If stage 3/5 was already blessed with prospects, this stage will top it. The Brandenkopf has never been more beautiful. In the background the Kniebis and Northern Black Forest. The view towards Elztal, Kandel and the southern Black Forest is also impressive. The Vosges are crystal clear today.

The tour crosses the Bwindi Forest, home to half of all free-ranging mountain gorillas. A rancher accompanies us and explains animals and plants. A guard protects us in case we should meet forest elephants.
The trail is also used by locals as the only alternative would be a six hour drive around Bwindi Forest.March 3, 2023

Today's destination is the highest mountain in the northern Black Forest. From the starting point in Forbach in the Murg Valley, there is a steep 1,400 meter ascent to be mastered. Rocky paths and paths look romantic, but make progress difficult.
