    On the Jungfernsteg and the Teufelssteg (legend has it that the Beelzebub was seen here in person), hikers cross the Selbitz, which flows through the Höllental.

    According to legend, a poor charcoal burner once rose up against the devil at night, who only stomped his horse's foot once in anger about it. And then the Höllental, the gorge to the left and right of the Selbitz river, was born. In fact, it was the Selbitz that dug up to 170 meters into the ground over millions of years. bayerische-staatsbaeder.de/de/ungestoertes-naturerlebnis/hoellental-bei-bad-steben

    The Höllental in the Franconian Forest is the section of the Selbitz river valley between Hölle and Blechschmidtenhammer in the Hof district. It is under nature protection. A pedestrian bridge over the valley, the Frankenwaldbrücke, has been planned since the mid-2010s. It should become the longest bridge of its kind.
    The narrow valley is traversed by the Selbitz, which after the end of the Höllental forms the border between Bavaria and Thuringia. From the end of the Second World War until the reunification in 1989, the border was not passable there. Geographically, the Höllental belongs to the municipalities of Lichtenberg, Issigau and Naila in the Hof district in Bavaria. Höllentalstraße, a private road that is closed to car traffic, runs along the western bank of the Selbitz. However, it can be used as a cycling and hiking trail. The Frankenweg, a long-distance hiking trail, leads through the Höllental and meets the Rennsteig at the end of the valley at Blankenstein. The Röhrensteig runs east of the Selbitz on the mountain slope on the pipeline, the water supply of a power plant. The plant at the northern end of the Höllental generates electricity with the water from the Selbitz, which is dammed up with a weir at the entrance to the valley in the south.

    At the end of the 19th century, the fine-grain diabase was dismantled to build the Höllentalbahn. Large rubble stones were used for the embankment retaining walls and for the large bridge.

    Right at the beginning of the Frankenweg, unfortunately not quite that way. I expected more.

    Super nice Tall, no matter if you walk inside or above the valley.

    The Höllentalstraße is a well-developed path for hikers and cyclists, well gravel and "board life". Surefootedness is not required here and the view is rather limited.

    The romantic Höllental with the viewpoints König David and Hirschsprung is one of the "hiking and cycling hot spots" in the Franconian Forest. Further sights: Jungfernsteg and Teufelssteg, Höllenthal hydroelectric power station with its 36 meter high water fountain.

    No matter how long you have lived in the area, you always have to go to the Höllental. Every season has its own charm, but especially in spring it is so fantastic

    Top hiking area, in which, however, surefootedness and good footwear are recommended or necessary.
