    Anyone who's ever on the cart must necessarily walk the root path to the top of the Staufens. The rather challenging path runs through a beautiful mountain forest. As the name suggests, you have to climb over roots all the time, which makes the Wandering Spirit even more exciting and keeps you going. When I walked this trail, I wished the trail would never stop. But after a good 50 minutes, you are finally at the destination: the top of the Stauf. It is a rather low peak, but that does not mean that you have no view. On the contrary, from the top you have a fantastic view of the Rhine Valley and Lake Constance.
    How to get to the root path: From the cart track mountain station you have to walk first direction Staufenspitze. At the second intersection, the root path is already on the trail sign turn off. After a few minutes, the turnoff comes, where the white-blue-white root path begins.

    If you have the opportunity to visit the cart during the week can z.Z. 17,00 € a ascent and descent incl. Lunch (dish of the day is valid for the whole week and is offered in three variants). The offer can be found on the website. Also this year, the viewing platform under the restaurant was put into operation.

    Nice panoramic restaurant (of course with a great view) with a large terrace and for the children there is a playground. The staff is also very friendly and accommodating. I can only recommend.

    The steep root path is only for experienced hikers with sturdy shoes.

    Attention, some paths from the Karren valley station to the mountain station are no longer available or are closed. That means please don't just rely on the GPS track in the tours. When I saw that it couldn't go any further, I had to run back and take the cable car. But there are certainly still paths to the mountain station that are still easy to walk.
    If you consider that, the hike to and around the cart is wonderful and really recommendable. Most, however, are demanding and only for experienced hikers. I had a really great day of hiking there.

    Magnificent view of a growing city. When I lived here 30 years ago, 41,000 people lived here. Now there are 50,000.

    On sunny days you should take your time and linger briefly.

    The ascent via the climbing path is short but not to be underestimated. The view definitely pays off. There is a skywalk made of glass for those who don't suffer from vertigo.

    The family hiking trail is sometimes quite steep, but also easy to manage with children.

    The ascent has quite steep sections and, as a family hiking trail, I call it challenging. The effort can be reduced by going up, down or both by train.
    The cart is a very good starting point for other nearby hiking destinations. You can put together and vary your hikes yourself in terms of duration and level of difficulty.
    The restaurant is very nicely located and offers a nice terrace and a very nice view. The restaurant services are rather average.
