  • Odenwald

    From Frankenstein Castle on the fifth day, you can comfortably hike uphill and downhill to the Fischbachtal. The route is characterized by the gently rolling landscape of the Odenwald. At the foot of the Langenberg, cross the rippling Beerbach and follow the path further east. In alternation you walk over promising hills and through wooded valleys. In between lies a carpet of colorful fields and small villages.After about half of today's route, you can make a detour to the castle of the same name in Ernsthofen. Shortly thereafter you will pass the Heroes' Grove and the Julius Scriba Hut, which is a nice place for a break. Then the Alemannenweg runs alternately at the edge of the forest and over open field.
    North of Klein-Bieberau you walk over the Johannisbach and then arrive at the idyllic Hottenbacher Hof. In the Vesperstube you can fortify yourself with delicacies produced on the farm, such as smoked trout or delicious cheese.
    After a short break you walk on a quiet forest path to the castle Lichtenberg: The different areas of the plant worth a visit. The oldest parts of the castle were built around 1200 and from the castle wall you can enjoy a fantastic view. The place Niedernhausen, at the foot of the Schlossberg, is your destination today. There you can visit the beautiful church "St. John the Baptist "visit.
