    Eight powerful castle ruins line up along the cross-border tour. Enigmatic stories and legends, mighty lookout cliffs, wild forest landscapes and romantic villages make every hiker's heart beat faster. From the start in the idyllic resort of Schönau, the path immediately leads steeply up the mountain to the bizarre "Schlüsselelfelsen" and on to the first namesake, the Wegelnburg, where you can expect a mighty 360 degree view.At the "Kaiser Wilhelm Stein" you cross the border to France and reach the castle ruins Hohenbourg. From the viewing platform you can already see two other destinations of the tour, the castle ruins Loewenstein and Fleckenstein. By the way, the devil himself is supposed to have built the fountain of the castle. After a descent to "Fleckensteiner Weiher" follows the ascent to the hidden castle ruins Froensbourg. Past the mysterious "Gypsy rock" you continue to the legendary Wasigenstein castle ruins.Along the Sauer and the Steinbach, the path leads on to the castle ruin Arnsbourg, which towers over the small village Obersteinbach. Passing the lookout cliffs "Wachtfelsen" and "Bayrischer Windstein", the hidden castle ruin Blumenstein appears on the way. Past the "Wengelsbacher Hals", the path leads down to the "Wengelsbachtal" and back to Schönau. Along the Sauer you can split the tour into two day tours.
