Baden-Württemberg: German hiking day comes to an end: hiking association is satisfied

For a week, the focus was on hiking in the Remstal near Stuttgart. Thousands came together to walk together at the German Hiking Day. However, the heat also played a big part on the way.

Fellbach (dpa/lsw) - After a week full of hikes and guided tours in the Remstal, the organizers are satisfied with the German Hiking Day despite the heat wave. "The entire Remstal showed itself from its best side with the extensive tour and supporting program," said the President of the German Hiking Association, Hans-Ulrich Rauchfuss. "We have seen many happy and satisfied hikers from all over the Republic." Despite the heat, the hikes and events were well attended. However, Rauchfuss did not name any figures.

The 121st German Hiking Day comes to an end on Sunday in Fellbach with a procession (2:00 p.m.) and a ceremony (10:30 a.m.) in the presence of Prime Minister Winfried Kretschmann (Green Party). After the start of the hiking and supporting program last weekend in Fellbach and in the Remstal east of Stuttgart, a total of around 200 mostly accompanied hikes, tours or city visits were on the program.

According to the association, the German Hiking Day is the largest hiking event in the world. For more than 120 years, the DWV has been inviting people to a region together with a member association. "Hiking day capital" this year was Fellbach at the foot of the 470 meter high Kappelberg. At the hiking day in Bad Wildungen in northern Hesse, only around 3,000 hikers were counted last year due to the severe corona restrictions. The year before, the event had to be postponed due to the pandemic.
