“The morning has gold in its mouth” I thought to myself this morning and made my way to the Eggeturm. The path from Kempen to Eggeweg leads over a steep path. I enjoy the beautiful grasses and flowers along the way and, when I get to the top, the wonderful view over Kempen. Few hikers are already on the way and enjoy the quiet of the morning like me.Shortly before the Eggeturm there are sheep in the meadow - the sight is wonderfully idyllic.The 17 m high Egge Tower is located on the Prussian Velmerstot, the highest point in the Egge Mountains at 468 m. The tower offers great views and can already be seen from a great distance.I continue over the Eggeweg to the Lippe Velmerstot, which is only slightly lower at 441 m. The path leads through a heather area, which is already showing the first flowers.Via a forest path and then a beautiful forest path I reach Feldrom and after another 2.3 km my starting point Kempen.Here I am looking forward to a delicious breakfast, which my favorite person has already prepared for me.

The hike leads from the parking lot / mobile home parking space at the indoor swimming pool in Borken (Hesse) around Lake Borken and into the districts of Nassenerfurth and Trockenerfurth.The Borkener See is an open pit lake that was created by recultivating the former Altenburg IV mine for open-cast lignite mining. The entire lake and the shore zones are under nature protection.Also worth seeing is Nassenerfurth Castle, called "Hirschgarten Castle" by the current owners. The castle café is open on Sundays from 2 p.m. and offers a.o. Seating in the entire garden area.There are fantastic butchers in both Nassenerfurth and Trockenerfurth. We especially love the "Ahle Worscht" (old sausage - because it matures for a very long time and can be stored for a long time). In the production of raw sausage, which has been done in northern Hesse for centuries by processing warm meat, preservatives and rapid ripening agents as well as flavoring or coloring additives are dispensed with.

We take a look at the beautiful old town of Rotenburg an der Fulda, then cross the Fulda, stroll through the Neustadt and hike up in the forest to the Alter Turm mountain.Here are the remains of the Rodenberg castle ruins, also known as the Rotenburg on the Old Tower. The name of the city is probably derived from the former castle (first mentioned in 1170).The way back leads us down to the Katzenkopfhäuschen, a viewing platform on Rotenburg an der Fulda from 1898, to the Rodenberger Alm (open on Fridays from 5 p.m., Saturdays and Sundays from 11 a.m.) and back to the Fulda.

We start in Tiefenort on the Werra and take a look at the listed St. Peters Church. The loopholes in the tower indicate a former fortified church.At the beautiful building of the city administration we meet the Werra-Burgen-Steig. The long-distance hiking trail leads from the source of the Werra in Fehrenbach to the mouth of the Werra in Hann. Münden (wbs.werra-burgen-steig.de).Then it's up to Krayenburg. The castle was first mentioned in 1155 as the "castrum" of the Hersfeld monastery and was later expanded into a fortress.There are two paths to choose from for the descent from the conical Krayenberg to Kieselbach. We choose the little-used one and sometimes would have needed a machete. Those who prefer a little less "nature feeling" should choose the second alternative (donkey path).After a little refreshment in Kieselbach in the Feldschänke restaurant, the way back to Tiefenort leads over beautiful field and forest paths.

Our round tour leads us first over a farm road and after crossing the Els over a forest path in the Elstal up to the Schweinfurt house.The way back is via forest paths to Oberelsbach, a state-recognized resort in the UNESCO Rhön Biosphere Reserve. The baroque parish church of St. Kilian from 1784 can be seen from afar. Because of its elevated position and rich decoration, it is called "Rhön basilica".

We start our round tour through the listed old town of Königsberg in Bavaria and enjoy the great half-timbered houses again, which shine in the morning sunlight quite differently than yesterday evening.We really like the pretty Regiomontanus fountain on the market square. We leave the town through the Unfindertor and walk to Unfind. Unfind is also known for its historic half-timbered houses, which are adorned with many family coats of arms. The wine that climbs up many houses is striking. Unfind is a wine village, next to hedge inns you can taste and buy wine in the inner courtyard of the Black Eagle.The path leads us steeply uphill along vines to Huthäusla, an old stone house above the village. We enjoy the wide view over Lower Franconia to the Rhön. Our next destination is the Urwiese nature reserve, which we reach via the Felsenhohlweg. Heath cloves, ziest, countless grasses, ormennig (royal herb) and countless other plants line the path here.We continue the hike in the direction of the Bramberg castle ruins, the path leads us over forest paths and forest paths that are sometimes very muddy.The Bramberg castle ruins were first mentioned in a document in 1108 and served as a bulwark.We reach the Ursee - this reminds us more of a chocolate fountain than a lake. The water is chocolate brown and we wonder which fish are being fished here. Maybe carp? They love such musty water. Maybe the lake is just so brown because of the heavy rain.Along the Königsberg Castle we reach the city of Königsberg in Bavaria again and let the evening fade away at the motorhome.

Our tour starts at the Kulmbach airfield, takes us over a forest path down to Oberpurbach, on over farm roads to Kauernburg and into the valley of the White Main. The White Main is one of the two source rivers of the Main. In Steinenhausen on the western outskirts of Kulmbach it flows together with the Red Main to form the Main.We cross the White Main and come back to a wooded area. Forest paths lead up to the Plassenburg, an imposing hilltop castle in the Renaissance style.Now we hike down to Kulmbach, stroll through the nice old town and taste the beers brewed here.Okay, then it went uphill again to the Kulmbach airfield ... 🙈

We start our sightseeing tour from a parking lot above the Veste Coburg and after 500 m we reach the medieval castle, which has been converted into a fortress.The path leads us through the Hofgarten to Ehrenburg Palace and on to the market square, which is connected to the old town by seven alleys. This is where the trade routes Nuremberg-Erfurt and Prague-Frankfurt am Main crossed, the beautiful town hall, the impressive town house (former ducal chancellery building) with its corner core (Coburg bay window) and the courtyard pharmacy are located here.After the tour of the old town, we will finally fortify ourselves in the traditional Loreley inn.
