How can hiking promote health?

Hiking is a great way to enjoy the beauty of nature while reaping numerous health benefits. Find out more and discover these positive aspects with us.

Hiking is not only a wonderful way to experience the beauty of nature, but also offers numerous health benefits. It is an excellent form of cardiovascular exercise that improves heart health and can reduce the risk of heart disease. Hiking also helps to lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels, leading to overall better health and well-being. The physical exertion of walking builds strength and endurance, improves muscle tone and aids weight management.

But the benefits of hiking are not just limited to the body. The psyche also benefits. Hiking offers a valuable opportunity to switch off from the digital world and reconnect with nature. In our fast-paced, technology-driven society, taking the time to immerse yourself in nature can be incredibly restorative. This time out from the stresses of everyday life promotes a general sense of well-being and a feeling of fulfilment.

So lace up your hiking boots and set off to experience the many health benefits of hiking for yourself. We have put together an overview of the ideal hiking boots for you. Have fun browsing!



Choose one of the two hiking boots and start your adventure in the beautiful mountains and forests! Developed in the heart of the Alps, these hiking boots offer everything a mountaineer's heart desires. The shoe stabilises, cushions, provides support and pampers your feet. Thanks to the waterproof finish and the merino wool lining, your feet stay at a pleasant temperature in hot, cold, windy or snowy conditions. The padding, in particular the GIESSWEIN anti-blister heel, and the removable merino footbed prevent pressure points and guarantee a carefree hiking experience.
