Hiking Highlight (Segment)
A circular walk straight into nature
The Pfalzbach Gorge is located just outside Neustadt an der Aisch. A 7.5 kilometer circular route (marking N3) leads from the fairground over the site of the former Franconian royal court Riedfeld into the middle of untouched nature. After the residential development, the Pfalzbach circular route plunges into a landscape in which nature is largely left to its own devices. First of all, the path runs through a narrow valley cut through the soft clay deposits of the Lehrberg strata. Partially equipped with stepping stones, the path climbs gently, then becomes steeper, up to the plateau of the sandstone. From here you can enjoy the wide view over the Aish valley and the foothills of the Frankenhöhe. On the paved road to the right, the café at the airport invites you to take a break with coffee and cake on Sundays and public holidays.
It goes back through old orchards into the Pfalzbach gorge to the "Rote Marter",

The easy hike leads - quite surprisingly - even in front of the last houses of Neustadt (Aisch) in a jungle en miniature: watercourse, undergrowth, trees and the many dead wood remained here largely left to itself and have sometimes combined into bizarre forms. This small treasure of natural landscape is crowned by a number of stately trees (mostly ash trees), which can rise up to a height of 50 meters.
After crossing the gorge, you will find yourself on a plateau with a beautiful view, which forms a charming contrast.
