      Powerful rock caves, unique viewpoints and rippling waters characterize this circular hike. The caves in the idyllic Kylltal were inhabited in the later Paleolithic age and the Romans also left their traces. So if you find a few pieces of pottery on the ground, you'd better not throw them away.From the Trier-Ehrang train station you climb steeply to the Ehranger pulpit. When you've had enough of the view, follow the route to the caves below the stronghold. Here you will discover huge sandstone caves that were inhabited and used thousands of years ago. The intense red of the rock makes this scenery even more impressive.You can enjoy a fantastic panorama of the Kylltal from the Geyersley viewpoint before you hike on to the Pützlöchern. Azurite and malachite were mined here as early as the 2nd century. The path then runs through the idyllic Butzerbach valley with its small waterfalls. A worthwhile stop is the Ramstein ruins, the remains of which rise above the tree tops. The course of the Kyll finally brings you back to Ehrang.

      The picturesque town of Füssen lies right on the border with Austria, surrounded by clear lakes and high peaks. This region is world famous for the fairytale castle Neuschwanstein, which is said to have inspired Walt Disney. In this circular hike we do not take you to the castle, but to the beautiful nature around it. So you can look forward to unique views of the imposing building and the Allgäu mountains.From Füssen train station, you go to the banks of the Lech, whose turquoise water rushes down several stairs. From the valley it goes up a steep path to the Calvary, from which you can enjoy the first fantastic view of the day. From the summit you hike down to the shimmering Schwansee and on its picturesque shore you walk to Hohenschwangau. With a view of the enchanting castles of Hohenschwangau and Neuschwanstein, the path takes you into the Pöllat Gorge: metal stairs and footbridges lead directly along rugged rock faces and the ice-cold mountain stream rushes beneath you.You climb up a myriad of steps to a unique viewpoint. On a forest path you get to the beautiful Alpsee. Its water shimmers crystal clear and at the other end of the lake you can see the two royal palaces. Finally, the wild and romantic Alprosenweg takes you back to Füssen, which is well worth exploring.

      Many legends and myths are related to the bizarrely shaped Externsteine, which have always fascinated people. You can explore the rugged sandstone cliffs, which rise up to 40 meters in height, on stairways and viewing platforms from the 19th century. Your head for heights is tested in some places. This circular hike also takes you into the beautiful forest and rocky landscape around the Externsteine.At the edge of Berlebeck you dive into the shady forest and follow the path uphill through the mystical ghost gorge. Passing mighty rocks, you come to the mountain ridge called bird baptism and look down from the vantage point to Holzhausen. Through the wild and romantic gorge on the Bärenstein you now hike to the absolute highlight of this hike: The impressive Externsteine rise directly at the water of the Upper Pond.
       
      After an extensive tour of exploration, it goes on forest paths, through heaths and past viewpoints to the Falkenburg. From the ruin you can enjoy a wonderful panorama. Afterwards, the route takes you back to Berlebeck, where you can still visit the Adlerwarte.

      This wonderful circular hike is characterized by the element of water: You hike along babbling brooks, past mossy rocks and gnarled trees. Especially in the early morning, when the fog slowly dissolves, this area turns into a mystical magic forest. The tour is rounded off by the shimmering surface of the Pöhl dam.From the train station in Jößnitz it goes into the forest and on the banks of the Weißen Elster. You follow the rushing river to the impressive Elstertalbrücke, the second largest brick bridge in the world. In a "flowing" transition, the tour takes you from the Elstertal to the dreamlike Trieb Valley, where pure nature awaits. From the Pöhl barrier wall, your gaze wanders over the vast expanse of water in the reservoir and from the nearby Julius-Mosen tower you can enjoy a completely new perspective on the dam. You can treat yourself to a well-deserved refreshment in the rustic Gasthof Lochbauer before you loop back to the starting point.

      A lot of rest, the highest climbing rock in the Thuringian Forest and the highest dam in Germany await you on this circular hike at the Schmalwasser reservoir. Soft forest paths lead to beautiful viewpoints and along the water.You start at the parking lot near the dam and dive into the forest. After a few minutes you will reach the mighty dam, which is 76 meters high from the bottom of the valley. In the middle of the lake you can discover a tower that is used for drinking water. Along the reservoir you hike past the distinctive Wolfszahn and reach the idyllic rest area Meister-Eckhart-Blick. From the shore of the small Falkensteinsee you can see the eponymous climbing rock Falkenstein. From here it goes up to the Great Buchberg with a view of the reservoir and then back to the starting point of the hike.

      Thousands of years ago the volcanoes of the Eifel went out and left small and large craters. Over time, they have filled with water and formed a unique ecosystem. Nowhere in Europe can you find so many different maars as here. In the nature reserve Dauner Maare you will experience a fascinating natural landscape formed by volcanic activity with rare animal and plant species.Your circular hike starts at the Gemündener Maar, where there is a café and a swimming pool. In the nature reserve you can experience different appearances of the Eifelmaare in close proximity. Bathing is forbidden in the Weinfeld Maar and it is therefore an important habitat for birds and insects. From the Maarkreuz you can enjoy a beautiful view of the flat Schalkenmehrener Maar, some of which have moor-like silting stages. At the end of this tour you climb up to the Dronketurm on Mäuseberg, from which you can take another look at all three Maare.
