Nürnberger Land planned a hike.
March 10, 2020
After a night in Brunn, a former beekeepers' settlement, you dive back into the magnificent Lorenzer Reichswald on the outskirts. The following section, the so-called "Seven Bridge Trail", is one of the most beautiful trails in the Reichswald. You hike along the rippling Röthenbach and in sunny weather you can enjoy an enchanting play of light between the mighty trees. Ancient oaks and beeches line the path and the roots in the sandy underground provide shelter for numerous animal species. After about seven kilometers you will reach the village of Ungelstetten, where you can take a well-deserved coffee break in the quaint Café Zur alten Scheune. The delicious cake variations are particularly popular. Rested, you hike up to the top of the Cold Fountain. Here the dune landscape of the Lorenzer Reichswald is particularly impressive and lets you forget all the hustle and bustle. We continue through the village of Moosbach, which is also a Zeidler village. Zeidlerei (= beekeeping) was previously widespread in this region and provided an important ingredient for the Nuremberg gingerbread. The goal of the fourth stage is in the town of Feucht, which not only offers you plenty of places to stop and sleep, but also three well-preserved castles. Even in Feucht you have a connection to the rail network and can shorten the dune path if necessary. Then you would miss the varied fifth stage.
