I like hiking and treks- I've done "rifugio" (mountain hut) treks in Spain, Italy, Austria, Chile and Nepal. I've backpacked with tents in Egypt, Jordan, Israel, India and the U.S.

Lately I've gotten into bouldering.

@Paul No, your answer is fine (and very appreciated), but as you wrote, I'm just hoping for answers and opinions from more people, if possible.

@Paul Ideally, in huts/hotels/hostels ... we won't be bringing camping and cooking equipment with us. As for the scenery, it doesn't have to be mountainous forests, but it should be pretty enough that it makes sense to walk there during a visit to Germany, the kind of place that similarly-inclined tourists from other countries in Europe might go to.

When do you plan to go there? The season might affect the answer; it's probably more difficult to do so off-season.

This question on optimal trekking pole length is probably a useful supplement to this one.

comment Vibram FiveFingers, useful, gimic?
Personally, I use Vibrams for roughly 10k runs, and I prefer them over conventional running shoes. But you might want to take a look at these two, very popular questions on the Fitness StackExchange site: What are the downsides of minimalist runnings shoes? and experiences with 'barefoot' running - there are lots of opinions and facts there.
