About CharlyW

Ich liebe die Natur und mein Motto lautete mal: "ein Tag ohne Sport ist kein Tag". Inzwischen machen meine Knochen nicht mehr so ganz mit. Eigentlich war ich Schwimmer und Triathlet. Im Schwimmbereich bin ich beim ATS Kulmbach noch immer als Nachwuchsttrainer aktiv. Ich mache auch "Kraulkurse" für Quereinsteiger, die sich mal als Triathlet versuchen wollen und nur Brustschwimmen können.
Ich fahre gerne Rad (Rennrad - MTB - Ebike), gehe wandern und Nordic-Walking. Meine Ausgangspunkte sind überwiegend in Kulmbach. Einen Fotoapparat hab ich fast immer dabei, denn fotografieren ist mein Hobby.

      We wanted to drive towards Thurnau differently. Through the Rotmaintal the path led us first to Wickenreuth, then Oberzettlitz, Windischenhaig, Ameisloch, Hutschdorf, Rottlersreuth and Hörlinreuth to Thurnau.
      In the Jarosch private forest we happened upon the Engelchen fountain, beautifully laid out with a memorial stone and an actual fountain and a small pond.
      Then we drove through Thurnau past the Schloßsee and on the old railway line to Limmersdorf. Then through the Limmersdorfer Forst again towards Rotmaintal. We followed the railway line to Neuenreuth am Main and crossed the Red Main there. Immediately after the bridge we turned left onto a hiking trail that led us back towards the A 70.
      Right next to the motorway there was an idyllic little lake with lots of water birds.
      The way led us to Langenstadt, from where we drove back to Kulmbach on well-known paths and roads through the Rotmaintal.
      A small rest area for pedestrians and cyclists has been built by the water management office in Hof on the flood basin directly under the Berlin bridge. There is also a notice board indicating that the Kulmbach flood has been exposed.
      A relaxed tour with the highlight Engelchen Brunnen.

      Our easy hike started at the outdoor pool car park in Stadtsteinach. First it went out of SAN past the swimming pool and along the first fish ponds and to the right about 100 m along the main road. But then the relaxation began right along the Steinach in the direction of Untersteinach. At Gut Hummendorf you then cross the small river. The estate was once really stately and, unfortunately, has completely fallen into disrepair. A private person has now bought it, the positive written sign shows great optimism (pictures 5 and 6).Cross the bike path and then turn right. A bit on the old road towards Untersteinach and then left up, but only take the second dirt road over the bridge of the new B 303 (the signs are heavily faded!). You also cross the old Untersteinach-Stadtsteinach railway line.Then you come to an inconspicuous bench under a lone tree almost at the top of the forest, here it is worthwhile to linger for a while (Fig. 10). Immediately afterwards follows the "Sleeping Beauty Path", as the locals call it. A great highlight of this short hike, especially in the heyday (Fig. 11).We follow the signs back to the landing site of the paragliders who take off from the Hainberg. From here (Fig. 15) you should no longer follow the current, still existing signs. Because otherwise you end up like us at the new bypass road (Fig. 16) and we could only cross it with great effort. It is better to continue on the paved road and cross the new bypass at the already completed bridge. Straight on down to the B 303 and immediately right into Badstrasse or, better still, the pedestrian / cycle path and back to the starting point.

      With two cameras in your backpack to the Rotmaintal. After a dog that ran free had followed me and I was able to take it down, a pack of deer suddenly stood in front of me. In total I saw 3 herds with a total of approx. 30 deer in the Rotmaintal today. Two pairs of storks breed in Melkendorf. With the couple next to the church, I was able to watch and take photos of the detachment as the nest was being expanded. It seems that both animals come off while they are breeding.

      Just enjoy the wonderful weather. Another wrong turn, but this time out of curiosity. Wanted to know where the forest path leads us: Back almost to Höferänger! What the heck, new attempt and via Gemlenz and Lehenthal towards Seibelsdorf and Marktrodach. In Vogtendorf to the left into the Fischbachtal. Up to Stoibra and Hörlachen and back down to Gössersdorf and back via Lösau.One of my favorite routes is the high path from Feldbuch over to the new wind turbines. You have a wonderful view of the foothills of the Franconian Forest including Radspitze. I love this area.

      Take a quick wrong turn and a new tour has opened up. We ended up in Hauenreuth, where you can buy everything from organic farmers in the Hoflädla. Unfortunately, the photos of the goats running free didn’t turn out, but it was so idyllic there that I’ll soon be driving by with my camera again. We then drove through forests to Ebersbach, up to Reisighof and via Spitzeichen and Tennach back towards Rehberg. Then turn left onto hiking trail 1 down into the Kessel and over the "Kroawäldla" and Melkendorf back to Kulmbach. Nice tour with a large proportion of forest trails and single trails.
      Then I made a detour via Metzdorf and the forest area above the clinic. In the middle of the forest were two young boys with their Ebikes, one of them had flat feet in the back. Unfortunately, couldn't help them because the tire size was wrong. They had absolutely nothing with them to fix the breakdown. But a cell phone to call mom!

      Something went wrong there. At first I took the wrong turn right after the start and had to go back. Then I restarted Komoot. On our small but nice round through the Steinach Valley, we endured three Kraupel showers. I think the pictures clearly prove that. At the finish (actually also the start) at the cutting mill at the blast furnace, we literally had to flee into the car, so it was storming. That's why I only thought about quitting Komoot after about 300 meters by car.
      All in all, a small but very varied round with a hot tea and Easter cake on the Neideck ruins as an absolute highlight.

      A contemplative hike on Easter Sunday. Wonderful quiet paths, mostly along the Great Koserbach. We were almost alone, a hike that is highly recommended if you love nature and tranquility. A short visit to the Wallfahtskirche completed the circular route perfectly.

      Just go for it. The first show in the sky after just 500 meters. A pair of storks has taken up residence at the Mönchshofbräu chimney. I saw another couple attempt to attack the owners.
      I left Untere Buchgasse at the Hans-Edelmann-Steg sharply right up towards Plassenburg. Halfway up I turned left, signposted towards Ebersbach. I then follow the Frankenstaigla "Ebersbacher Weg" which led me up behind the Plassenburg. Then through the beech forest to the east, over to the right the Rehberg. I followed the signs for the Staigla until I came out down in Ebersbach. Then we went on to Ködnitz on a beautiful singing trail. I followed the signs to Reisighof. I was last there when I was at school. Reisighof is a single homestead, wonderfully renovated and suitable for a farm holiday.
      We continued uphill to the animal shelter, there sharp left onto KU 44 "Trebgaster Weg". Get out of the forest with a wonderful view of the Fichtel Mountains. Then right up to the Spitzeichner tower. From Spitzeichen I had a great view down Main, I'm not sure, but it could have been the Kordigast. Then on a single trail almost to Tennach. The Rangabauer is worth a visit after Corona. We continued on the Frankenwaldstaigla "Rehbergweg" to the Rehbrünnlein. Then I dared the descent towards "Rehleite - Steinernes Gäßchen" for the first time. After a steep descent I came out again in the urban area above the district court. A slight flip over the red tower and I was home again. Schee woers!

      As announced, we followed Margit and Klausi's tour from Hollfeld today. Since we are also curious, there was one or the other dangling in it.
      A wonderful tour with optimal cycling weather. You gave us a day of vacation, it was just wonderful and the ice cream at the Icelanders "Northern Lights" in Hollfeld was the icing on the cake.
