Volksmarching is a recreational form of walking that involves exploring an area and, often, socializing with other participants. Unlike competitive or fundraising walking events, volksmarching is undertaken for pleasure and social reasons and it is usually focused on experiencing an area's culture and scenery in an active manner. Typical lengths for a volksmarching event are 5-10km, but this range can vary significantly based on the event organizers and interests of participants. Although usually performed in groups, volksmarching may also be practiced a solo activity.
