KEEN Footwear planned a hike.
February 9, 2021
The Thiesenring is one of the most beautiful hiking trails in northern Bavaria. The tour impresses with exciting castle ruins, fantastic nature and great panoramic views over small Franconian villages and vast forests. It starts at the parking lot at the Anger in Bad Berneck. You can also get to the starting point via Bayreuth by public transport. The path is marked with a red fir tree on a white background.It is particularly practical that you hike around the town of Bad Berneck on the Thiesenring. In the event of a sudden rain shower or acute hunger and (beer) thirst, you can take a quick trip to town and stop off at an inn. Incidentally, the Thiesenring was named after Carl Thiesen, a Berlin printing company owner. He spent his spa stays in Bad Berneck and was so enthusiastic about the small town that he bequeathed part of his fortune to the community.The path first leads you over comfortable forest and meadow paths to the Rotherfelsen. For these first hundred meters you will be rewarded with a magnificent view over Bad Berneck. It continues with a slight up and down to the Hohenberneck castle ruins, one of a total of six fortifications in and around Bad Berneck. It is no coincidence that this region is also called Burgenland. A little later you will reach the idyllic Ölschnitztal via the Knodental and the Schlossleitenweg.You walk past several promising rocks such as the Thiesenfelsen and the Ludwigsfelsen. You should definitely stop at each of them and enjoy the panorama. Finally the path leads you back to the starting point.
