Luck! Today it was again a relatively nice day, so off to the bike and nothing like going on. This time we went over the Höhenglücksteig and the Norissteig to Hirschbach. From here we continued through the beautiful Reichental (hiking and cycling tip!) To the wind hole and the Schlangenfichte at Großmeinfeld. The Schlangenfichte of Großmeinfeld is a conifer with long hanging branches, unfortunately damaged by a storm, the species is believed to be a remnant of the ice age. At the end of a nice tour, I also finished my 2000 kilometers on the bike, heart, what more do you want.

In glorious sunshine, today I am the Nordschleife of the 1000 meters of circular hiking trail taken to take the view from the castle ruins Lichtenstein nor the south side, in modified form, in attack. Although it already has the "first half" with a length of 10.7 km and a rise of 459 hm, it continued on the Houbirg, a mountain near Happurg with its Celtic Ringwall, to the "hollow rock" and then still to the high mountain near Mittelburg. Here you will find the very interesting "Archaeological Circular Path" with numerous information panels on the "Acropolis of the Celts". The nice thing about the 1000HMR is that it consists of 2 parts. You can wander or cycle the north and south routes independently of each other.

Today I have once again tackled the 800HMR (altitude circular walk) and am at the end of the tour again to Mühlkoppe to enjoy the view over Pommelsbrunn to Hohenstadt in the Pegnitz Valley. The 800-meter circular trail starts in Pommelsbrunn and is probably one of the most beautiful hiking trails in the area around Pommelsbrunn and Hersbruck. Nice but also demanding, 800 meters in almost 10 km route do not lie. This trail was also the start of this year's BR hiking week in September. For biking, the whole thing went quite well today, even if there were 2 or 3 sliding passages and was careful with the foliage, the wet stones and roots.

As a conclusion of the day I have made a round along the Altmühlsee and visited the bird island again. The sunset was beautiful and a trip to the bird island is always worthwhile. Overall a stressful but nice day. I can only warmly recommend these three lakes, Rothsee, Brombachsee and Altmühlsee. Of course not in midsummer for the holiday season when everything is overcrowded.

All good things come in threes, because it was not until the third visit that I found the artwork "House for a Boat". With this I have now visited all the artworks on the lakes and at one or the other work I already asked myself: Is this art or can it get away? But this decision always hits the viewer. The artist's thoughts were probably followed by only a few residents, the artwork is in any case not known to the locals. The object is in the summer by the vegetation also not to see, the way there is overgrown and an impertinence. In any case, the art object deserves a little more appreciation.

Used the rain-free afternoon to make a round around the big Rußweiher and the bird sanctuary. Contrary to expectations, some hikers were on the move, but this beautiful nature reserve is worthwhile even in this weather, even if the sun does not shine. Because of its importance, as an important bird breeding area, the lake was established in 1937 as a nature reserve "bird sanctuary Großer Rußweiher", really worth seeing. Nice round and the last stamp for my card I have also picked up.

Today I've made the Main-Danube Canal and its three mighty locks in Hilpoltstein, Leerstetten and of course Eckersmühlen with the visitor platform. All three locks have a smog drop height of 24.67 meters and thus the largest drop height which was built in Germany so far. Interesting was the European main watershed Rhine-Danube with the sculpture called "crown" which indicates there the course of the watershed.
