    What could be better than being awakened in the morning by the rustle of the leaves and the singing of the birds? If you wake up in your tent on the large tent meadow of the scout house Lindersberg, exactly this idyll awaits you. Welcome to the Franconian Switzerland!Today it remains idyllic. Right at the beginning you roll down to the Wiesent. Along the small river you first drive a few kilometers warm - but then it goes to the point for the first time: The rise up to the castle ruins Neideck really has it. The good thing: At the top you are awake in any case and you will be rewarded with an absolutely unforgettable view. Sit down on one of the old walls and treat yourself to a little snack!In the course you will learn a typical peculiarity of the Franconian Switzerland know: it goes constantly up and down - flat passages rarely expect you today. You keep coming back to interesting places. At impressive caves for example, at hidden wells or quaint rest stops. It's best to put the holiday gear on, take it easy and take a look to the left and right - it will be worth it!If you want to shorten the tour a bit at the end, you can simply omit the last dangling along the Wiesent at Behringersmühle and instead stop in peace at the inn on site. After that, it is not far to the final destination: the campsite Franconian Switzerland is one of the most beautiful campsites in the whole region. In nearby Pottenstein you also have plenty of opportunities to end the day entertaining.
