The demand for relaxation and adventure in natural surroundings is increasing. If you are looking for active or sporty holidays but are unsure about their ecological impact, you won't find a better place to visit than Germany where outdoor activities go hand in hand with respectful treatment of the environment. Recently, activities such as hiking, cycling and Nordic walking have become increasingly popular.

If you would like to discover German woodland from a totally new and different perspective you should take a canopy tree walk in a German forest. Learn more about the impressive insights of the so far unknown world of the canopy and enjoy the rare view over the mosaic of the tree tops and their habitat.
A new way to protect the natural surroundings actively is to buy stocks in German Forests, a so called "Waldaktie". In Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania you can become a patron of a small tree. With the purchase and planting of this tree, you help to maintain the forests in the North-East of Germany and consequently contribute to a better climate world wide. Contact the regional tourist office for further details.
Cycling is one of the Germans' most favorite activities - not only a good cardio workout but it also keeps CO2 emissions low. You will find well maintained and signposted bike paths throughout Germany. Follow the Green Route in Western Germany or bike along Germany's rivers through picturesque landscapes. Many such trails will take you to scenic places, way off the beaten track. Find bike specialized guesthouses, bars and repair stations along the trail. You can also rent a bike at designated railway stations.
