.. after days of intensive and intensive desk work today in the glorious weather a little break granted and made a round from Königsbronn to Itzelberger See and back. On the lake you have a really great leisure and adventure center realized with mini golf, pedal boats and paddle boats, etc. Especially is to be highlighted that the paths for the walkers "sanded" and rolled again.
The Brenz and also the lake currently have a very good water quality and so the fattest chunks of fish can frolic in it. Detailed information about the fish species used can be found in the gallery.

Today once again made the traditional Friday hike with the walking friends of the local group Zang. The goal today was a circular walk in the upper Wental (Felsenmeer). The tour started at the parking lot at the Wental-Hotel and then went over the school path to the Kerbenhauweg and then on the adjacent Haidweg in the direction of Irmannsweiler. Shortly before Irmannsweiler we went downhill again to the big "Doline" and then towards the Felsenmeer, past the well-known "Hexenloch" and back to the starting point. Afterwards a cozy get-together in the Wental Gasthaus.
At the Brenzquelle / Brenzspringung one was already often enough .. but at the mouth ???? There are just 52 km between the source and the mouth.
But today we explored where the Brenz flows into the Danube. This is the case with Faimingen / Danube shortly after the Danube reservoir.
The start was at the factory parking lot of the company Gartner at the Gartner lakes in Gundelfingen. From there it went on a gravel road to the Donaustausee. At this we walked along and could only marvel at the great fauna on the lake. There were huge waterbird colonies on the driftwood islands and on the "shoals" of the reservoir. On the shore, there are also many pond roses islands that bloom and was on the dam, or is a huge herb garden. Since we covered ourselves directly with wild marjoram (oregano). We then went to the power plant, around the substation and then on a Gras- / Schottterweg towards Brenzmündung. Since just a few fishing friends were on the move because there was nothing to catch in the dark broth of the Danube. Since there is no crossing at the mouth of the Brenz we had to go back to the power station on the same way and turn off to a signposted path from the Schwäb. Albverein. After a few hundred meters this (but for unexplained reasons) was closed and therefore had to go up again on the dam for a while to walk on this. A little further on, we could continue down the dam and continue on a paved road in the direction of "Echenbrunn". We then marched, partly directly along the Brenz, back towards Gundelfingen to the Gartner lakes, our starting point.
The plan was for a short hike from Aauendorf on the "Hägenmarkweg" (rose hips) to "Brunnbühlkapelle", from there then climb to the Galgenberg and then on the "Sickenbühl", Barmerberg back towards Auendorf.Draus, however, was a really beautiful herbs Above all on the lower part, the chicory, the yellow flowering St. John's wort, wild marjoram (oregano) and wild peppermint grew and flourished, and countless hawthorn hedges, which had already withered, lined the way However, these are not yet matured.The juniper bushes have many fruits that slowly color.
The trail started at the Wanderparkplatz at the Hotel Talblick on Ditzenbacherstrasse. The path led around the hotel and around the stables and over a small wooden bridge. First you go on an asphalt Wegweg the transition into the forest on a gravel road changes. This way you go until you finally arrive at the Brunnbühlkapelle. There you can visit the (but closed chapel and the local Stations of the Cross.) From the chapel it gets a bit sporty and you have to climb up the Galgenberg on a steeply serpentine path, but then you will arrive at the top with a wonderful view from the "Brunnbühlfelsen" on the castle ruins "Hiltenburg" and Ditzenbach rewarded.
The path now leads on a narrow path past the "limestone rock". From the Barmerberg we continue on a gravel road. After the Barmerberg, the descent back to Auendorf takes place.
Note: From the Brunnbühlkapelle on the ascent, or at the top of the way ahead you should have a good surefootedness !!
The coming from Auendorf "Hägenmark" (Rosehip Mark) is supposed to be the best that one finds in the area. Whether that's true will soon turn out to be who we taste the rosehip tag bought in a small farm shop.
Today spared the legs and made a trip by train to Überlingen. this trip was to a certain extent also an "anniversary tour". After we - of course after a regular delay by train - arrived in Überlingen first strengthened and then set off to a ground-sea (h) round trip from Überlingen to Mainau, then towards the eastern shore at Unteruhldingen (stilt houses), Seefelden, Nussdorf passed back to Überlingen. Unfortunately, the views were a bit clouded. This did not come from the Hefeweizen that had been enjoyed for lunch, but the sky had grown increasingly with rain and storm clouds and it was raining from time to time. But in spite of everything still brought some good Ppanoramaufnahmen. Just in time for the return to Überlingen, the sun had also begun to blink from the sky. After a good coffee then a little stroll through town with a visit to the St. Nikolai Minster made.
