    My better half wanted to use the beautiful day for a hike. But since I didn't want to drive far away, a destination in the vicinity was required. Wolfsegg and its castle were still unknown to me, at least from a personal visit. So off to Heitzendorf with dog and wife and from there first along the Naab through the shady forest. Immediately after the first ascent you could see the valley, but it was not very attractive. Along the Naab, the path led through beech forests and mixed forests. The view of the Naab was only cleared again at Duggendorf. But there you have a very nice view.
    After the view, it goes downhill again for the first time, and then straight up again steeply. Unfortunately, the route suggested by Komoot is blocked with fallen trees. But since we were still quite fresh, that wasn't a real obstacle for us - even the dog got through the bottom without any problems 😄. However, the ascent was more strenuous than originally planned and we were happy when we reached the highest point of the route.
    Shortly before Wolfsegg, we held our lunch at a rest area right in front of a Marterl. Freshly strengthened, we went a short distance through a beech forest and then through the village towards the castle. Contrary to my original expectations, this part was only downhill - I would have expected an increase on a castle hike. Wolfsegg was actually built in a valley. And therefore not visible from afar. Perhaps that is also one of the reasons why the castle is still so well preserved to this day and was not destroyed in the Middle Ages. On the contrary, it has been restored and is owned by the municipality. Inside there is a museum that depicts life quite beautifully at the time. Household items, a kitchen, a hall, musical instruments - you can find a lot from that time.
    Interesting: The rock on which the castle stands (yes, you have to go up a little bit), houses a very large cave. This is even accessible from the castle, but not open to tourists. Back then you could certainly have a few surprises when the castle fell into strange hands ...On the way back to Heitzenhofen we shortened a little through the forest, because the steep section with the trees over the path is also dangerous on the descent. Instead, our return route led partly over gravel forest roads.
    In addition to the views of the Naab Valley, the castle and the beech forest, there were also small delights from the local fauna. So we found some places where autumn crocus bloomed. Very nice to look at, but unfortunately poisonous and therefore nothing for the garden at home.
