    Breathe wideDeep valleys, bright clearings, plateaus with surprising views: hiking in the Franconian Forest opens up unexpected horizons for the eyes and soul! In the face of the greatness of nature, our everyday fears and worries become void and small. We breathe space and find ourselves.The views that our "whetstone maker path" offers you are fascinating, but the insights into the history and stories of our region are also fascinating! Since the path - partly along the fairy tale trail - has a comfortable length, you should not miss a few detours:With a look at Lauenstein Castle, you will learn interesting facts about this monumental structure in the very north of the Franconian Forest. At 700 meters above sea level, you have an impressive view from the tower of the Thüringer Warte over the Green Belt, the former death strip, which here could at least be overcome with the eye. The whetstone quarry is also worth seeing: who knows how far away the slate stones for sharpening scythes and sickles were sold?
