Hiking Highlight (Segment)
great view over the Rhine plain and into the quarry
Well signposted, narrow path with loose ground - also used by mountain bikers - good footwear is recommended
after the "ascent" through the vineyards, past the Strahlenburg on the circular path around the quarry and back through the vineyards to the plain approx. 6km

Always great, I hiked the way from the lower Schauenburg parking lot, over the Bluetenweg to the Strahlenburg and then steeply up to the vantage point just above the quarry. You can see the climbers and the sign Beware of danger to life and the fence has unfortunately not prevented a few bikers and hikers from climbing over the fence and settling on the edge of the cliff🙈
Aeh sorry, the more you do it, the more you do it ... And there is not just a sign along the way! Caution, danger to life !!!!
We enjoyed the view and then went back down the mountain in the direction of Schauenburg. I love this route, it is beautiful in every season 😍

The path over the Mount of Olives partly leads along the edge of the Schriesheim quarry and is steep and narrow in places and quite slightly demanding. From the top you have a great view of the quarry and the Rhine plain, when the weather is clear you can see as far as the Palatinate Forest.
At the Schwedenschanze there is a shelter that invites you to take a break.
