdoor Walking on mountains and along rivers Being active outdoors East Bavaria is the ideal place to go walking, with its mountains rich in forests and charming landscapes. Thus, it is hardly surprising that Germany's longest, certified hiking trail, the "Goldsteig", spans over 660 km through the Bavarian Forest and the Upper Palatinate Forest. Every year, the worldrenowned “Goldsteig Ultra Race” takes place. Participants from all over the world attempt to cover all 660 km in as short a time as possible. The Ultra Race, which takes place once every year, is one of the world´s longest non-stop races. Top athletes require around 145 hours Skiing to run the 660 km course. An El Dorado for skiers is the Great Arber (Großer Arber), which has an almost alpine character with its 10 km of ski slopes and gondola lifts. Several ski schools offer skiing courses. It is possible to ski down the Geißkopf mountain in winter, and in summer the mountain is famous for its mountain bike runs. There are also canoeing courses on the East Bavarian rivers. The Iron Curtain Trail runs along the Bavarian- Bohemian border; with a total length of 9,500 km, the international cycle path starts in the very far north of Europe in Norway and passes through over 20 countries, finishing at the Black Sea. The Paneurope Cycle Route, which links Paris, Nuremberg and Prague, also passes through East Bavaria for approximately 130 km. Walking, cycling, mountain biking, skiing, canoeing … every sports enthusiast and outdoor lover will get their money's worth in East Bavaria!

Topics: Family holidays Activities for families Out and about with family Families with children can certainly get their money's worth in East Bavaria. There are leisure facilities and adventure worlds throughout the entire region, where both children and their parents can have a good time! Here are some ideas: - Ride the longest rollercoaster in Bavaria, - Ride on the bobsleigh and toboggan runs which can be over 1000 m long!, - Walk high above the treetops and, in good weather, look 100 km into the distance on the Waldwipfelweg (The Walkway High Above the Forest), Visit the “Upside-Down House”, where even all the furnishings are topsy turvy, confusing your senses, Walk along the Baumwipfelpfad (Treetop Walk), which at over 1.3 km in length is one of the longest and most spectacular treetop trails in the world and leads to an enormous tree tower. Here, you can safely and comfortably climb up to a height of 44 metres and see far into the distance over the Bavarian Forest, sometimes even catching a glimpse of the Alps. TOP TIP: A special experience for families is the Monte Kaolino, a huge and 120 m high sand mountain near Amberg. There is a summer toboggan run, an adventure golf course, a large dune outdoor pool, and you can even go sand-skiing in the summer. Pure adventure for young and old! Guests from near and far can look forward to all of this and much more! 2 Upside-Down-House 3 Monte Kaolino 1 Baumwipfelpfad (Treetop Walk): www.baumwipfelpfad.bayern/ bayerischer-wald-en 2 Haus am Kopf (Upside-Down House): www.waldwipfelweg.de 3 Monte Kaolino: www.montekaolino.eu www.ostbayern-tourismus.de 39
