Fasting and hiking: hotel Ödhof - an insider tip of the Bavarian Forest

The 4* hotel Ödhof is in immediate proximity of the river “Schwarzer Regen”, surrounded by dark forests and light meadows. Far from the noise of the street and the burden of everyday life, you can enjoy the fullness of nature as well as the silence. Just as it is so important for our fasting guests. Many of the beautiful hiking trails in the Bavarian Forest can be explored directly from the hotel. In the surrounding location there is also much to explore. Therefore, this fast-hiking program offers a mixture of interesting hiking routes in the surroundings, as well as selected longer routes to the hiking attractions of the Bavarian Forest.

In autumn you can explore the beautiful "Indian Summer" of the Bavarian Forest, which makes every heart beat faster with its beautiful colours. The different stages and hiking trails are a lot of different eye catchers, along picturesque rivers, ancient ruins and colourful hills and forests. However, the early summer shows the Bavarian Forest in thousands of shades of green when everything sprouts. At that time, it is still not too hot, so the tours are easy to handle.

After every hike you can spoil yourself in the hotel. Make a round in the in-house daylight swimming pool or enjoy the sun rays on the sunbed in the beautiful garden, there is something for every guest. Explore our sauna area with Finnish sauna, organic sauna and steam bath. To relax you can also have a massage or some cosmetics. The balance between rest and movement (hiking) can be nicely combined. Those who have not had enough yet can also use the gym or get wet by playing a round of tennis.

Fasting in the hotel Ödhof is a nice mixture of activity and relaxation, company in the group, but also peace and time for yourself. All rooms have a balcony and as a special advantage we offer our fasting guests the comfort double room for a single room price.

Since this fast-hiking-program is a special program with intensive care, it can only take place in quantity of 6 persons. Book early and secure your place in the fasting group, which will conquer the 8 thousand hikes of the Bavarian Forest.
