May 26, 2020
On the Carl-Escher-Weg you hike through the scenic diversity of the northwestern district of Coburg and you can also look forward to some cultural highlights. The approximately 65 kilometer long path owes its name to a committed, former hiking guide of the Thuringian Forest Association. You can divide the hike into individual sections. So an overnight stay halfway in Bad Rodach is a good way to get there by train. In the places along the Carl-Escher-Weg you will also find different accommodation options.The starting point of the tour is the impressive Veste Coburg. After exploring the towers, state rooms and walls, you hike through the forest on Bausenberg to Rödental. There is a train station there, which is an alternative starting point. It goes along the Itz river to Rosenau Castle with its picturesque castle garden. After a visit to the castle worth seeing, you continue to follow the Itz to the next cultural highlight: from the Lauterburg ruin you can enjoy a beautiful view of the Thuringian Forest.The route runs up and down through the mountainous, forested landscape. On the Sennigshöhe you reach the highest point of the Carl-Escher-Weg and can stop at the Alexandrinenhütte. Then you hike through the idyllic villages of Oettingshausen, Heldritt, Lempertshausen and Roßfeld. On curved forest and field paths, you finally head to the local recreation area Hofmannsteiche near Weitramsdorf, where you can fortify yourself in the Naturfreundehaus.With new strength you tackle the last piece and reach the Coburg district of Neuses. Your destination is the beautiful Falkenegg Castle and in Neuses you will also find a connection to the rail network. Alternatively, you can end the day at Goldbergsee.
