    Breathe wideDeep forests, 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 focus of our “bait tour” is the Mauthaus drinking water storage facility, the largest water management facility in Bavaria. Because the reservoir is fed by the Tschirner, the Nordhalbener and finally the Nurner Ködel, it is better known under the name "Ködeltalsperre". A 12 kilometer long tarred forest road goes around the lake, which was completed in 1973 and which we also follow for a short distance. The dam is even more impressive from the Ködelblick, which is around 50 meters higher: Here you can better assess the dimensions! When fully dammed, the lake is 250 meters wide and 4.4 kilometers long; At 60 meters, the dam is the highest in Bavaria; and drinking water, the Ködeltalsperre delivers an annual average of 400 liters per second.But the Ködeltour shows that it's not just superlatives that count: Time and again, small, unexpected forest aisles reveal a view of the Rodach Valley. On the Nurner Brocken, a seating group invites you to linger and enjoy the landscape. Depending on the time of year, the sweet peas along the way offer a delight for the senses: the flowers are pleasing to the eye and the wild raspberries and blackberries taste delicious! The starting point of our tour is the information center of the Franconian Forest Nature Park in the former train station. In addition to nature, old trades in the region are particularly important here. Do you want to know what a Schanzenbinder is? Then let's go!
