Need to lay low for a while? Shake off civilization and live the bandit life for a weekend. Right in the heart of Germany, at the edge of the metropolitan Rhine-Main region, you’ll find a spot of natural beauty - the Spessart. In the 19th century, the wooded mountains used to be the number one hideout for robbers and outlaws fleeing the long arm of the law. Today, two perfectly prepared high-quality hiking trails let you safely cross the dark forests of the Spessart in three-day-stretches, providing a perfect micro-adventure for all nearby city dwellers. The tours begin and end at train stations, making it easy for you to start from and get back to the big cities of the region.
The first part of the second stage to Rothenbuch is beautiful.Shortly after Rothenbuch, however, the path runs for a long time parallel to the busy B 26. This street is from then on long audible and often visible. Those who are bothered by the experience of nature should perhaps choose a different path.Incidentally, the hike largely follows Spessartweg 1.
