From Obertrubach in a beautiful round to Höllenstein, to the Jura Elefant, to the Stierberg ruins ... pure Franconian Switzerland. Lots of climbers are in the rocks. Equipment is not required to cope with the path, but hikers should not go carelessly on this route. In particular, the section on the Fuchsweg is sometimes very dangerous - you should be fit and sure-footed, good shoes are a must anyway and sticks cannot hurt. But that's the only way to get close to the rocks!

The Tennenloher Forest is a nature reserve on land that was used by the military. The wild horses (Przewalski horses) and the peacock goats have the task of keeping the sandy areas and the poor grass open, but of course they are also the crowd puller. Nevertheless, you can quickly immerse yourself in nature via small forest paths - it was beautiful today and I would plan to visit the area again in the middle of summer in the scorching heat: I imagine that the sand dunes, pine forests and heather areas will then be even more intense.

On the “Erlebnisweg Wallenstein's Camp” one goes around the historical army camp from 1632, which was built by Albrecht von Wallenstein during the Thirty Years' War to prevent the advance of the troops of the Swedish King Gustav Adolf.
Many explanatory stations have been set up along the way, which illustrate the situation in this war - here in this place.As a sponsor, the city of Stein has a corresponding internet service for this; In addition, a smartphone app is made available to call up further information at the individual stations.
City of Stein - Wallensteins Lager Adventure Trail (stadt-stein.de/erleben/erlebnisweg-wallensteins-lager)The path was reopened in March 2021, consistently described and signposted, but the idea of routing along historical stations is not fundamentally new.On May 1st, 2019 I tried the tour: Circumnavigating Wallenstein's camp in 1632 - detour and astray (exploratory tour) | komoot.de/tour/65177245At that time I had moaned a little about the missing path markings. This has gotten much, much better with the renovation. Nevertheless, I made a few wrong turns, which I now take on my head. Perhaps there are now a few too many markings (especially in Zirndorf). Here the way from in front of the Georg Schneider Bridge was closed due to construction work and I had to walk a little detour and then I got confused by the “connecting paths” in the signs - the markings look very similar. That's why my lap is a little longer than advertised. You should also be more attentive than me on the “Grenzstraße” (underpass Zirndorfer Straße): because of the different directions of the circular route, many arrows meet here.
In my Collection circular hiking trail around the Wallenstein’s camp | komoot.de/collection/1124786/-rundwanderweg-um-das-wallensteinsche-lager you can now see where the reconstruction of the original, but partly only conjectured, route, congruent with today's "largely official round" was 😊
