Bin immer auf der Suche nach schönen Wanderungen mit überwiegend schmalen Pfaden, bin kein Freund von breiten Kies- bzw. Forstwegen... was heißt kein Freund: ich kann sie nicht ausstehen! 😜 - höchstens als Verbindungswege. Tourentipps gerne für ganz Deutschland. Suche auch schöne Mehrtagestouren (bis zu einer Woche) für Selbstversorger mit Zelt oder Biwak.Komoot ist eine gute Seite, aber leider hapert es sehr mit der Suchfunktion. Finde oft nicht, was ich suche... bin aber sicher: es ist da. Verborgen. Irgendwo. Deswegen: falls ihr Tipps habt, her damit.
Thanks to Mary for "running" :-) Very nice hike, which is definitely worthwhile because of the sintered terraces if it has rained a lot beforehand or if the snow has melted accordingly. Now, February 24th, over two weeks after the last rain and after the snowmelt had ended, there was still plenty of water flowing! Grade 1+ with an asteriskDetails:
The tour is varied with narrow paths, especially on the first two kilometers, in between there is a bit of asphalt, sometimes field and meadow paths and also short pieces of forest. We only saw two hikers on the way (Wednesday), so it couldn't be much more lonely. At the end of February the round is definitely a sun round; The tour is also interesting in spring and summer, when everything is in bloom or the trees are fully cut, so here and there it should be significantly more shady. We gave ourselves a lot of time with a total of five hours, often stopped and looked around, i.e. we: dawdled 😊 If you want to go faster, you can of course also. In total, around 400 meters of altitude were incurred, yes, good, but that is spread over the route. It was hardly exhausting.Conditions:
no special; some perseverance, that's all. The paths were all easy to walk, no difficult parts (except for a shortcut down the slope), just a little mud, that was it. Best snack point: whether on the plateau to Dürrbrunn an der Marter (with bench).

You can do it.Details:
Tour with lots of sunshine and a short stretch of forest (full of moss, very nice); There are hardly any narrow paths, the round usually runs over asphalt and land consolidation paths; But that didn't matter this time, the main thing was a lot of SUN!
Really grand and impressive is the Schwalbenstein, which suddenly towers over a meadow, a mighty overhang that will hopefully last a while.
The Schwalbachtal itself can be traversed very quickly (when you come out of the forest, right at the “entrance” of the valley, you will find a bench for 3 people for a snack).Conditions:
no special. In Schirradorf it starts with a few easy inclines, during the course of the loop it usually stays flat; all paths are easy to go, here and there (after the snow melted) it was only a bit or sometimes very muddy.

That was something! Everything covered in snow, snowfall, active tumblers (really a lot of water!) ... that really happens very, very rarely! An outstanding tour, o-ton: "One of the most beautiful that we had so far in the Franconian." (and we already had a few).Attention:
with THE weather and water situation you can NOT get to the other side on the way; we had to take off our shoes for a moment and roll up our pants.
If you don't want to translate, just go back the same way.
By the way, we were on the road longer ... about 2.5 hours (a lot of dawdling); the specification of 1:57 h is not correct, for whatever reason.

Question in advance:
I took photos of a kind of "granary" above Tiefenellern in the forest near the parking lot. Does anyone know what that was? Probably out of order in the middle of the last century due to the trees :-)Conclusion:
Surprisingly "nice" tour; ideal for sunny autumn days, as you usually have the sky above you.Details:
Easy hike with narrow paths in the forest at the beginning (approx. 2 km), then open fields and hike on agricultural paths. We don't usually like the latter very much, but due to the sunny autumn day it was just the thing. Right at the beginning a detour to the climbing rock "Eulenstein", from there you go into the forest to the small, historical "Jungfernhöhle".Conditions:
no special; essentially easy to walk paths, but here and there we briefly walked across country (in the forest), you should be careful here (stones and roots under the leaves);

There are certainly enough tours for this at Komoot. So I didn't want to post anything. However, I was so pleasantly surprised by the circumnavigation that I do it after all. I have been to Walberla one time or the other, but only through the "normal" routes. In fact, there are nice, narrow paths that are really fun, especially in autumn when you hike over and through foliage for a large part of the tour. Due to the shortness of the loop, I would call it a walk and not a hike.Conditions:
few. Of course you have to go from the foot of the Walberla up to the plateau and back down again. There are climbs here and there, including an easy but steep one (Km 5.40). Should not be a problem.
But: after rain it is sometimes very slippery (roots and stones hidden under leaves); I had to be careful.GPS:
I put the tour together myself. But then I deviated from the plan on the way. This resulted in this beautiful tour. All paths were easy to walk, even where the path ended on the map (km 3.53), it continued without any problems.

