Mallorca is known as the favourite island of the Germans. In summer, the island is packed with tourists from all over the world. However, in Winter it is a dream: calm, sunny with mild temperatures and good conditions for hiking trips. I recommend the Serra de Tramuntana. It offers nice walking routes, like the Ruta de Pedra en Sec. I stayed in Esporles, it is a village in the mountains. In Winter time you will basically find natives here. It is great to watch how people spend their time here. It shows you the real Mallorca. We stayed at the Hostal d’Esporles, a small place I can recommend for its food and hospitality.
