The path along the Rhine River in Germany is about a five minute drive / 10 minute bike ride from my house.
The upper path is usually used by people walking on their own, whereas the path near the river is used by cyclists, people with children and/or baby strollers and dog walkers.
It's particularly beautiful in the fall. I avoid the path in the summer because of the masses of mosquitos.
I experience a special mood / atmosphere / feeling - the German word is "Stimmung" - when I walk along the path at sunset.
