Hiking Highlight (Segment)
Really beautiful path (path) along the Rotbach, lined with old beech trees. Here you should definitely walk along just with dog just great. There are many ways to cool off in warm weather and to sniff much. The meandering brook is surrounded by wild and romantic nature and the trail follows him almost exclusively. As a result, the ground is natural, uneven and interspersed with roots. So sure-footed and sensible hiking boots are required.
