    This 13-kilometer hike is right at the beginning - but a great view is guaranteed. Start of the tour is at the train station in Happurg. From there you walk uphill for the next three kilometers, leaving most of the 420 meters behind you. Once up on the Houbirg you can enjoy the magnificent view over the Happurg reservoir and take a breather. Keep your eyes open for remnants of the ring wall.You have now completed the challenging part of the tour, the path gently leads you up and down. Hunger? After about five kilometers, you can strengthen yourself in the restaurant to Waldesruh. Not far away is worth a short detour to the chapel ruin at Arzlohe. A romantic place with an interesting history.Through beech forests and across meadows, you hike on and finally leisurely downhill to your destination Hartmannshof. There you will find several restaurants and cafes for a successful completion of the hiking day. If you still have enough time, it is worthwhile to visit the prehistoric museum Urzeitbahnhof. Here you can enjoy a journey through 12,000 years of human history. With your VGN ticket you get the admission cheaper (adults pay 2 euros).Arrival and departure: The tour starts and ends at the train station in the respective locations, so that you can arrive quite relaxed by train. From Nuremberg you drive for example 35 minutes with the S1 to Happurg.
