Easy hiking tours
Easy walks through apple meadows and vineyards. Theme trails for families with children. And the Waalwege – do you already know them? They are canals for irrigating the meadows. Level watercourses that especially fascinate pleasure hikers. The Schenner Waalweg, which leads from the spectacular Masulschlucht gorge above Schenna through spruce forest and apple trees, is highly recommended. Or the Maiser Waalweg, which runs just below our village. Explore both!
