Staying Fit While Traveling: Würzburg, Germany

To stay in touch, follow me on Instagram: main account, food account, exercise account

In July, we visited Germany for three weeks. I will share some impressions from the trip in the coming weeks.

Würzburg is my hometown and is also the beginning of the Romantic Road. In addition, it's a stop for many of the popular river cruise ships, and there is truly so much to see and do.

Today, I will take you on one of my exercise routes while in Germany. I walked over the bridge up to the fortress numerous times. If you really want to get a good workout in, you can jog it. There is a nice elevation gain, and the views are simply breathtaking. You almost don't notice that you are exercising. Almost. I'll mostly let the photos speak for themselves.

I started at the city hall tower. 

Then I crossed the Alte Mainbrücke.

There are many stairs leading up to the fortress, which makes for a great workout.

The first view of the city.

But we are not at the top yet. Have to go up the hill some more.

More stairs.

And more stairs, going down this time.

And we are back at the bridge. Want to come with me next time?

Staying Fit with Workout Apps

In addition to our walks - most days we got 20,000 steps or more - I also did the 7-minute workout and used The Yoga Collective app. Yoga workouts are so beneficial when you travel, and The Yoga Collective even has specific travel flows, which feel amazing after a long flight or sitting in a train for a long time.

Overall, I am happy that I was able to stay fit while traveling while not going overboard. I had originally planned to get some gym workouts in, but that didn't work out as planned, but it was honestly ok. I don't think I lost much in terms of strength or conditioning while we were gone and was able to get back to my regular workouts once we got home.

Question: How do you stay fit while traveling? 

Be well,
