Oberpfälzer Wald planned a hike.
September 2, 2020
On the third stage, dreamlike landscapes and places steeped in history await you. Today the Nurtschweg leads only a little through the forest and more over fields, so you have a nice unobstructed view. You leave Mähring in the south and then turn to the southwest. The forest through which the border to the Czech Republic runs is always in view. You cross the village of Griesbach and then dive into the forest for a short distance.On the adjoining fields that bring you to Hermannsreuth, you have a wonderful view. Now you are walking through a small forest again. There, where you step out again between the trees, your stage destination Bärnau is not far anymore. The rather small town has city rights because it is on the Golden Street. In the Middle Ages this was an important trade route between Nuremberg and Prague. If you are interested in this epoch, you can take a journey through time in the history park, an archaeological open-air museum.You can also visit the button museum in Bärnau. In general, there is everything in the village that a hiker's heart desires: shopping, refreshment stops and places to stay overnight.
