Mountain Biking Highlight
Planned by komoot
On your last stage, you will pass through one of the most beautiful forest areas in Franconian Switzerland. The Veldensteiner Forst is part of the heart of the Franconian Switzerland Nature Park and offers untouched nature and impressive rock formations.You leave Schermshöhe and shortly afterwards you pass the A9 motorway. But you can leave it behind quickly and dive right back into nature. First, it goes over some fields until you reach Plech. There are also several guest houses for a rest before you continue your hike.Immediately afterwards it goes into the Veldenheim Forest. Along the way you will meet again and again on huge rock formations. Most are well hidden in the middle of the forest and carry imaginative names such as ice holes, cuckoo holes or meat caves. Especially the many holes and caves are particularly impressive. Here it is worth a flashlight or a head light to have to explore the caves a bit. Only between October and April you should not enter the caves, because then overwinter here countless bats. The small fluttering animals are very sensitive to disturbances.After you have crossed the Veldenheim forest, you have almost arrived at your destination. Only a short distance over fields and meadows, you're back in Pegnitz at the station. After your five-day tour, you have earned yourself a hearty Franconian meal and, above all, a real Franconian beer. While you eat your fill, you already revel in your memories. And who knows, maybe you have already taken the Franconian Switzerland so much into your heart, that you will come back next time for the famous Franconian mountain route.
