TourNatur is moving even closer together with the parallel fair for caravanning this year, when many attractive top hiking destinations are presented in Hall 14 of the Düsseldorf Exhibition Centre.
Among others, the countries and regions of Greece, Mallorca, Cyprus, the Panorama Trail Southern Alps, the Zillertal or the Kinzig Valley in the Black Forest will be taking part. But also tour operators such as Wigwam Naturreisen, Kleins Wanderreisen or Siabella will be on hand to provide hiking enthusiasts with advice and assistance at TourNatur.
Two themes in one space
With its location in Hall 14, TourNatur is right in the heart of the CARAVAN SALON exhibition halls and right next to Hall 15 where the focus is on camper vans. Opposite is the topically related Hall 12 with camping destinations.
The placement of TourNatur in the middle of the CARAVAN SALON is a real benefit for visitors to the fair. People who opt for a camper van are often also enthusiastic about outdoor activities and are increasingly looking for quiet spots in nature.
For active lifestyles
Hiking and trekking enthusiasts can obtain information from local experts at the stands about the various possibilities for active holidays in the great outdoors. A leisure activity which, according to the German Hiking Association (DWV), is experiencing a real boom this year.
Many people are discovering hiking in a new way and will stay with it in the coming years. So there will be more hikers in the future. In view of the large influx of outdoor enthusiasts, the association recommends to switch to less known paths or regions for a choice of holiday destinations.
Destinations for all ages
TourNatur offers the best opportunities for this with its wide range of destinations in the most diverse landscapes. The fact that hiking can also be a pleasure for families with small children is shown by the participation of the National Natural Landscapes e.V. and the Association of Nature Parks e.V. These beautiful and diverse protected areas in Germany are real treasure troves and can easily be explored with the youngest ones. At TourNatur, the nature ambassadors from the regions can be met at the joint stand “Experience Nature – Discover Your Natural Landscape”.
The quick accessibility and variety of hiking destinations around TourNatur in Düsseldorf have helped many people through difficult times and revealed relaxation and recreation in the great outdoors as a tangible experience. Locals in the state of NRW can really consider themselves lucky to have such special, unique and varied natural landscapes that invite to go hiking or cycling.
Magnificent local destinations
Among the scenic gems in North Rhine-Westphalia that are presented at TourNatur are the Ahr valley just outside Bonn. There, hikers can expect a picturesque backdrop in one of the smallest side valleys of the Rhine. Across an enormous 110 square kilometres, the Eifel National Park attracts visitors with extensive forests. Wild cats, red deer, eagle owls and other wild animals live there too. Meanwhile, the Paderborner Land inspires with exciting historical paths. The Neanderland Climb connects natural beauty and sights around Mettmann in the Rhineland on around 240 kilometres of trail just outside the gates of the state capital of Düsseldorf.
