After work we went to Waldkirch today to take a tour over the Kandel. The ascent and the section shortly after the Kandelspitze had some paths that were still completely unknown to me and these were especially worthwhile today heuteThe hike began at the "Seerosenteich" and from there led continuously uphill to the Kandelspitze. Before that, however, I passed the Thomashütte and this view of the Glotter and Elz valleys, the Rhine plain and the Kaiserstuhl, as well as the highest mountains in the Black Forest and the Vosges, was really fantastic (you might notice that from the high one Number of pictures from there 😅).After enjoying the view from the Kandelspitze, it went downhill on a rocky path, which also led me past the Kandelfelsen, which is well worth seeing. We continued over the Gaisfelsenhütte and the Altersbach waterfall back to the start.

On many of my tours in the Black Forest, the Swabian Alb was visible and today I went there for the first time. The round began at Gosheim and led over the viewpoints on the Kehlen and on the Hummelsberg to the Klippeneck. There you would normally have a view as far as the Alps, but the visibility was not particularly good today. But it was very exciting how many well-known Black Forest mountains are visible from here.We continued to the Trinity Mountain with its pilgrimage church. On the hiking trail "Bergsteige" it went down and then below the way there, back towards Gosheim.The first section to the Dreifaltigkeitsberg consisted almost exclusively of narrow forest paths and trails. The way back consisted mainly of wider forest roads.All in all a recommendable tour🙂

Between the end of work and the club meeting, a hike still had to be inserted today. The beginning was near the Schiltach main station and led, almost directly, to the Elmlisberg. From there it went on to the Wolfacher district of St. Roman with its pilgrimage church. Always nice there.From here it went on over the Kohlplatz to the Salt Lick. Especially in the last part of this section there were some very nice forest trails.From the salt lick, it went past the Teisenkopf tower and via Bonathsküche and Kuhbachtal back to Schiltach.

I recently read a report about Stuttgart and this is where the idea came to me to hike around the Stuttgart basin and today the idea was put into practice. Arrival was by train and therefore the start was at the main train station. From there it went through the Europaviertel, directly on the Killesberg and its observation tower. This offers a very nice view of Stuttgart and the surrounding area. We continued through the valley of the Feuerbach, towards Bottnang and from there on to the Birkenkopf. This mountain is the highest point in the city and offers a fantastic view of the city. In addition, it is something special, as there is a lot of rubble from the war-torn Stuttgart on it. At that time the mountain was increased by 40m with rubble. From here it went down the Hasensteige and over the Karlshöhe to the south of Stuttgart. From here the ascent to the television tower was tackled. This led over many of the Stäffele (stairs) for which Stuttgart is known.

Today, after a long period of abstinence, it finally worked out to go hiking in the Vosges. To celebrate the day, the two highest mountains in the Vosges, the Storkenkopf (1366m) and the Grand Ballon (1424m), were chosen as destinations.The tour began in the village of Rimbach-près-Guebwiller and started directly with an ascent to Ebeneck. From here you already have the first fantastic view of the Rhine Graben and the Black Forest and when you turn around you can already see the actual destination of the tour, the Grand Ballon. We continued over the Judenhut, to the top of the Grand Ballon pass. However, the mountain itself was initially left on the left and the path led below the summit to the Col du Haag. From here it went to the second highest peak in the Vosges, the Storkenkopf.
After climbing it, there was a fantastic view of the northern Vosges.Then we went to the Grand Ballon with its eye-catching radar cupola on top. The panorama from there was terrific, even if the distant view was not perfect.

Since I've been rather lazy the previous week, I had to do a larger group to finish work today and so I went to Freudenstadt to take a trip to the Murg Valley from there. It started at a small parking lot at the end of the village in the direction of Bad Wildbad. From there, the path initially led over wide forest paths in the direction of Klosterreichenbach. It was not until the descent into the Murg Valley that there were some fantastic views.In Klosterreichenbach we passed the monastery which is well worth seeing. Here the valley side changed and it went towards Baiersbronn. Before the path led through the village, however, a detour was made to the Rinkenkopf and there the Rinkenturm was climbed. The climb is definitely worth it, as you have a beautiful view from there. After the descent, it went through the village and from there uphill again to the Stöckerkopf to the Glasmännlehütte. Unfortunately, this is currently not hosted, but the view is worth seeing.

I took over this tour to a large extent from the Komootler Petra (thanks for the inspiration!) And could be described as the best-of of the themed and premium trails around the Enlzach district of Yach. You can get there via the Brotweg, the Hirtenweg, the Yacher Höhenweg and the Zweälersteig.The beginning was at a small parking lot for hikers, where the bread path also starts. From there on it went uphill, over the Schönecklebühl to the Tafelbühl. From the two launch sites for paragliders there, you have a fantastic view. We went straight to the next high point, the Braunhörnle. Here, too, you could enjoy a fantastic view over Elzach and towards the Rheingraben and Vosges. Then it went straight to the Rohardsberg and the rustic Gasthaus Schwedenschanze "Schänzle". There you can reward yourself for the ascent on weekends. The descent took place over the Siebenfelsen rock formation and led back to the start via beautiful forest paths.

Since I haven't been to Hornberg for a long time, this was quickly defined as a goal. In addition, I wanted to try new ways again and so, during the lunch break, I quickly clicked together a tour, which worked terrifyingly well🙃The beginning was in Hornberg at the train station and the route first led through the city and from there to the Storenwald, where the open-air stage is located, where the Hornberg shooting is regularly performed. We continued on the panorama path to Niederwasser. There at the cemetery I would recommend following the signs in the direction of Karlstein and not my recording, then you save yourself a cross-country passage.
Now follows a crisp ascent to the Martinsecke (837m). From there, the Offenbach valley was circled and the path led back to Hornberg. The descent back into the city takes place via Uhufelsen and the Hornberger Schloßberg.

Today's after-work tour led me from Wolfacher Herlinsbachweg, over the Hofeckle, to the Spitzfelsen. The heavy rain this afternoon and the subsequent sunshine resulted in fantastic pictures, with steaming forests and great light. In general, the view from the Spitzfelsen to Hausach and Wolfach is always worth an ascent. We continued over the White Cross in the direction of Hausach-Einbach. Here it went over the Osterberg and then on a path above the Hegerfeld towards Frohnau. There were some beautiful views of Hausach here. The way back to Wolfach led over the bike path.

This time a hiking group went from Titisee to the Hochfirst and back again. Since I was traveling in a group, there are only a few pictures this time.It is worth mentioning in this recording, however, that the hiking signs at the Sandbank campsite were removed and instead one should go to Titisee directly under the railway and the main road.
The view from Hochfirst over the lake and the surrounding Black Forest is fantastic and the climb is definitely worth it.
