Nordic Walking

Most people on a short holiday in Bad Sooden-Allendorf want to be active and not just sit on a bench looking over the river Werra (which is definitely also a pleasant way of spending the day). Active holidays are becoming more and more popular, also here in North Hesse. Nordic Walking perfectly complements other health-promoting activities such as visiting the graduation house, the thermal bath ″WerratalTherme“ as well as the traditional wellness and health treatments.

In and around the town, you will find six way-marked Nordic Walking routes. It is a fun way to get fit in the fresh air and to get to know the region and the beautiful landscape.
