Today's great weather used to make a MTB tour with a few impressions. Of course, history should not be missing :-).Mysterious water castle with Venetian charmThe Gottlieben water castle is located on the eastern edge of the Gottlieben community and stands directly on the banks of the Seerhein, a connecting arm of the Lake Constance basin. A wooden bridge leads to the other bank. During the Council period 1414 to 1418 there were 3 bridges over the Seerhein. Constance, Gottlieben and Stein am Rhein with course customs. The former moated castle was built in 1251 and the weir building was to impress the city lords of Constance. The west tower served as a prison. The reformer Johannes Hus was imprisoned in the dungeons during the council period 1414-1418. Despite free conduct by King Sigismund, Jan Hus was sentenced to death. From the middle of the 15th century, the castle was expanded into a palace-like castle. Today it is one of the most valuable cultural monuments in Switzerland.I wish everyone a nice Thursday and Happy ride on.

Very fun varied hike on great trails, through gorges to the Kargegg castle ruins and Freudental castle.At the moment, the Kargegg castle ruins are rather closed by fences, as the entire hiking trail to the Marienschlucht is closed, but you can walk the trail to the castle very well :-)The castle ruins of Kargegg near Langenrain are around 700 years old. The castle passed through many hands before it came into the possession of the von Bodmann family in 1502; you still own the castle today. However, the Bodman house was only able to enjoy its newly acquired castle for a short time: the peasant war broke out in 1525.Like many other small castles, Kargegg was stormed, looted, burned and left behind as a ruin by the farmers.Schloss Freudental is an old baroque palace and today a hotel.I wish everyone a great Wednesday evening and Happy ride on.

Windy and fresh MTB tour along the Thur to the private castle. First you cross the military training area in Frauenfeld and then it goes along the Thur. The way back is above the vineyards.Wyden Castle
Very idyllic location, in the middle of nature. The listed complex, the oldest parts of which date back to the Middle Ages, is privately owned.Castle Wyden was rebuilt in 1946 after it had largely burned down. The facility had been badly damaged two years earlier when a stray US bomber crashed. On July 19, 1944, the pilotless American plane - it came from an operation over Munich - crashed directly into the castle tower. The plane was probably shot over Friedrichshafen. The team of seven had previously saved themselves from the burning plane by parachute jump in Lake Constance. Miraculously, no one was injured in the crash.I wish everyone a super nice Sunday evening and Happy ride on.

Very varied tour on sometimes quite narrow steep paths, so I recommend good shoes.Gasthof Haldenhof is currently on vacation and will open again on March 28th, 2020The Hödinger Tobel is closed due to a landslide, it is a shame you can only partially get into the gorge.The seven Churfirsten are very cool and a geological peculiarity in the middle of the nature reserve of the Sipplinger cliff landscape. The Seven Churfirsten are pillar-like, five to seven meter high sandstone cliffs, which were formed in the post-ice age by the erosion of rain and wind.I wish everyone a nice Saturday evening and Happy ride on.
