      A November day that lives up to the reputation of this month. But at least there was no rain ...As a cultural experience, we also passed the reconstructed Wächtersbach Castle, which has now been rebuilt as the town hall after the fire in 1939 and it was completely vacant since 1978.In the old town of Wächtersbach there are also numerous well-preserved half-timbered houses, such as the Hof-Apotheke, between the lower and upper gates. The Evangelical City Church, which also contained the school and the teacher's apartment in its eye-catching roof buildings, is particularly interesting. According to the inscription, this was used until 1904.

      This round leads to the northernmost part of the Spessart, where one or the other distant view already extends into the neighboring Rhön. Ramholz Castle is on the way. The eye-catching New Palace is a bizarre building from the 19th century, in which all sorts of historicizing architectural styles are mixed. The builder Hugo von Stumm emulated his brothers, who also had representative country manor castles built (Rauischholzhausen Castle / Neu-Potsdam near Marburg and Halberg Castle near Saarbrücken). More interesting from a cultural and historical point of view is the Renaissance castle (Old Castle), which has been degraded to a side wing, that of Hutten from around 1500. In the last third of the route, the path leads over the Stephanskuppe a very special nature reserve. At the end of September there were still some blooming gentians and silver thistles to be discovered here. Overall, this is a refuge for numerous protected plant species. The meadow slopes with their juniper bushes are also impressive on the flanks.

      3-Türme-Weg Nord, 3-Türme-Weg Süd, (formerly) 4-Türme-Weg ... there are some hiking trails that are dedicated to the tower buildings on the heights of Wetzlar. The waiting dates back to the medieval Landwehr of the then free imperial city. The Kalsmunt castle ruins are the remains of an imperial castle from the Staufer era, while the tower on the Stoppelberg was only what hikers appreciate: a lookout tower.The round is based on the Rother hiking guide "Taunus", 5th on. 2013, Tour 1. The biggest change on my part is the tour through the old town with the many half-timbered houses and the old Lahn bridge. Past the cathedral, which was never completed, since the Reformation a simultaneous church that the Protestant and Catholic congregations use together. And of course past some of the sites of the Imperial Chamber Court, which was located here from 1690 to 1806 and which made Wetzlar the "capital" of German law for over 100 years.

      This round runs partly along the Kreuzwertheim / Bavarian Main bank and offers beautiful views over to Wertheim in Baden.The path leads to the kingdom of heaven. The 234 m high mountain in the middle of a loop in the Main is known as the Kingdom of Heaven. In a figurative sense, the name is also used for the entire loop of the Main, which is surrounded by the river for over 7 km. At its narrowest point, the land mass is only about 400 m wide. Geologically, the narrow ridge still belongs to the Buntsandstein-Spessart, while the shell limestone regions of the Franconian plate begin on the other side of the Main.In the starting point and destination of Kreuzwertheim, the church square shows a picturesque ensemble. The "Irish" market cross, which is presumably medieval in origin, is striking, even if an inscription refers to the year 1647. It was destroyed by a truck crash in 2008, but it was restored by 2009. The framing of the square is determined by the Evangelical Church of the Holy Cross. The oldest structural elements go back to the 12th century, but the most distinctive are the baroque designs from the last major renovation in 1753. Nearby is the extensive palace complex of the Löwenstein-Wertheim-Freudenberg princely family, whose members are still there today still inhabit.

      Teufelskeller and basalt prismatic walls are definitely a must-see corner of the Rhön. There are vertical basalt columns in many places, but I have never seen them "jump towards" horizontally. Add to that the wild rock accumulations at the Teufelskeller and in between there are also some challenging, steep, slippery paths. Conveniently, with the Rother Kuppe, Thüringer Hütte and Schweinfurter Haus there are also numerous places to stop for a break.

      The almost 12km round is uncomplicated and also suitable for less experienced hikers. But it doesn't offer all that spectacular experiences either. What I found most exciting at the north-western exit of Bieber was the view over the Biebertal, the town of Bieber and the conical mountains Galgenberg and Burgberg towering behind it.

      After I had circled the picturesque little town in "wonderful" Eifel weather on the hills around the old town at the end of May 2021, only the big round followed in mid-September under summery conditions. This time mainly via the many viewpoints above the Rur Valley, but also along the very wild Rur Valley section at the Fischerhütte. After a long time I was once again on the cross in the Fens. A very recommendable day tour, but not for the inexperienced. In this combination, the tour is inspired by Mr. Pfade, by the way.

      This tour corresponds to the first stage (or the last depending on the direction of walking) of the Spessartweg 3. However, I have attached a tour through the old town of Bad Orber after the regular stage.The long-distance hiking trail Spessartweg 3 starts at the Bad Soden-Salmünster train station (railway line Frankfurt am Main - Hanau - Gelnhausen - Steinau - Fulda) and leads for approx. 60 km to the Heigenbrücken railway station (railway line Frankfurt am Main - Hanau - Aschaffenburg - Gemünden - Würzburg ).

      The tour largely corresponds to the Rother hiking guide for Central Saxony, 1st edition 2021, tour 11.The route along the Käbschützer Bach mostly leads along the route of the former narrow-gauge railway line between Meißen Triebischtal and Lommatzsch (Lummsch). The railway was in operation from 1909 and was shut down in sections between 1966 and 1972. The line was the connecting line between the Wilsdruffer and the Mügeln narrow-gauge railway network, which opened up large parts of the central Saxon area.Parts of the hilly landscape along the Käbschützer Bach belong to the protected area Trockenhang Südostl. von Lommatzsch - characterized by dry and semi-dry grasslands, rocky corridors, dry bushes and dry forests on loess or bedrock on the south-facing flanks of the stream.The second part from the bend in an easterly direction follows the Ketzerbach towards the Elbe. Here, too, part of the above runs. Nature reserve. In the affected villages, such as Wachtnitz, one repeatedly encounters extensive four-sided farms - evidence of the extremely productive loess soils in the Lommatzscher care. With the renaissance castle Schieritz and the baroque church of Zehren follow some architectural highlights. After the paths along the brooks, the tour ends at Zehren on the comparatively mighty Elbe river, over which there are also interesting views.

      A three-country tour that started and ended in Thuringia and crossed parts of Hesse, Bavaria and Hesse again. With the Black Moor and the Elbow with the viewing platform Noahs Segel, two of the very well-known and worth seeing destinations in the Rhön were on the way. But much more besides.
