    Mostly shady round on mostly beautiful paths with plenty of seating and refreshments. Some distant views.
    Komoot classification "difficult" exaggerated, only for the two climbs to Auerbacher Castle and Melibokus you should bring some condition.
    Several entry-level variants possible. So the tour can easily be shortened by 2.5 km and 90 vertical meters.
    From the starting point on the grounds of the Auerbach mountain church with the old cemetery. It opens up the first beautiful view. Then the paved road down into the village, over the Bachgasse and gently rising past some villas. In front of the villas you can look at cars with luck, which you will buy once when you grow up.After a memorial site with the first seats, the first climb begins. The soon unpaved Alemannenweg (red A on a white background) following, at the old waterworks with refuge over to Dr. Ing. Wilhelm Hahn hut.
    Here (do not be irritated by Komoot) turn right onto the unmarked path that leads back to the Alemannenweg on a paved section.
    On natural path to the Auerbacher castle, after the visit once around and not under the bridge, but the stairs left before up to the parking lot.
    After the Auerbacher castle, the first ascent is made. Pay attention here to the sign A, it leads right parallel to the road on a narrow path to another parking lot. Here you could follow straight on the A, save 300 meters and 20 meters in altitude, but the way to the right is a little nicer.If the path meets the Alemannenweg again, you could take a break about 50 meters to the left at the Paul Forster hut, but it is not absolutely necessary.
    After the parking lot "Not-Gottes" along the forest highway, keep an eye on the map. Komoot does not specify the point to leave the wide runway on an unmarked route in time.
    The path soon becomes narrower, leading a little further through the forest until you come to a forest edge. The comfortable path leads along an idyllic valley with meadows and pastures until you meet the graveled Nibelungensteig.Here you come left after a few meters on two benches with a view over, which can be used for a rest before the steepest climb.
    After the benches one touches the Alemannenweg, which from here is also very beautiful, but more frequented. It goes now unmarked steeply on stony path uphill until it meets the currently uninviting Forstmeister Kurz hut again on the Alemannenweg.
    From the hut it is not far, but still steep to the Melibokus, from whose viewing terrace you can enjoy the panoramic view.
    From now on it goes downhill on some narrow paths and paths, following the signpost 6, which will leave after a while straight to save a piece of forest highway.
    Near the "Not God" car park on the right on unpaved path to the mostly closed chapel with outdoor seating.
    Continue downhill and after a short stretch of road turn right and immediately left onto a narrow path parallel to the road. Pay attention to the map, Komoot is no acoustic aid here.
    After the parking lot "Höllberg", which offers itself as an entry-level variant, a very short stretch of road to a place where several ways pay. Keep left here, look at the display - here too, there's a hiccup with the speech output, once more upwards. On this piece is the only resting place of the round with a table.
    The path becomes the path, then becomes wider and you reach the Gasthof Waldschlösschen again on the way. At the memorial back to the village and back to the mountain church Auerbach.
