Today we went up to the Zelgli again. The mostly wide path from Merishausen led through the quiet, quiet Doschdtal. Here, too, we encountered information from the Baptist movement that lived in this region and had to meet secretly. About 1 km outside of Merishausen you will find the Taufen spring with an artificially created pool.
Below the Schleitheimer Randenturm we reached a rest area with many benches and tables, a tipi tent and a catered hut that is open on weekends.
The ascent to the edge tower is rewarded with a wonderful view of the Black Forest, Hegau and, if the weather is favorable, the Alpine chain.
Our way led from the edge tower over serpentines down into the valley. Via Talisbänkli, Chrüzäg and Tüfels-Chuchi we reached the starting point in Merishausen

Today we tackle the second part of the Anabaptist Path from Hemmental CH up to the Zelgli. At the end of the bus, the route from Hemmental follows the forest along quiet forest paths. After just under 3 km the signpost points up a steep path (long trousers - because of the nettle and thistles, as well as hiking sticks are an advantage). We cross a road, continue up the path and soon have reached the Taufen stone. This was set up in 2004 to commemorate the persecution of the Anabaptists and as a sign of reconciliation.
It is not very far to our destination Zelgli (refuge, benches, barbecue area and a large playground).
We continue on a wide, dusty road to Chrüzwäg, then we climb the steep path down to Hemmental with its beautiful half-timbered buildings.
Along the entire route, benches and various barbecue areas invite you to rest.

After a long break, today is the third tour on the Vorderrhein.
Unfortunately, the route we planned (with a few exceptions) was not to our liking, much wide routes, sometimes on roads. BUT the area is great, there is a lot to discover. The pretty villages we came through, some chapels, the mill in Disla. In any case, the old wooden bridge -Punt Gronda- should be visited. And again and again the Rhine greets down in the valley.

Have driven through this valley so often by car and today a hike was on the program. We met nobody on the way, it is a very quiet valley. From time to time some vehicles can be heard in the distance, otherwise only the birds chirped. A valley to let your mind wander. Today mostly wide forest paths ran to get an overview.
