    The Lillach has a lot to offer, not only the sinter terraces, but also a real spring. The spring water flows beautifully from under a stone and across the path. Fantastic playground for children and a picnic area for all weary hikers. However, don't expect to be alone here. This hiking trail is too well known.

    Follow the path to Lillachquelle. Really nice to rest. Unfortunately only one table and in the summer always crowded. For kids barefoot or in rubber boots a fun.

    The Lillach rises east of Weissenohe and south of the Dornberg (503 m) a karst spring that pours at least 24, averaging 50 and no more than 108 l / s. The water swells to 463 m above sea level. NN from a small cave in the upper Jurassic of the Franconian Alb. Catchment area are the directly east lying plateaus. The layer source is designated by the Bavarian State Office for the Environment as Geotope (474Q004) [3].

    Great area for hiking. The dryness was during my visit to the source unfortunately not much water at the Sinterterassen.

    Have a question to those who already ran the way. Is it possible to get by with an electric wheelchair? Are the ways at least 1 m. Wide and what is the strongest slope, are there many strong branches in the ground?

    However, there are many fossils to be discovered on the site.

    Small geological gem. Nice to go with children, but in summer you are rarely alone.

    Is a very nice tour, unfortunately, as far as I have seen no refreshments. So take some food with you. Seating is available.

    Up to the sinter stairs, it is wide enough. But it's not up to the source. From the other side it is too steep I think.

    The spring flows out of the rock and gathers through a small bridge to the Lillach. The little hut opposite invites you to rest and offers protection in the rain.
