We walk from the parking lot at the fire brigade in Kornbach, first along the Nordic walking route, past some rock cellars over open terrain, until after about one kilometer we go into the herbaceous forest. We then follow this path past the hill meadow high reservoir and the trial training area to the Hohe Reuth quarry near Gottmannsberg.The quarry is really worth seeing and currently hiking on the signposted paths is still allowed - as long as the mining authority has not yet issued a permit for the gränite to be mined.From there, the path then leads us through a beautiful, autumnal beech forest back towards Kornbach, where we come across the so-called Pestilence Garden with its sacrificial stone about a kilometer before the village. Many victims of the plague were buried here during the Thirty Years' War. Remains of the cemetery wall can still be guessed at and the sacrificial or druid stone is said to be able to predict great wars. If the depression in the stone is dry, a new great war will break out.Before the two world wars, the bowl is said to have been empty for the last time, although it has no natural intake ...

We start our hike where the Schlegelmühle - which was operated with the water of the Lehstenbach - used to be. In the meantime, the collapsed building including the barns has been completely torn down. We follow the road towards Baiergrün and after a short time turn left onto a dirt road, pass the hop mill and come to Kollerhammer.There we continue parallel to the stream until we meet the European long-distance hiking trail, which we follow through the forest until we turn left towards Taubaldsmühle. From there it goes back to the starting point on the other side of the Lehstenbach via Kleinschwarzenbach.

Nice round from the parking lot Görauer Anger. The route is very varied and the view on the impressive Görauer Anger was excellent. You need to be sure-footed around Niesten Castle, as it is a bit steep up and downhill on stony ground.Stopping off is not so easy in Corona times, but at the Juraturm inn in Wunkendorf we found what we were looking for with good food at fair prices.

Start and finish are at the hiking car park at the Sparneck sports field. The tour takes you past a number of springs and numerous quarries, a few of which offer the opportunity for a short bath. Although the route has some gradients, it is very varied and the forest trails that are unfortunately typical for the Fichtelgebirge are also limited.

Very nice round from Fichtelberg. We start at the parking lot behind the town hall, pass the Hurtig rock and first follow the way of the cross, which winds in serpentines on the Calvary, which is actually in the middle of the town. Here is one of the few large beech deposits in the Fichtel Mountains with an almost park-like character.It continues through a new building, past the Bleaml-Alm and then on the Köhler-, Hirten- and Steinhauerweg as well as the Bergwerksweg. We encounter several small lakes that come from abandoned quarries, the most impressive is the Proterobas quarry with its spoil tips. In its natural form, this stone looks somewhat like blue granite and was melted into black glass in button glass huts from the 17th century, which was then processed into buttons and glass beads.On the way back we take a short break at the beautiful salt pond, the origin of which is unknown, and then follow the Bocksgraben - an artificial ditch created in the 17th century that redirects water from the warm Steinach to the Fichtelnaab, which was required for the operation of hammer mills - back to Fichtelberg. Attentive observers will discover all sorts of dwarfs and animals on the moat in this section before heading down the Calvary again.

The Steigla is currently (July 2020) actually closed due to construction work on the B 173, the starting point Zeyern gets a bypass. On days when work on the construction site is stopped, there is a possibility to avoid the construction site, there is a short description at the starting point of the hike.The subject of this riser glass is the history of Zeyern, which is provided in the form of information boards on the monuments along the way. You start in Zeyern in the Rodach Valley, then you first go along the river, parallel to the busy federal road 173. After you have crossed this (somehow) it goes steadily up to the individual finch flight - and sometimes very steep uphill. Once you have reached the top, you go along the ridge, where there are wide views of the surrounding area, south to Staffelberg, east to Döbraberg and the Fichtelgebirge.You should definitely take the side trip to the lookout point at Födelberg with you, there is a small rest area with a wonderful view over the Markgrafenhöhe to the Schneeberg in the Fichtelgebirge. On the way back, it goes downhill with a view of the Franconian line until you have returned to the valley. After crossing the Rodach over an old weir, there is once again a beautiful view of the baffle of the Altrodach in white shell limestone. Good fitness and sure-footedness are definitely required on this Steigla.

Our third and last stage on the leads us back to Munich, where we leave the Isar cycle path at the Großhesseloher bridge and then continue to Poing.The route is particularly remarkable behind Grünwald, which leads through a beautiful beech forest on a gravel path close to the Isar. Due to the proximity to the city, there is a lot going on here - especially on weekends.
