    The third leg of the Alemannenweg leads you from the Kuralpe up to the Felsberg. Since 1901, there is the remarkable Ohly Tower, from which your gaze wanders over the beautiful mixed forest to Frankfurt. On the descent from the 515-meter-high Felsberg you pass the impressive sea of rocks: Huge, massive granite blocks lie here along the way and form a unique scenery.
     
    The Alemannenweg runs through the nature reserve to the natural monument Teufelsstein. Under your feet you can feel the soft forest floor and in the crowns of the trees sit small birds. After a good seven kilometers, you will pass the Hermitage: a quaint, bark-clad cottage. It once served the nobility as a resting place for walks and represents the entrance to the State Park Fürstenlager.
     
    Through the lovely park, it goes downhill to Auerbach. There you will find the striking castle Auerbach with its round towers. The ruin has many dreamy corners and beautiful views to offer. You look far over the Odenwald and the Rhine plain.
    From the castle, the trail winds its way up the wooded hills and zig-zags to Melibokus. A variety of hiking trails and mountain bike trails meet here. The Melibokus is the highest mountain of the Hessian mountain road and represents another first-class vantage point.On serpentines you walk the last few kilometers through the forest down to Zwingenberg. In the historic town with its pretty half-timbered houses you will find a good selection of accommodation.
