16 places in Germany to enjoy hidden gems in nature with local recommendations from every Bundesland
We recently shared our first collab blog series "German bloggers share their favourite spots in Germany – all outdoors and socially distant!", where travel bloggers from all over Germany share their favourite things to do in their home region. We were able to create a comprehensive list of off-the-beaten-path sights from local experts from all over Germany.
We want to be prepared for socially distant travel as soon as the current COVID regulations allow for it - and visiting a wide variety of lesser-known spots in nature is the perfect way to start exploring again. We were able to compile a lot of inside knowledge and hidden gems from every "Bundesland" or federal state - from the mountains of the south to the islands of the north and from the towns of the east to the rolling hills of the west. Whether you're into hiking or enjoying views, whether you're alone, with your family, or with your dog - we've got you covered! This is the perfect guide for a Germany road trip but of course, you can also reach all places with public transport.
