Sunshine and light powdered sugar from the snowfall at night have enchanted the landscape with wintry, so the best hiking weather. Today's tour I had put together from several tours of other Komootler. We started at the Wittgensdorf hiking car park at the train station. On the Chemnitztalweg to Draisdorf and across the field to the Sechsruthenwald. Took a photo at the mouth of the Seidelmann cave and continued uphill through the forest. The following section on the Grenzsteig is beautiful, the kingfisher will definitely be seen on the banks of the Erlbach in spring, so I have to go again. Over the farm road and through the settlement go to the train to Lichtenau. The two kilometers by the train weren't worth a photo. We continued through the parish fir trees to hell and to the old forest stage in Garnsdorf. The harvester did a great job, there's not much left of Hell. I didn't know the cross connection to the renovated stone bridge over the Chemnitz. Past the lovingly renovated Auerswalde-Köthensdorf train station and through the Unterdorf from Köthensdorf to the Schusterstein high above the meander of the Chemnitz. A worthwhile destination, which several other hikers had chosen today. Thanks again for the delicious homemade rum balls. We then went back to the Chemnitztalweg via the steep bank path. All in all a really nice and varied round in the Chemnitz area.
Today's tour in a 15 km radius has been buzzing around in my head for a long time. Inspired by the Chemnitz model, I was on the trail of the disused railways from Limbach Oberfrohna. We started at the train station in Oberfrohna where the railway line from Chemnitz ended. The section between Kellers and Oberfrohna will probably also be part of the new tram route. One can only hope that the viaduct on the Kellerwiese will be renovated and preserved. Limbach am Ostring station is in a pitiful state. The platform superstructure is a listed building, but the city has no concept here and probably also does not have the necessary money. In 2021 it will be over for good, the excavators will come. We continued over the Pleißenbach viaduct to the substation in Röhrsdorf. This section would still be used for transformer transports until it was closed in 1994. The further route to the Schützenhaus junction was closed on December 31, 1950. The last relics of the autobahn bridge over the Auritztal Viaduct hit the A4 on the collar. In memory of the old railway line, there is the Eselsbrücke on the road to Oberrabenstein. The viaduct in Rabenstein is a listed building and the city has planned the means for renovation and maintenance. Will probably also happen as part of the preparations for the Capital of Culture.
The city of Chemnitz is planning the further course to Wüstenbrand as a cycle path with a connection to the existing BahnRadweg to Lugau. The tracks are currently completely dismantled and the sleepers shredded. So it can start. We went back over the Tannmühle and the source of the Frohnbach, as well as through the Limbach pond area. A varied and interesting tour.Source reference: de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bahnstrecke_Limbach%E2%80%93W%C3%BCstenbrand

The pictures are a bit confused, but it was a wonderful spring tour, the Chemnitz Valley, the Muldetal and then the ascent over the Schiller path through the Dölitzschgrund is a stunner. There were more hikers than ever in Wechselburg, both parking lots full. Fortunately, we passed the hotspots.
What should I call spring or late winter tour, at least we had mulled wine with us, because for the first 12 km we were really alone, at the Mühlgraben on the Mühlwiese we saw a kingfisher in the great outdoors for the first time was the highlight of the tour, in the photo it is only a blue dot. The Frohnbach valley is untouched and unspoilt, not a soul because hardly anyone knows it. Power and fresh air for the busy next week. Stay healthy and keep your distance.
After my planned bike tour froze to death, I quickly left for 🥾 in the direction of Selva, without a fixed destination, and after the direction of Burgstádt off the beaten track. The Frohnbach valley between Wetzelmühle and Lochmühle is fantastic and untouched. The economic route from the Mulde valley with a view of the motorway bridge is also worth seeing.
