      Today I went hiking with my family in Elfringhauser Switzerland again. It's always worth a trip, even if many people had the same idea as us 😘 ...
      The tour starts and ends at the "Am Roten Haus" car park for hikers. The circular route initially leads through a lot of forest, steadily rising slightly, past a small pond to the adventure farm "Bergerhof". It was extremely well attended today. With children, the farm is a nice stopover with ponies, goats, sheep and play equipment. I was very happy when we escaped the crowd and continued on the way. We crossed a huge meadow with free-range chickens and then passed further forest sections, along pastures and Christmas tree plantations, again and again with views of the gently rolling landscape. I liked the second part of the hike a little better because of the varied views.
      Have fun hiking afterwards 😃🤗 ....

      If I was already enthusiastic about the Moselle region before, I am even more so after this tour. Here the hiker's heart will find everything it desires 🥰. I started at the Lösenich roundabout bus stop (bus line 360 goes from Bernkastel-Kues or Traben-Trarbach and stops here). Schwupps over the Moselle bridge to the start of the Erdener Klettersteig. That’s a highlight. You walk in the vineyard over narrow paths, stairs and ladders ... again and again the view opens up into the vastness, down to the river and towards Ürzig. You can choose between three levels of difficulty for the climb, although I did not find the hardest one so demanding. You should be free from giddiness and surefooted.
      Once at the top, I switched to the official Moselsteig stage, which leads from Ürzig to Traben-Trarbach and is well signposted. The path leads along vineyards, through forest sections and again and again there is a fantastic view.

      On this day I hiked from Traben-Trarbach over the mountain to Bernkastel-Kues. The tour starts behind the Buddha Museum (yes, there is something like that here) and leads through vineyards and forest over to the other side. It is just under 6 km on a direct route. Bernkastel-Kues is a tourist attraction. I haven't seen so many international tour groups around me for a long time. It was almost a little too much for me, so I quickly fled to the vineyards again. Back to Traben-Trarbach I made a bigger loop, over the so-called Schanze and the Koppelberg. Beautiful up there with great views over the landscape. We recommend. The way back through the forest was a bit long but at the end I was rewarded with the sight of the church in Trarbach in the evening sunlight.

      Today I hiked a beautiful tour on the Moselle, the so-called Lorettaweg near Traben-Trarbach. The hike leads steadily through the forest up to Starkenburg. There are still remains of the castle ruins and from the "Starkenburger Pavilion" you have a wonderful view. From there the path leads past fields and meadows to the Grevenburg ruins. Otherwise you can drink wonderful wine here, but the restoration is closed at the moment.
      There is also the Franzosensteig directly at the castle. A steep ascent (or descent, depending on which direction you are walking from) along the rock. When you get to the top, you have a great view of the Moselle loop.

      Today we walked stage 5 of the Werra-Burgen-Steig from Bad Sooden-Allendorf to Ludwigstein Castle. A long route with beautiful vertical meters (500 meters) and views. There are also a few sections that are not as varied with forest roads through the forest. Highlights are definitely the Rosskopfturm with a complete panoramic view of the landscape, the natural monument Großer Habichtstein (climbing rock and view) and the field crossing with a view of Ludwigstein Castle. At the moment the fields around the castle are blooming purple and the trees are colored autumn. Wonderful 😍. You can also spend the night at the castle (youth hostel).
      Twice we did not see the signs for Steige X5H and went too far. So it is always advisable to have an alternative card with you 🙈😉.

      Fog and drizzle hike on the Werra-Burgen-Steig ... when we started from our accommodation in Hitzelrode, we could hardly see our own hand in front of our eyes ... luckily it got a little better later. We changed the tour a little bit and hiked a bit on the former column path of the GDR. Then it went on through the forest of the so-called Hessian Switzerland. If it hadn't been so cloudy, we would have been able to enjoy the great views, including the Werra. We googled them later 🤣. Rothestein Castle is also on this stage, currently privately owned, but we still caught a glimpse. The last section of the route is also very beautiful, along the Werra to the half-timbered town of Bad Sooden-Allendorf. Tip: relax your tired muscles after the hike in the Werra thermal baths. Brine bath, sauna area and swinging hanging loungers at the graduation tower at least made my wellness heart beat faster 😘.

      Today we ran the 7th stage of the Werra-Burgen-Steig. We started at Eschwege HBF. I know the area here a little by now and I was thrilled by the beautiful landscape again, especially now in autumn. The stage leads to the village of Hitzelrode. First you walk along fishing ponds, past meadows and fields and through beautiful forest sections. Behind the village of Neuenrode, which you pass, the path runs a piece parallel to the premium hiking trail P4 ... on a ridge from which you have wonderful views in between, including the Werratalsee. Conclusion: The tour was varied, well signposted and provided with numerous great resting places 😉.

      Childhood memories ... turned a lap around the Wendebach reservoir and the surrounding fields. The lake is great for swimming and rafting in the summer 😀.

      Today's hike started from the privately owned Bladenhorst Castle. A beautiful moated castle, which unfortunately is only partially visible from the outside. From here it went along the Rhine-Herne Canal. A fascinating nature reserve was right on the first section of the canal. Green shimmering expanses of water from which trees protrude and obviously a paradise for all kinds of poultry. I missed a telephoto lens.
      The tour continued through the village of Pöppinghausen (not particularly spectacular), along the Emscher to a tower sculpture, which was created during the Emscherkunst 2010. From here we walked a bit through the forest and past meadows until we landed back at the starting point on the Rhine-Herne Canal. On the way there is a nice-looking country cafe (Hof zur Nieden) to stop off at. Conclusion: varied hike, without incline, a lot of asphalt but lots of sun!
