    Easy tour along the beautiful Wiesent past several mills. Easy climb to the hill west of the Wiesent starting at the coffee Krems below the castle Rabeneck direction Heroldsberg / Hubenberg. If you are under-challenged, you can take a loop over Rabeneck Castle. You can also extend the hike over Heroldsberg or Hubenberg (Gasthaus Polster), with beautiful views of the heights of the Franconian Switzerland. At the end of the walk, the Waischenfeld Castle is decorated with a wonderful panoramic view of the town.
