Spring in Germany is full of fresh green leaves, colourful blossoms and fun things to do. The country is a great destination no matter the season, but with Spring fast approaching, we feel it’s a great time for a trip to Germany.
Spring has the fewest tourists, which is great for you because prices can be much lower than other times of the year. Castles, museums, markets, really everything is open, and not only are there fewer people getting in your photos, but you will typically have some gorgeous flowers beautifying the area.
Below, we will give you some locations for the best Spring trip to Germany during the months of March, April, and May.
Hiking and Biking in Eichstätt
Eichstätt is a traditional Bavarian city, conveniently located between the two major cities of Munich and Nuremberg. It is on the smaller scale of cities in Bavaria but has a lot to offer. A paradise for hiking cyclists, the Altmühltal region offers challenging hiking and biking trails for any biking enthusiast. And you can experience nature in the Altmühltal, individually and actively. A true hiking and biking vacation for young and old, our recommendation is to follow the Altmühltal Panoramoweg or Radweg, which follows the Altmühl river along 200km of historic cities, ancient castles, and splendid palaces. In addition, you may wish to take a detour and discover one of the famous local lithographic limestone quarries, such as the quarry of the fossil collector Blumenberg, where you will be greeted by a life-size Allosaurus skeleton at the entrance. And our IBB Hotel Altmühltal-Eichstätt is conveniently located in the heart of the city, giving you the perfect base for all the sites around the area.
