After breakfast in the hotel, we went back home from Nuremberg with a little round in Franconian Switzerland. My tour started on the via ferrata on the Eibgrat near the A9 near Spies. A beautiful and challenging scramble on the long rock ridge with bizarre rock formations, but you should be sure of heights and free from giddiness. Then we went all over the place through beech forests, past climbing rocks and across fields around Spies back to the parking lot.

Small round from the hotel through the old town of Nuremberg before the club concert in the evening. The sun was already very low and a photo was no longer possible for many beautiful buildings. After dinner at the "Riverside" on the Pegnitz, we went back to the hotel, changed and walked to the concert.

Simply relax through the Thuringian region without major highlights and crowds. A beautiful Sunday afternoon tour through the forest, over meadows, fields and villages in the Blankenhain area with the best autumn weather. Kekek's hiking hut in Hochdorf is the last location on the tour that is open at the weekend, but reservations should be made for lunchtime.

After a long time back in Saxony in the nature reserve on the Schwarzen Pockau.
Lots of forest, water and rocks, later in the direction of Kühnhaide then meadows and marshland.
The "Grünen Graben" built for the earlier mining industry is similar to the Waalen in Austria and South Tyrol. We went back to that on the other side, of course with a break at Kurt the coffee man.
On kuehnhaide.de you can read the following:
"The valley of the" Schwarzen Pockau ", mostly just called the Schwarzwassertal, is a nature reserve which is one of the most beautiful of all German low mountain range valleys."
That’s pretty much everything. It was really beautiful, but freezing early in the morning.

Between Wettin and Halle I was on the move today in the porphyry landscapes NSG Gimritz and Brachwitz, on the "Brachwitz Alps" and the Saale.
It started with a tour of the Templar chapel in Müchi / Wettin.
Walking on the asphalt Saale cycle path and the road to Friedrichsschwerz was not so nice, after that it was mostly on field and hiking trails. On the heights one had a view of Halle and the surrounding area. Past the Brachwitz Alps with quarries, the northern Saale Cycle Path led me to the ferry to Brachwitz. On dirt roads we went through the NSG to Gimritz and on a former railway line in the direction of Müuellen. With a short swerve over a few rocks above the Lauchengrund, I came back to the parking lot.

This morning my hiking shoes from the day before were still in the hallway and the question arose ... put them away or put them on? I decided on the latter and so I went to the Fichtelgebirge for “altitude training” on my third tour.
After circumnavigating the Fichtelsee, we went quite steeply to the Seehaus high above the lake hill and on to the plateau summit with the summit cross and to the Prinzenfelsen with wonderful views. On the Hohe Matze, the foresight is almost zero and yet the climb to the summit cross is worthwhile for a break. Now the navigation of Komoot had said goodbye again and it went on with good luck. On the way back I explored the signposted Girgelhöhle, walk without a lamp and you can get up in the cave via ladders. Simply great, also an experience for children.
Then we went over different, partly overgrown and not signposted paths and past many rocks. Fortunately, Komoot continued to record my tour even without navigation, I could see my starting point and found my way back to the car.
Despite the difficulties, a nice tour ... everyone can do it🤣

Actually something should be done in the garden today, but the weather was too nice. So without further ado, put on your hiking boots to take a short walk in Neustadt and to the Bismarck Tower. Unfortunately it was closed. Back again a dangling over the old town, which has been spruced up nicely in recent years.

Small afternoon round on the Volksberg jungle path, a very nice and varied hike. From the "Kaiser Friedrich Turm" there was a small, steep detour to the Schleifberg to the Siebentälerblick to enjoy a great view. On the descent you come across the signposted jungle path again. The path leads out of the forest along the railway line to the NaturParkWelten and back through Leutenberg. Here the jungle path unfortunately loses its charm and can be shortened from the tracks.
