NEWS FROM THE BLOCKLINE
May and June
The impact of Covid on tourism is difficult to predict for all of us.
But one thing is certain: The BLOCKLINE is already waiting for you with full signposting. We are ready for you to experience the BLOCKLINE now.
Let's go, local families and visitors, give it a try: You can check out the loops here and plan your adventure here.
Enjoy the BLOCKLINE with your household, please pay attention to the Corona guidelines and stay healthy!
If we have it our way, from July onwards you will be able to try out the BLOCKLINE as a complete package, including a cool adventure guide.
However, according to the Corona Emergency Braking Act, this will only work if the incidence levels in the county fall below 100. If that's the case, we're ready and looking forward to riding the BLOCKLINE with you.
Otherwise, if everything goes well, we are looking forward to celebrating the official opening party together with you.
On 9 July the BLOCKLINE will be officially opened in Holzhau by the invited guests.
On 10 July we will open the BLOCKLINE with a wonderful family festival in Blockhausen.