In the best weather through the autumnal nature of LO to central Saxony. The paths are rather little known and committed. In particular, the Voselbachtal from the Chemnitztal to Diethensdorf is little known and really very nice. Otherwise, I had on the tour fascinating views in the small towns in the surroundings of Chemnitz 🥾
The Chemnitz motorway junction was explored without a car, it is surprising how many passages and bridges with great views there are. The only drawback, it is really loud. Anyone who comes up with the idea to sit on the benches directly on the motorway knows the fox or the Autobahnmeisterei
This tour is unique, because with komoot you can't plan it the way I did it. 2 railway bridges and a disused tunnel that is not a suggested route. Back to the beginning, my plan was to combine the Muldetal and Chemnitztal with the Wiedertal and the relatively unknown natural area monument Klinkholz between Wiederau and Stein. I started in Lunzenau on the market, unfortunately also a forgotten place. The city has a morbid and antiquated charm, and is also deserted. Well, the demographic development cannot be stopped in Saxony. So quickly out of the city and down the valley to the Göhrener Viaduct. I think it's number three in Saxony after Göltzsch- and Elstertalbrücke. We continued to the confluence of the Chemnitz in the Zwickauer Mulde. To get to the other bank, all that remains is the Muldetalbahn railway bridge, which is only used by the Trabi. The hiking trail along the Chemnitz upstream to Göritzhain is really great. The herons and gray geese always noticed me earlier, nothing with pictures. I left the hiking trail in front of the paper factory and hiked on to Seitenhain via field and farm roads. The two kilometers through the place were also interesting, but more for the residents, for whom I was the exotic. Well, we continued over the Kuhbach into the Wiedertal to the Langmühle in Wiederau. The restaurant was closed 2 years ago, a shame, but it would have been closed today. From Wiederau we went to Klinkholz for a mulled wine break. A beautiful spot, ponds and a halfway intact forest, what more could you want. Well strengthened on to Stein. At the elevated tank above the village you have a fantastic view of the surrounding area. Chemnitz with the colorful chimney, the Wittgensdorf water tower, the Taurastein tower and of course the Rochlitzer Berg. A wonderful 360 ° panorama. The Wiederberg down to Göritzhain to Chemnitz and through the village back up to Cossen and Berthelsdorf. In Bertheldorf I also met the Muldetalbahn again. So this time over the railway bridge on the Amtmannsfelsen and on through the tunnel to Rochsburg. Following the tracks, mountain bikers have already passed through there. From Rochsburg we went over the Bilz hiking trail, the Märchenwiese and through the Heinrich Heine Park back to the market in Lunzenau. A successful round, happy to go hiking. Don't get caught, at the bridges and in the tunnel, the cell phone light is enough.
Thanks to Biko, there is only a public holiday in Saxony to pray and repent, or to go out. Going out is also a bit to find oneself. So put on your hiking boots, pack your backpack with mulled wine in it and go out into nature. Today's tour started in the Auenpark zu Frankenberg, which was completely redesigned as part of the 2019 State Horticultural Show. The paths, planted areas, play and fitness equipment and of course the modern and imposing arched suspension bridge into the center of Frankenberg are an asset for the region. And there is a free parking lot.
At the eastern exit of the Auenpark you reach the Zschopau and the A4, you can't be seen immediately but you can hear you. It doesn't quite fit the near-natural Zschopau riverside path. After a few hundred meters, the traffic noise is no longer noticeable. The hiking trail always goes close to the bank with a view of the slowly flowing Zschopau and some anglers downstream to Sachsenburg. Past the information board about the former concentration camp and the associated Rochlitz porphyry monument to the Sachsenburg suspension bridge.
We continued downstream to Krumbach to the "Anna" cable ferry. Unfortunately, today's planned highlight had a winter break since the end of October. In this weather, of course, a shame, but it didn't help. The tour adjusted and rescheduled a bit and it went back via Biensdorf to Sachsenburg. From there, past the new fish ladder, always along the bank to the motorway bridge and on via the dike defense path back to Frankenberg. It was a tour with many insights and impressions in the most beautiful sunshine and almost summer temperatures. Unfortunately, we didn't see any of the beavers found there. Perhaps there were too many hikers on the way. All in all a tour to hike after and / or to hike on to Mittweida.
