Tips

  • Reini

    The valley is awesome, beautiful and long. However, you should wear really good shoes, because you often have to cross the stream at unsecured places. Especially in damp weather, the stones in the stream are slippery!

    The Monbach is on the main strand 9 km long stream on the eastern edge of the northern Black Forest, which flows between Bad Liebenzell and Unterreichenbach from the right into the middle Nagold. From the confluence of its source streams the Monbach flows through the nature reserve Monbach, Maisgraben and St. Leonhardquelle and the nature reserve of the same name. The protected areas essentially comprise the wildly romantic forest gorge, which the Monbach has been digging into the sandstone benches for around 350,000 years, and where it forms numerous small crashes. Purpose of protection is the preservation and protection of a unique geological source formation in Muschelkalk (St. Leonhardquelle) with their typical and species-rich animal and plant communities and the preservation and protection of the steep, rock-covered "Felsenmeer" slopes of the valley bottom and the water cascades of Buntsandsteinschlucht of Monbach their species-rich, the ravine and Hochstaudenwald überleitenden fern fir beech forest.

    beautiful popular recreational area, very populated towards the road. It is quieter in the upper part of the valley.

    Through the ravine, which in some places remains natural, leads a path that gives children the feeling of adventure and thus makes the hike much more interesting. Sturdy shoes are required!

    If you are looking for a refreshing, serene and secluded atmosphere on a hot summer sunday, you better go to an outdoor swimming pool ;-)
    Here it jams already at some brook transitions.

    Perfect for hiking with children. No boring walk but not too demanding. There is a lot to climb for the children without danger of falling. Towels are not wrong.

    A nice round even on hot days because everything is in the forest. When it rained it can be slippery and a bit mushy

    It's not for nothing that it's called the wild romantic Monbach Valley. Sturdy shoes should be.

    Beautiful nature trail that runs right along the stream. The stream has to be crossed in several places. The path is located directly in the protection of the forest, so it is easy to do even on warm days. You can only walk the path, there is no possibility for anything with wheels.

    A beautiful gorge for hiking for young and old. Multiple water crossings and now and then a bit of Krapseln.

    Wonderful hike through an idyllic valley and currently particularly lively in autumn, mosses and mushrooms thrive, and not as well-versed as on summer days😀

    A hiking tour of medium difficulty, not suitable for prams, signage a little sparse

    Safe footwear helps if you have to cross the water again and again on - usually wide - stones. But the landscape is breathtakingly beautiful. Children also have fun here when they can play by the water, on the stones or on the fallen tree trunks.

    You have peace and a lot of fresh air. Fixed hiking boots, best to the ankle you have a better stop. Hiking poles are recommended. And enjoy climbing and let the kids play.

    The path through the Monbach Gorge is particularly worthwhile in summer, as it is pleasantly cool in the valley and you can dip your feet into the water in some places. However, you will not be the only one
