The round tour starts in Lauf an der Pegnitz. You first drive through the Sebalder Reichswald towards Oedenberg. The place is on the Liashöhe, from where you can enjoy a wonderful view of the area of the Lorenzer and Sebalder Reichswaldes. In Oedenberg Castle, which was first mentioned in 1319 and is now an inviting inn, you can take a break for the first time. The cabbage sausage from the in-house butcher's shop is particularly recommended here.From here you continue via Tauchersreuth to Beerbach. A little away from the village is one of the most beautiful Gothic hall churches in Middle Franconia. The route takes you over wide fields, through beautiful forests and past picturesque meadows to Neunhof, where you can marvel at three very attractive castles.It then continues via Bullach, Laipersdorf and Großbellhofen to Schnaittach. The mighty Rothenberg Fortress towers high above this village, which was mentioned in a document as early as 1011, and is well worth a visit. Schnaittach also has a long Jewish history. In the former synagogue there is also a branch of the Jewish Museum Franconia and a small local history museum. In the three Jewish cemeteries you will find Hebrew writings on the gravestones. A walk up to the Kalvarienberg with the baroque church is also worthwhile.Then you cycle on to Dehnberg: a place that is known today for the "Dehnberger Hoftheater", which is housed in a former agricultural building. It is not far from here to the starting point of the tour in Lauf an der Pegnitz.
