      The Binauer Rundweg offers you a lot of nature, wonderful views and history. So look forward to a varied circuit, which, with its nine kilometers, is perfect for a hiking tour for the whole family. The starting point of the route is in the center of Binau - by the way, it is also very easy to reach by public transport from Heidelberg or Heilbronn.

      At the beginning you follow the Neckar on its loop around the place, until you then leave the river and start the gentle climb up to the Binauer Höhe. Once at the top, you can put your legs up on a lounger and enjoy the fantastic view over the Neckar Valley.

      The altitude for today is done, now you hike downhill again to Binau. On your way back you pass the apple orchard and the Dauchstein castle ruins with their eye-catching keep. When you return to the center of the village, you can take a look at the remains of the historic castle before you look for a cozy place to stop off at the end of the day.

      There is a lot of variety on this 13-kilometer hike: you listen to the rattling mill wheel in Ünglert, explore the ruins of the Wildenburg and learn a lot about rural life in the Middle Ages in the forest museum. And of course there is also a good portion of Odenwald. Thanks to its great mix of nature and interesting stations along the way, this circular hike is also very suitable for families with children.It starts at the former school building in Donebach. At the beginning you hike downhill into the idyllic Mudtal. After almost two kilometers you will pass the mill village of Ünglert. In the tranquil place the Mudbach and Donebach flow together, so there was once enough water to drive the mill wheels. Today, however, only one of the seven mills is left.You continue through the valley along the Mud and cross the border between Baden-Württemberg and Bavaria. After about seven kilometers, the path begins to rise gently - however, there is still a short and crisp ascent to the ruins of the Wildburg. If you have arrived at the former fortress, you are more than granted a break for it. Thanks to the well-preserved walls, you can easily imagine how the knights and damsels once lived here. There is also a multi-storey wooden platform very close by, which is great for hanging out, among other things.Then it goes uphill, the next highlight awaits you soon: the Watterbacher Haus forest museum. A visit to the small museum is worthwhile to learn more about the history of the region. After this educational excursion into the Middle Ages, you can stop off at the “Grüner Baum” country inn in Preunschen. Freshly strengthened, you can then cover the last part of the round to your starting point in Donebach.
