Today again with novel and flood of images :-)I normally shy away from such a long journey, but with their tours and tips Martina and Ronny67 made this tour so tasty that I couldn't resist. Tasty in the truest sense of the word, even the ice cream parlor was perfect. Thanks to you.This tour packed with highlights is really worth a trip. It starts with a path that is difficult to find and if nothing had hung a sign of the Way of St. James, we would have thought we were wrong. To warm up, the waiting tower was on the list, a small tower in the middle of the forest, which we later recognized from the hill opposite. Meticulously planned, an ice cream (this time with 3 balls) should strengthen us for the upcoming tour after a short stroll through the old town. Wertheim is beautifully situated on the quietly flowing Main and invites you to linger and be amazed. From the bank it went straight up a long zigzag staircase to Wertheim Castle. For 2 € you can pass a turnstile and visit the incredibly large castle with many corners to be discovered. An edition that is definitely worth it. Shortly before the exit, a wooden staircase is installed, which gives the impression that it is going to the restaurant, there are also no signposts. Curiosity pays off here. Suddenly there is a staircase around two corners, and in the end you can actually go up to the tower, which we almost missed. After leaving the castle we had just 6 km and almost two hours behind us. Another 20km should follow. Narrow paths, sometimes wider paths, then the White Tower, the courtyard garden and the little castle are already 2 km away. The landscape changed completely into high meadows swaying in the wind, the Main flowed quietly alongside, then the crossing of the particularly wide lock with an additional bridge. Here the entry into the adventurous path was not exactly straightforward and led through a green tunnel, suddenly a small quarry, and only following the path on Komoot between and through old building remains. The climb was worth it, an idyllic path along the “ridge” awaited us. I didn't have the course of the tour in mind and was therefore all the more astonished when the impressive tunnel portal from 1881 suddenly opened up on the narrow footpath. With the Grafiti decorated steel gate, it also looked different from a conventional tunnel. A paved path with a sidewalk that didn't seem to fit the year of construction also disturbed the normal feeling. The deeper you went, the more weird it got. Total darkness, no light that announces the end of the tunnel, strange noises further back. The noises turned out to be water dripping from the ceiling, again and again large indentations in the sides of the tunnel, in which several people could easily hide. Always in the expectation when it would get lighter, suddenly the surprise. The tunnel was bricked up, a door opening was left open. It looked more like a ruin, did you go out here? Far from it, the tunnel continued, but without asphalt, only with gravel, some indentations were not completely completed. The longer we went, the faster we became and the question arose whether it might be locked in the end. Suddenly, the tunnel made a bend, a little light. Seldom had I felt 730 m long and never before had a tunnel been so exciting. We were so caught up in the experience and the cold that had driven us to the bone that we hardly noticed for a long time that the path was now rather boring and only had to be completed. Finally, we were rewarded with a wonderful view of Wertheim Castle. Thanks again to Martina and Ronny for the great tips.
