That was a really nice winter hike today. We also met almost no people - except at the summit of Melibokus - which in these times can be quite relevant for the decision whether to go on such a tour or not. There were also only 3 other groups of hikers / cyclists on the summit. However, things will probably look different on weekends.

This was a nice tour in corona times. But be careful! On the Neunkircher Höhe it was already very crowded on Sundays - so full that the police blocked the access roads and there were fights in the parking lot in Neunkirchen (see message in the Darmstädter Echo from January 4th, 2021). In this respect, I strongly recommend that you only go on this tour as a snow tour during the week as long as there are Corona restrictions. If you want to meet less than the 10 or so hiking groups that we met, you have to avoid the path between the Kaiserturm and Neunkirchen. The start in Brandau is very lonely and we didn't meet any other day trippers in the parking lot.