Very varied and natural hike in combination with an easy via ferrata (mostly A / B); fantastic scenery, beautiful views and mostly narrow paths complete the picture and make the tour really worthwhile.Conditions:
Not very physically demanding as the tour is relatively short; Anyone who suffers from a fear of heights, is not sure-footed and does NOT have a via ferrata set with them should not do the tour. We saw people on the climb again who had no equipment with them, there were women in street shoes (with high heels!) And people who were definitely not familiar with the height and were still on the climb ... (I asked myself how many missions the mountain rescue service probably drives in the year)Details:
We only arrived in the afternoon and had chosen the round as a prelude and were positively surprised. At the beginning there were still a lot of people at the parking lot (Sunday), but they quickly dispersed over different paths. After about one kilometer the climb begins, the "most difficult" point comes right at the beginning at the entrance (max. B / C). Furthermore, it means: enjoy and have fun. The climb does not require a lot of skill or strength and is well prepared (steps, steel cables, etc.).
At one point in the rock it is right - let's say - "figure-hugging" before it goes up via a stepladder ... :-)
After the climb you go back to the start on very beautiful paths.Tip:
Either go very early or very late and not on the weekend / vacation. As mentioned, it was Sunday afternoon for us, around 2.30 p.m. It was fine there.

Supplement to the almost identical tour "Corner of Obertrubach - Betztstein / many narrow paths (1)"; here a year later with pictures of the outstanding Fuchsweg along one of the longest rock formations (Langer Berg) in Franconian Switzerland including Juraelephant and other beautiful things.

Very nice, lonely hike in September. The ascent partly via ski slopes is difficult, later steep ascent over block terrain to the summit at 2828 meters. Great view, also suitable for people with a fear of heights, as - as far as I remember - not exposed. Also feasible for people with knee problems, as the descent stretches for many kilometers along the mountain ridge and is rarely steeper (we have tried it :-))Details:
We drove to the end of the tour as far as Ochsengarten and from there we took the bus (the first trip) at around 8.45 a.m. to Kühtai. There start at the church. First it went up on the ski slopes. We got the hiking tip in Oetz from the tourist information and asked - due to the boring tour the day before - not to send us over the ski slopes. And there they were again, but: much more pleasant and lonely than the day before. Ok so far. Then past curious horses, steadily uphill to the summit. Duration approx. 2 hours with short breaks. Then descent into the valley over the wide ridge with a view of both valleys (Oetztal and Stubaital)! Top notch tour, was fun.Conditions:
In my memory there were no really exposed areas, but surefootedness is required, again and again block rock. And: of course, nothing works without a good physical condition. Before the summit it goes steeply uphill.

Very nice, worthwhile and varied tour through two valleys and over a ridge. The views are really great, the paths are easy to walk and anything but monotonous. Surefootedness is of course required, but even the ridge is not really exposed, i.e. even people who are afraid of heights shouldn't have a problem with it. Before and after the ridge, the block area is partially rope insured, although the path is relatively easy to walk. In bad weather, especially possible danger of thunderstorms, absolutely avoid, as one is often in open terrain.Conditions:
Not for beginners due to the length of the tour and the altitude difference. Surefootedness is essentially only required in the block area and on the ridge, the rest of the tour consists of narrow paths and root paths (except for the approach from the street).Info:
If the tour really starts, you pass a few huts right away. These are recreational huts for school groups or something like that, so NOT managed huts (at least that's how we read it).

Very beautiful, lonely ridge route with an initially steep climb; The tour is rarely used, visible on a narrow path that is initially recognizable as a clear path, but later becomes more indistinct over the ridge (but still recognizable :-)) The descent runs over Schrofen meadow terrain.Danger:
we went down over a notch, looked completely harmless, but it was quite steep and you had to use both hands to help - much easier: bypass the notch above over meadows!The starting point is the village of Boden right next to the inn, there is also a yellow hiking sign as an indication.Conditions:
no exposed areas, sure-footedness required; The tour is quite short, but you should be in good condition, as the ascent is quite steep and, in good, warm weather, quite sweaty
