HILLS, FORTRESSES AND MEADOWS
Enjoy the town, stroll through the streets, go to the theater and concerts. It is all so lovely. And it is just as lovely to enjoy a leisure-time program in the natural surroundings of EMICH´S. Odenwald has much to offer, especially if you want to be active: hiking, cycling, golfing or on the Nordic Walking trails.
AS FAR AS YOUR FEET WILL CARRY YOU
Off you go, directly from Amorbach. All around the town there are about 35 well-signed hiking routes through silent forests, over meadows and narrow valleys. The hiking trail inaugurated in 2005 “The Odenwald Butterfly“, runs right past the town and like a butterfly, crisscrosses the whole of the Odenwald. Here the routes range from relaxed to challenging. Anyone who wants to learn more about the local sandstone does well to take the geo-path “Amorbach Sandstone Trail”. Ove a distance of about 5 kilometers there are 16 stations with information about the so-called “Odenwald Marble”. Or up and down on the award-winning hiking trail “Nibelungensteig“, over a distance of around 130 kilometers and a total altitude of 4000 meters from Zwingenberg on the mountain road to Freudenburg am Main. With Amorbach in the middle.
TEE OFF IN IMPRESSIVE SUUROUNDINGS
6 Golf courses are in the immediate area of Amorbach. About 10 minutes by car is the Golf Club Gut Sansenhof with an 18-hole course together with a 9-hole course open to the public. Here you don’t need to be a club member and no registration or starting times are required to hit a few balls and actively enjoy being out in nature. Other golf courses also offer challenging rounds with impressive views.
FUN & ACTION ON TWO WHEELS
Odenwald is ideal for all lovers of mountain-bike sport. It doesn’t matter if you are a beginner or if you just want to enjoy the sport or if you want a sporting challenge. The surrounding countryside offers routes ranging from flat and comfortable along the river Main through to extremely challenging uphill routes of low mountain quality. Steep descents and off-road stretches full of bends, past small rock formations and bridges. A mountain-bike tour through the Churfranken region is full of diversity and never boring. When you reach the summit you find the reward in the views over the romantic gently rolling hills down to the Main valley. For example, leave our EMICH´S Hotel and immediately join the route of about 30 km, 905 meter altitude “Around Amorbach”.
FROM FLATLAND TO A CHALLENGING HILLSIDE TOUR
Mild climate, clear air, nature’s landscapes as far as the exe can see. Gentle river valleys ideal for relaxing bike rides. More condition is needed for cycling up the hillsides of the Odenwald region. But then there is the reward for you in the wonderful views. As well as many well-maintained cycle paths there is also a 3-State Cycle Route, 225 kilometers through Baden-Württemberg, Hessen and Bavaria. Also on the Main-Tauber cycle route it is possible to take longer tours through the Odenwald, a forest shrouded in legend. We are waiting for you here in the hotel and will make your bed for you!
ACTIVE WALKING AND FIT WITH 2 STICKS
Since 2009 Amorbach is a center for Nordic Walking. There are four Nordic Walking routes all certified by the DSV. There are three levels of difficulty to choose from. An easier route, one at medium level and two more challenging routes lead through the Nature Park Odenwald and if you wish, you can include a visit to places of interest such as the Gotthard Ruins or the Neudorfer Heights.
