The Heidelberg/Mannheim area is ideal for outdoors activities. The Odenwald forest is just on our doorstep, and the beautiful Pfalz region is only one hour by car or train. We organize hikes in these areas at least twice per month, along with an increasing diversity of other outdoor and indoor activities, like biking, canoeing, camping and in/outdoor climbing.

With the Alps within 4 hrs of driving, and the Schwarzwald even closer, there are also great options for longer trips - we organized several weekends away in 2013, and have plans for more.

New members are always welcome - as are ideas for events! The organizing team (Anna, Markus, Martin, Rachel, Rienk) arrange meetups on a regular basis - and are happy to receive suggestions - or, if you prefer, you can volunteer to organize an event (or events) yourself.

We look forward seeing you on our next event!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
