Wandern ist für mich eine Auszeit vom Beruf und Termindruck. Schon während der Vorbereitung und Anreise habe ich ein Lächeln im Gesicht. Bereits nach den ersten Schritten tauche ich schließlich in die Natur ein und vergesse den Alltag. Die Bewegung und die abwechslungsreichen Landschaften tun ihr übriges. Alle Herausforderungen kommen mir leicht und alle Probleme unwichtig vor. Voller Kraft und guter Laune geht es dann nach dem Wandern zurück. Bedingt durch die Lage unseres Wohnorts bin ich gern im Nordschwarzwald, im Pfälzer Wald, auf der Schwäbischen Alb und in den Vogesen unterwegs. Mindestens einmal im Jahr muss es auch in die Alpen gehen.

We started near the new town hall in Gernsbach, right next to the Murg Valley Railway. There is also a bus stop and a free car park. From there it was 1.5 km through the village, which was not so overwhelming now, but there is no alternative. A hiking gate for the Gernsbach circuit greeted us on the outskirts. But right behind the gate we kept to the left. We couldn't find the route marked on Komoot, there are no signs. Here we climbed over a rock about 40 m from Tor and then found the path above it, which we took uphill and then further on the ridge, which opened up beautiful views with a few benches. At 4.5 km the path met a forest path in the Laufbach valley. From here we followed the hiking sign for the Gernsbacher Runde, a red flower or a compass, romantically upstream along the Laufbach to Loffenau. The Laufbach waterfall is just before the entrance to the village. Then it went through the historic town center with its numerous half-timbered houses and further following the red compass to the Lautenfelsen, here there were always very beautiful distant views of the Rhine plain and the Vosges. Behind the Lautenfelsen we then left the Gernsbacher Runde and headed towards Oberstrot. First on a wide driveway and then again and again on narrow paths steadily downhill until we came across the premium long-distance hiking trail, the Murgleiter. Following the hiking signs of the Murgleiter, we crossed the town of Obertsrot and left the Murgleiter again to keep in the direction of Grafensprung. Immediately after the Grafensprung, we continued on a narrow path up to Eberstein Castle. There we came across the Murgleiter again, followed it on narrow paths to Gernsbach with its beautiful historic town center. This was a very varied and beautiful tour. Recommendable.

After our return from vacation at the end of August, our weekends were occupied with other dates throughout September, we actually had no time to hike. This Sunday we were able to insert a shorter, medium-difficult lap. The tour was on easy-to-walk paths and paths. Only a crossing of the Eulenbach over a ford on small stones required a little concentration, that was all. We started at Kapfenhardter Mühlen. In the bottom of the valley there are two mills that are still in operation and at the same time are hotel operations. The upper Kapfenhardter mill has been in the possession of the Mönch family for eleven generations and since 1693, who also accepted overnight guests at an early stage. The lower Kapfenhardter Mühle is also run by a Mönch family, now in the 6th generation. I couldn't find out whether this is one and the same family or two different families.We started at the hiking car park opposite the lower Kapfenhardter Mühle and followed the Eulenbachtal above the car park on easily accessible paths through a beautiful, idyllic mixed forest. After about 2 km we crossed the Eulenbach and continued to follow the course of the valley, always rising slightly until we reached the high-altitude health resort Schömberg. We crossed the place through the spa gardens. Above the village we hiked to the new "Himmelsglück" observation tower. At the moment the tower is used exclusively as a lookout tower. However, a flying fox and a flyline are still to be built. With the flyline you should go down comfortably through the forest or you can then rush head first down into the spa park with the flying fox. But it's not that far yet. Admission for the ascent of the tower is due now and I think it's pretty steep. I photographed the price list. From the observation tower we went to the Zollernblick, which is located on a ridge. There is also an elevated vantage point from which the Swabian Alb can be clearly seen. From Zollernblick we went on, now through the forest again, to Schwarzenberg, near which there is a stone circle (based on the stone circle of Stonehenge). We crossed Scharzenberg and followed the path to Bieselberg. There is a small observatory there. The Pforzheim Astronomical Working Group operates one of the most efficient observatories in the area. Guided tours are also offered twice a month. Anyone interested can find more information at sternwarte-bieselsberg.de. After crossing Bieselsberg, the path led us back to the lower Kapfenhardter Mühle, which was quite steep at the end.