Of course, a special highligth is also the "Bodenseereiter", a fountain designed by the Bodman sculptor at the central square of the lakeside promenade.
Unfortunately, then the return trip in the late afternoon with train cancellations and delays was peppered. Apparently, this is slowly becoming a good image of the railway, or the transport companies. 😁😒
Today a tour in the Ellwanger Lakeland made. Start of the tour was in Ellwanger district Eggenrot (Church St. Patrizius) in the direction Glassagweiher (a reservoir and anglers lake). Since we had to climb then on the dam and went on this in the direction of "Lindenhäusle" and the small town Griesweiler. Then it went through the Gewann "Finsterholz", Dieselhof to the place Hohenberg. Once there we had to take a bigger climb to the "Jakobuskapelle" (but worth it in any case). Up from Kapellenberg you have a wonderful view of the "Ellwangerland and the Ellwanger mountains". After visiting the chapel, we went on an asphalt road, which is equipped with a wonderful "Way of the Cross" down to the village. On the Orrotstrasse we went up to L1060. Then we turned left and walked a bit along this (about 350 m) along (we were lucky to go on a freshly mown lawn). Then the road must be crossed and then comes on a gravel road (red cross on a white background). Follow this path straight to the "Orrot Lakes". On this way you also pass a beautiful hut that belongs to the forest. This place is ideal for a snack break and is also equipped with benches and tables. Arrived at the Orrot lakes you get a great impression of this water. At the Orrot lakes there are two possibilities:
The first is the following: you go over the dam on the other side and then wanders around the lake.
Another option is to stay on the side you arrive at and walk along the lake (we opted for this option). On this shore there is also a boat rental with canoes to paddle around the lake. At the end of the Orrot lakes we walk through the forest again to the B 290. Unfortunately, it is unavoidable that you have to walk along the B290 for about 300 meters. But no problem, because there is a well-developed "banquet" on the main road on which you can go. After about 300 m, we turn right again into the forest and walked in the direction of "Scheuenmühle". From here you are back on open field and has a good overview of the terrain. From the Scheuenmühle we then hiked on to the "Scheuenhof" (Pferdegestüt). From the Scheuehof you also have a beautiful view of the pilgrimage church "Schönenberg" high above Ellwangen. After a short rest, ann went across the "Borsthof" to our final destination in Eggenrot.
Paths: You walk a lot on gravel paths, grass paths and natural trails. In Hohenberg, from the Scheuenhof to the end point, the path is asphalted. The crossings of the small streams and streams are equipped with small wooden bridges.
The creeks and streams run through the Ellwanger Lake District like so-called "spider veins".
In recent years, the Karlsruhe Regional Council has set up numerous flood polders and water scoops to divert the flood of the Rhine into the Altrhein areas. This comes naturally to the residents on the Lower Rhine to good ones thereby the high water is cushioned. The Rhine tribes are very heavily used and frequented by cyclists. actually forbidden, but tolerated to a certain extent. Therefore, we have also allowed us on the Rhine dam, or in the Altrheinzonen to make a little hike. on the (hiking) because, the very well developed even you have "escape route signs attached, the extreme case should occur and you will be surprised by a sudden flood, this could happen, since the water control points automatically work Altrheinzonen do not move without navigation, because you have specially set up a so-called flood channel and there are hardly any transition opportunities to cross it.At the Altrheinarmen were also a few anglers on the way but had no great fishing luck (I talked briefly with them) There was very little traffic on the Rhine (just 2 full gravel ships down the Rhine, or an empty upriver on the Rhine), but the ferry had to do a lot of work every minute between Drusenheim (France) and Greffern (Germany) and cars, Motorcycles, cyclists and pedestrians, because this ferry is a joint project of France and Deuts country is the use of this ferry is free.
In spite of almost unbearable heat, a stroll through the rose new garden on the Beutig made above Baden-Baden. Unfortunately, the hot and dry weather did not pass without a trace even on the roses. Every year, all rose novelties and rose new breeds are presented and awarded in the rose garden. The rose garden has a total area of 3000 m² and also has a large open space for concerts and other events. The best season is early June when it's still a bit cooler. Since the roses can also develop their full fragrance.
During my stay in my hometown once again made a tour and city stroll to see if everything is still the same. At the moment, however, much is being renovated and redesigned. In the picture gallery are also some shots and insights into the foyer of the Kurhaus and Casino. Here you can win a lot with luck ... but also lose 😒. Currently Baden-Baden is for the soon to be "Big Week" (horse race). spruced up.
The architectural style of the old houses is unmistakably the proximity to neighboring France.
Have fun with the tour!
