Frankenwald planned a hike.

Hear the silenceWhere does the gentle hum of the forest bees come from? Where is the deer that quietly cracked the branch? Hear the sound of silence, enjoy the peace! Hiking in the Franconian Forest is a contrast to the sensory overload. New worlds of noise open up to the ear - and natural silence drowns out everyday life!Water gurgles, water rushes, water splashes ...If you not only hike our "Pfaffenbergweg" with open eyes, but also listen carefully, you will be surprised by the variety of water noises! The water is only a bit louder towards the Haßlach. The small forest streams that flow towards it practice themselves in quiet sounds. Again and again we cross forest streams or follow their course. Only up there, at the height of Marienroth, we leave the forest and streams behind us, listen to the wind blowing over the mountain ridge and enjoy the view of the Haßlach valley.Why is the Pfaffenberg called that? Perhaps the Protestant pastor from Rothenkirchen fled here in 1625. Because at that time the Bamberg prince-bishop Johann Georg II. Fuchs von Dornheim reinstated a Catholic one by force of arms. Perhaps the displaced person sat lonely on the mountain, thanking his God for getting away with his life, and listening to the meditative sound of the forest streams.
