      An exciting story combined with a wonderful natural world - this is what awaits you on the Königin-Luise-Weg. In June 1805 the Prussian royal couple Friedrich Wilhelm III. and Luise into the Fichtelgebirge. Your visit should significantly influence the region. This is how this ten and a half kilometer long path was created, which leads you to the most important stages of the royal visit.
      It starts in the beautiful old town of Wunsiedel, which alone is worth seeing with its proud 30 fountains. You march past the ice pond and up to the open air stage of the Luisenburg Festival. It is considered Europe's most beautiful and largest natural stage - a look inside will tell you why. Through Luisenburgallee and past an obelisk, which was built in memory of the king's visit, you will soon reach the climax of the hike: the Margravial Palace of Alexandersbad. You finally hike back to your starting point via the Katharinenberg, which captivates visitors with a bird of prey park and the impressive church ruins.
      Tip: a detour to the walk-through rock labyrinth or to the ALEXBAD, where you can treat yourself to a few soothing swim strokes and a visit to the sauna, is guaranteed to pay off during and after this hike.

      Marterl - these are shrines that are sometimes set up for a joyful and sometimes for a less joyful occasion. Many of them are based on myths and legends - but the original form is said to go back to the torture of Jesus on the cross. The Marterlweg is dedicated to these small works of art. Over a length of a good eight kilometers, it takes you across the beautiful region around Mehlmeisel.The circular route starts at Bayreuther Haus, from where you walk along the right edge of a ski slope. You will soon reach the first marterl, the Geißbach-Marterl, via the Geißbachsteig. The climb takes you uphill, then turns into a paved forest path and soon you will reach number two: the Rusel-Marterl. Walking along a forest path and through beautiful nature, you also take the wolf column with you on the way and walk a little later past the cobbler marten. A torture is still pending. And you will find that just before your destination - between the forest museum and the game reserve.Now you are at your starting point and in front of the Bayreuth House. Here you have earned yourself a nice refreshment, maybe even a delicacy from the home kitchen.

      One banker, two bankers ... On this circular route you will find many of the wooden seating options. A handful of Längenauer, the so-called "Aufg’legte", took on the fate of hikers in their region and decided to provide them with several stable rest areas. This is how the Bankerlweg was created.
      The six-kilometer tour starts in the center of Längenau. From there, you first hike towards Buchwald, then Höllragen, Schüsselstein and Mooslohe - always around the Wartberg. Following path number 7 and the landmark of Längenauer “Aufg’legten” - a straw man named Hansl - you will sooner or later pass a wildlife park and shortly afterwards you will reach your starting point again.
      The path is not difficult to walk, you only have to master a small slope. Thanks to its idyllic ponds and landscapes, the view of the Fichtel Mountains and the typical restaurants, the trip to Längenau will be remembered for a long time.

      This relaxed, pram-friendly and wonderfully natural circular route takes you to the Trinity Church in Kappl. For this you start in the historic center of Waldsassen. In addition to its monastery basilica, the monastery library, the nature experience garden of the Abbey of Waldsassen and the Stiftland Museum, the monastery city also has a beautiful old town that you should definitely take a closer look at. Either at the beginning or end of your tour.When you are ready, you will start to walk towards Kappl - always following the main path with number 5. First turn right on Münchenreuther Straße and Schützenstraße to the forest car park at the ASV sports area and from there on a beautiful pedestrian path to the Dreifaltigkeitskirche. After about three and a half kilometers you have already reached this. A look inside pays off and next to it the Kapplwirt is already waiting to serve you if necessary.Then the way back is already on the way: first in the direction of Dietzenberg, then through Munich-Reuth and further on dreamy corridors into the forest. Finally, it goes back to Waldsassen on the baroque rosary station path.

      From the charming center of Weißenstadt, the Zinnweg takes you through the cultural history of tin and back. The almost seven and a half kilometer long circular route is a mining history themed trail of GEOPARK Bavaria-Bohemia. Why? You will find out more about this in the two-hour hike.Let's go to the Kurpark in Weißenstadt. You can visit the beautiful lake in peace after your tour, treat yourself to a cooling off or simply enjoy the panorama. First of all, it means: hiking. You march along the Eger to the fairground, cross the river and soon reach the first highlight through the Steinau, the so-called school forest, where you can enjoy a wonderful view of Weißenstadt. It continues through wonderful nature to the black pond, which once served as a water reservoir for pewter washing. Here you can take a break before starting the remaining kilometers of your hike.At the tin ore investigation company Werra, where information boards tell more about the history of the mine, you start your way back to Weißenstadt. Unless, of course, you still have enough energy to make a detour to the Rudolfstein. Then you have to calculate about two and a half kilometers more - but they pay off. Otherwise, a relatively flat path leads you back to your starting point, the Kurpark Weißenstadt.

      The almost eleven kilometer long Thiesenring leads you to the best places around Bad Berneck. There are some viewpoints, a castle ruin and a lot of wonderful nature. It is not for nothing that it is considered one of the most beautiful hiking trails in northern Bavaria. But simply convince yourself.It starts at the parking lot at Anger in Bad Berneck, which can also be reached by public transport via Bayreuth. Sturdy footwear - because that's what you need for this hike - takes you over the Sonnenweg, the Hohe Warte and finally over the Kirchleite to the Knodental. The Schlossleitenweg then leads you further into the idyllic Ölschnitztal. Passing several promising rocks, where you should absolutely enjoy the panorama, you finally hike along Siemensstraße to the Iron Age and from there via the nursery path back to the starting point.This path goes up and down again and again. Its viewpoints such as the Castel Sant'Angelo, the Thiesen and Ludwigsfelsen but also the idyllic rest areas and historical sites along the way are well worth the little effort.

      Nowhere in summer does it bloom as colorful and beautiful as around Rehau. You will find out on this hike. From the center of the village, which you can also reach by train, to the destination of the day tour, a very special plant accompanies you depending on the season: the arnica.With five station boards, this path gives you insights into the arnica project and the history of pond management and fish farming. Spread over twelve kilometers, you walk through colorful mountain meadows and marvel at bubbling pearl streams. It is mostly easy to go up and down, although one or the other demanding passage awaits you. On the way, the old rectory with beer garden will be happy to receive you. Here the arnica blooms particularly beautifully in June and July.The goal of this day tour is actually the pre-search hut. Once you have reached it, you can descend in about an hour and a half via the north route of the FGV to Niederlamitz or Selb. From there there are connections to the regional railways. Alternatively, you can hike back to Rehau on the hiking path via Pilgramsreuth at the old rectory and reach the village after about two hours.
