Find out where walking is heading

At WALK, the competence centre for hiking, our aim is twofold: to inform people about walking and also to develop walking as an activity. In our information area, we offer walkers information about walking: about regional and national trails, cultural and health offers in the region as well as infrastructure, accommodation and gastronomy. We also have exhibitions about the links between walking, nature, health, culture and history.

In the offices connected to our centre, you can find contact partners from the tourism industry, the Naturpark and regional development organisations. They analyse walking trends and help to actively shape the walking market. Here, projects that make walking more attractive in the region and beyond are created and coordinated, for example by improving the infrastructure and information. This all happens in close cooperation with project partners and walking associations.
