Rest and relaxation

Rest and relaxation

Take a step back from everyday life – make sure you get the right work-life balance. Find peace and quiet. Leave all your cares behind. A real "break" from the hustle and bustle of daily life. Stress can stay away. Saunter through our landscape. It does not matter if you choose the fresh smell of spring. Or the lush green summer pastures. Or the beautiful colours of the leaves in the forests in the autumn. And not forgetting the dreamily icy winter landscapes. All that matters is you are out and about. Without any "pressure". You can get a new lease of life here. What more do you want ...

Panorama Path

The Panorama Path encircles the large district town of Schwandorf and extends for around 90 km. The footpath mainly follows natural routes and paths with only slight inclines. The Panorama Path offers lots of viewing points from which you can see the area surrounding Schwandorf, the Upper Palatinate Lake District as well as Schwandorf itself. There are places to stay the night and get a bite to eat roughly every 5-15 km. Each person can divide the route up into their own different stages.

Three Castles Path

The Three Castles Path, which is roughly 30 km long, leads from Nittenau through mixed forests of pine and beech trees to the pastureland of the River Regen. The three castles of Hof am Regen, Stefling and Stockenfels, which are located close together, still overlook the valley today and bear testament to their great strategic importance in the Middle Ages.
