Ich bin der Markus, liebe die Natur und bin begeisterter Bergradfahrer, egal ob mit oder ohne Motor. Weitere Aktivitäten sind das Wandern, Nordic Walking und der alpine Skilauf.
Finally some sun again 🌞 - I was like a junkie on withdrawal, totally inedible 😁. Anyone who was not outside in such a bombshell has really done something wrong 😁, or had to work 🤔. 😂 Sorry, it had to be. Great round in dream weather through our area with the goal of climbing rock "Hohler Fels", a climber was even there. Unfortunately the day after tomorrow it will be worse again, so tomorrow 🚵♂️ "tour" again.

Today's tour I borrowed from Da Steff 🚵💥, Merci for the template, and has been on my list for a long time. Today I finally made it and so I went first to the Eibenfels, whose ridge line is called the Eibgrat, and then to the Riegelstein telecommunications tower on the "Hohe Reut", at 637m the highest elevation in "Franconian Switzerland". The Kraxelei 🧗♀️ is one of the last adventures in our area and not entirely without it, the Eibgrat is almost consistently categorized as T3. Briefly explained: medium-difficulty mountain trails (red, T3) are predominantly narrow, often steep and can have passages that are dangerous to fall. ❗️ Difficult passages can mostly be bypassed, however, surefootedness and sturdy footwear are compulsory in addition to a healthy level of "head for heights". Even if it was sometimes a real "tightrope walk" because of the wet rocks and roots, it was a lot of fun and the demanding 1.4 km are more or less a "full body workout". In dry conditions, the Spieser Rundwanderweg over the Eibgrat is a great tour for 👨👩👧👧 "Everyone / Woman" and my recommendation for an "adventurous" activity on Sunday afternoon 😉.

This time I was drawn back to the "Franconian", namely to Pottenstein. Even if the weather wasn't as ⛅️ sunny as predicted, it was a nice loop through a wonderful landscape. First I explored the devil's cave for the visit with my girls, and then I made my way through the beautiful Klumpertal and the rocky world of the Jägersteig. A beautiful and interesting tour, past the Klumperquelle (a karst spring of the Weihersbach), the trout ponds at the former Klumpermühle and bizarre rock faces and rock formations. As a reward there was a coffee at the Klumpertal kiosk and 2 smoked trout from Heiner's trout smokehouse, an all-round successful excursion 🙂.

Bayreuth has been on my list for a long time, as my daughter got a visit from a friend on the weekend, of course the Wagner city was an obvious destination. When the weather was wonderful, we first went to the "Altes Schloss Eremitage" park and then went for a stroll through the city and went shopping in the city center. So there was something for everyone, first some culture for the parents and then something for the girls. The historic Hermitage Park is one of the most famous sights in the city of Bayreuth and is definitely worth a visit. Unfortunately, all the water features, who would have thought 😉, have already been made winterproof and so a visit for spring is already firmly planned. About the story: Margrave Georg Wilhelm had the Old Hermitage Palace built not far from Bayreuth in 1715, Margrave Friedrich then gave the complex as a gift to his wife Wilhelmine in 1735, the year he took office. The "good woman" was fascinated by the uniqueness of the facility, but immediately began extensive expansion measures. Something 🤔 probably didn't fit her 😁.

Today, before it gets stormy tomorrow, I allowed myself another hike in the "Fränkische". The starting point was Muggendorf and over the Felsensteig it went over the Oswald cave and the observation tower "Hohes Kreuz" to the Versturzhöhle Riesenburg cave. This absolutely worth seeing cave with the King Ludwig rocks and the gigantic hall was also the highlight and actual goal of this hike. Now I'm not so sure what the real "highlight" of the tour was, because in retrospect, there were only great sights on the hike in addition to the beautiful route, because the way back was peppered with beautiful vantage points, great Rock formations and the Engelhardsberg rest stop, where I treated myself to a well-deserved coffee. I can totally recommend this hike as it is. Beautiful caves (don't forget your torch), interesting rock formations, great views and a pleasant route make this tour a real "Franconian" experience.

Saturday morning, 🕙 10 a.m., 🅿️ to the dancing 🐢 turtle, 4️⃣ grinning 🙋♂️ boys and their 🚲 bikes: the formation of the “good mood express” has been completed. Our trio became a quartet through our Martin-Ernst from the Fichtelgebirge.
In advance, I was commissioned with the tour planning, which of course is a certain challenge for such professionals. So I try particularly hard 👍. We start at the Tier🙈garten in Nämberch and follow the trails to the lake of the Nackerten, the Birkensee. From here our tour runs smoothly on the Dünentrail / Röthenbachtrail to Ungelstetten. I notice how our train is getting faster and faster and an express is developing. Markus presses the tube .... shooting is the order of the day. In Ungelstetten, the barn cafe awaited us with the best cakes 🍰 and caffeine ☕, which allowed our carbohydrate storage to return to its optimum. After an extensive and ludicrous 🤣 coffee gossip, we went on, across to the old Ludwig Canal. We don't follow it for a long time, a short time later we leave the canal again to heat up via the mystical Wernloch and the Glaserberg trails towards Nuremberg 🏰. Of course, Steff in his home zone showed us one or the other mega line and dirt jumps. It was really-like. Finally, of course, stop by our Glubb (for outsiders, this is the 1st FCN ⚽️) we soon reach the Valznerweiher. Here we dine and reflect on a mega biker day.
I still have to thank you guys: Steff, Markus and Martin-Ernst, it was an honor to bike with you. What a MEGA Saturday with you super guys! The grin on your face will probably last a while. 🙋♂️

Today's tour went on a city tour of Nördlingen in the Ries Geopark, to the stamp station Bavaria - Discoverer at the Ries Crater Museum and to the traces of the Manga series Attack on Titan. The city in the "meteorite crater" has been on the list for a long time because of the well-preserved medieval city wall and the unique city center, so I used the return trip from Ulm ("work assignment") to take a look around Nördlingen and collect information about the Nördlinger Ries . The city with the all-round walkable city wall, the church tower "Daniel" and the medieval cityscape is absolutely worth seeing and unique in the world (at least that's what it says on the city's website), I liked it and I can really recommend a visit. I'll stop by with the girls again next summer, that's the plan, and spend a day here in this great city with culture, strolling through the city and shopping. noerdlingen.de/stadt-rathaus-aktuell/stadtplan

This time I was drawn to the “Großer Pfahl” near Viechtach, one of the largest and most important geotopes in Bavaria. The "Bavarian Stake" crosses the basement of the Bavarian Forest as an ancient fault line over a length of almost 150 km and runs in an almost straight line from Passau to Nabburg. I saw this rock formation in an episode of Terra X "Expedition Germany - The Legacy of Stones" last Sunday (October 3rd, 2021) and immediately thought: "You have to go there!" . In many places the stake runs underground and is only visible as a bump in the ground, at Viechtach it rises particularly impressively to the surface of the earth as a bizarre white quartz rock. The creation and use of the stake is clearly explained on an educational trail with various display boards, stations and in the information hut. Until 1992, the quartz rock was mined in the local quarry and used, for example, as gravel for road construction. There are several hiking trails in the Great Stake area, two of which are circular trails that run directly along the stake. I also used path number 4 (winter hiking trail), this also goes around the former quarry and leads to St. Antoniuspfahl. Absolutely impressive and rightly one of the most beautiful geotopes in Bavaria, only now and then the traffic noise of the nearby B85 bothers a little.
