Running and nordic walking

The morning dew and the fresh clear mountain air sures every late riser out of bed to start a nordic walking tour through the idyllic landscape.

A holiday in Lammertal could also be the start of your nordic walking career! Staves and the right shoes. More you don’t need for the new sport which is so popular in all age groups. In Tennengau there are a lot of signposted nordic walking routes.

There you can wonderfully enjoy the nature and making sport is very easy. For all guests of Lammertal with guestcard a free of charge 2-hour nordic walking basic course with trainer is offered.

Staves for your tours can be borrowed free of charge in the hotel and needn’t be taken with you from home.
