Bike Touring Highlight
From here you have a particularly beautiful view of Ortenberg Castle, the landmark of Ortenau and the surrounding vineyards. The first mentions of the palace, which was still a castle at the time, date back to the 11th century. Today the castle is used as a youth hostel. Overnight stays in single or double rooms are also possible on request. More information at: jugendherberge.de/jugendherbergen/ortenberg-20/portraet

The view is impressive. Ortenberg Castle overlooks the valley and the vineyard hillsides. The cycle path runs along the sides of the mountain going towards Gengenbach. In addition, a rest area at the foot of the castle is perfect for taking a break, a picnic or a siesta.
