Hiking experience

In the Naturgarten Kaiserstuhl you will find beautiful trekking trails!

You can discover the Kaiserstuhl-Tuniberg region on foot by taking the well-signposted theme axes and educational trails. Nine theme axes tap the Kaiserstuhl from south to north and from west to east. All trails show the hikers green lizards, wild orchids, narrow passes, rare birds and many further natural treasures being completely unique in Germany. The Burgunderpfad (trail relating to Burgundy wine) goes right across the nature of the Tuniberg. The different trails being completed by local theme and educational circular trails in some municipalities always have a motto. It is already at the entrance of every trail that the hiker finds information about the route and the particularities of the chosen trail on large boards. An extensive and standardized signposted system of trekking trails has been developed in the whole Kaiserstuhl offering plenty of possibilities.

Here you can find our most popular tours.
