August 13, 2019
After the night in the Naturfreundehaus Finsterbrunnertal, the second stage begins with a wonderful rest at the edge of the forest. You continue hiking along the Moosalbe, through dense green and accompanied by the splashing of the water. Here, nature may still be as it really is.At the Wilensteiner mill you cross the stream and climb up to Wilenstein Castle. Parts of the formerly powerful complex from the 12th century are still well preserved and can be visited. Since the 1960s, there is even a country school home in the restored upper castle.Over bridges and stream crossings it goes on into the nature reserve Karlstal. This section of the Moosalbe is considered particularly idyllic and original. Large ferns and juicy mosses grow along the way. You can also discover massive rock formations and smaller caves in the gorge.At Oberhammer is a small lake, where the small roadhouse on the Way of St. James invites you to take a break. The element of water accompanies you further and you reach the Plickersweiher. Here you leave the valley of the Moosalbe and penetrate deeper into the forest. You cross the quiet Schauertal and follow the forest path uphill.The cozy Naturfreundehaus Heltersberg is your destination today. The house stands on a meadow in the middle of the forest and is known for its delicious food. On the rustic benches on the terrace you can relax and look forward to the next stage.
