    Through shady forests, this hike in the Bamberger hinterland leads from the Baunachtal valley over the eastern Haßberge foothills down to the Itztal valley, then back up to the ridges of the Kraiberges - views over to Schloss Banz and Vierzehnheiligen included. From the 330-meter-high vantage point "Kraiberg-Blick" the view then opens into the Main valley and over to Bamberg. Several brewery inns ensure that thirsty throats do not stay dry.Right at the starting point of the tour, at the train station in Reckendorf (line R26), you can make a first stop at the two local breweries to refresh yourself before the hike. Then you start your tour in the Haßberge Nature Park. Passing the edge of the forest with a viewing bench, you follow a wide forest path and hike through the shady forest up to the 360-meter-high Greinberg. The old rampart, which could have served as a boundary or barrier against the Slavic invasions from the fifth to the eleventh century, and is worth pausing for a while, is an exciting way to stop for breaks.Continue on, steeply downhill, towards Freudeneck. On the way you can enjoy wide views of the eastern Main slopes at Zapfendorf and the hills of the Franconian Switzerland, while you can look forward to the next stop at the brewery inn Fischer in Freudeneck. Whether you stop here or not - it gets damp (happy), if you follow the path along the Itz riverbank, which can be under water during high tide - then you better avoid the paved path parallel to it. After this lively intermezzo civilization will soon return and you can choose to stop at the brewery inn Endres, look for a quiet bank and enjoy the great view to the Staffelberg and Banz Monastery or to the finish line in Baunach, where cozy town around the market place has much to offer.The return trip will do the train for you. From Baunach station, for example, there are good connections in the direction of Nuremberg (R26 / R2).
