    As a varied summit tour, the Nordkette proves to be the 1000-meter circular walk. It takes you on some roofs of Frankenalb and to striking viewpoints with magnificent views of the Nuremberg countryside. On the challenging route with some steep climbs and steep descents, beautiful forest passages provide cooling shade in summer.The tour starts at the parking lot Holz Pirner in Nürnberger Straße in Pommelsbrunn. From there it goes up to the Naturfreundehaus. Above the Blockschutthalde leads a beautiful path in the mountain forest to the castle ruins Lichtenstein, which invites you to a small breather at about 507 meters. Then head north, past the Pleßelberg and up to the Leitenberg summit (617 meters). After the long forest passage, it goes downhill, along a clearing and meadows direction Heuchling.Along the orchards and the outskirts Appelsberg the route leads you back into the forest and up to the Hofberg summit (569 meters). Cross the plateau to the Zankelstein summit (547 meters). Certainly the highlight of the tour: the detour to the lookout cliff with stunning views of the country. Then follows the steep, somewhat dragging descent from Zankelstein down to Pommelsbrunn back to the starting point. If you wish to continue by public transport, you can reach the S-Bahn station through the railway underpass on Arzloher Straße.