The Himmelsleiter comprises more than 1200 steps, an irregular staircase made of roughly hewn uneven sandstones leading from Heidelberg Castle directly to the summit region of the Königstuhl. It begins at the first or last bend of the Molkenkurweg, climbs steeply up the mountain slope to the south. It takes you over 1,300 steps, sometimes with very short steps, 270 meters in altitude and is more recommended for an ascent than a descent. A great highlight. When you arrive at the top of the Königstuhl, you will be rewarded with a very beautiful view of Heidelberg and the Rheingraben. Since the Königstuhl can be reached by mountain railway or by car and there is a mountain inn and hotel there, there is a lot going on at the weekend. Immediately behind the hotel we went back into the forest and after a short time we were walking on forest trails and paths to ourselves. After a loop in the forest, we stopped at the Leopoldstein hut. From there it went steadily downhill to Arberetum II. Here the forest opened up and gave way to pastures. Unfortunately, the way there was next to and also on the road, which is not so nice. After Arberetum II, we continued downhill to the Drei-Töge-Hütte. There we kept sharply to the right and climbed up again until we reached the sequoia trees. The largest tree there is very impressive. A wooden ring is built around the tree to show how big and thick the largest sequoia tree in the world is. From the sequoia tree it went on to the Gaisberg tower. The outside staircase to the top of the tower is an unusual design here. Unfortunately, the tower is now too low for the forest around it. From there you can only see the forest. From the Gaisberg tower it went down to Heidelberg, past mighty villas to Heidelberg Castle, which was the culmination of the tour. We ended our tour several hundred meters above the castle.

The Black Forest town of Schramberg is known as the cradle of the German watch industry. In 1861, Erhard Junghans built the first modern watch factory in the Black Forest, thereby establishing Schramberg's prosperity. The astronomical clock on the town hall is unique. In addition to the Schramberg local time, it shows a variety of astronomical data. Unfortunately, not only the shell remains of the sheen of the Junghans factory.Our tour started at Weiherberggasse, where there is a large parking lot and where you can park for free on Sundays. From there we crossed the pedestrian zone in the town center and turned right at the town hall. Now it went steadily uphill, first through the spa gardens over numerous stairs. Here we just followed the blue diamond signs. Above the park we followed the yellow diamond uphill until we came across the Privy Council path. On this path that runs along the slope, we hiked to Schlangenbühl. We crossed the village and continued to follow the yellow diamond in the direction of Tischneck. The village of Tischneck was our highest point on our tour. There is also a schnapps fountain at the beginning of the village. After we had crossed the place we hiked on, above the village to the marked castle ruins of Berneck. There are only a few remains of the castle ruins that indicate building. From the castle ruins of Berneck we continued on the Heuwegle. A narrow, partly exposed path. We followed this for several kilometers until it spread to a forest path. Now it was steady, partly steep, downhill to the Falkenstein district. Here we crossed the street and climbed on the other side of the valley to the lower and then upper Falkenstein castle ruins. From there it went on to the imposing castle ruins of Hohenschramberg. After visiting the great castle, we descended again, crossed the center of Schramberg again and thus came to our starting point.

At 17 kilometers, the Raab Gorge is the longest continuous gorge in Austria. The water of the Raab, romantic footbridges, steep cliffs and gorges shape the landscape. You can either hike only in the small Raabbachklamm, which should also be suitable for prams (not checked yourself), or in the large Raabklamm, which already had the first steep and demanding climbs ready for us after a few hundred meters of hike. The further we went up the river, the more adventurous and difficult the path became. After about 1.5 hours down in the gorge, we got out and returned to our starting point.

After our week of hiking with crossing the Alps from Innsbruck to Meran, we drove on to Lake Millstatt in Carinthia on our return. About 2.5 km below the Millstätter Hut, at the Schwaiger Hut, there is a large car park. There we parked our car and hiked the short way to the hut to spend the night there for three days. The mountains north of the lake are not that high, at most just over 2,000 m. The Millstätter Hütte is an extremely small and cozy hut that is particularly popular with families, including those with small children. The tours there are easy to do with children and there is no risk of falling. You can find more information at millstaetterhuette.at
I can only recommend the hut. We liked it very much.From the Millstätter hut we went on a circular hike the next morning. We initially hiked on an easy path in the direction of the Alexanderhütte, to which we made a short detour, and then turned right on a narrow meadow path uphill to our first summit of this tour, the Tschirwegernock. Here we were greeted by a strong and cold wind. From the summit cross we continued on the ridge, which we left after about halfway to the left and headed towards the Sommereggeralm and now steadily moved down the valley, sometimes slightly, sometimes steeply. From the Sommereggeralm, which we passed directly over the terrace there, we followed the path through the forest until we turned right above, shortly before the Hansbauerhütte, and then climbed steadily uphill again meandering to the Tschiernock. On the Tschiernock we came across the long-distance hiking trail, the Alpe-Adria-Trail, which we now followed to the Millstätter hut and also climbed our third summit, the Hochpalfennock.

On the last day of our Alpine crossing from Innsbruck to Merano, we hiked past the Mutspitz to the Hochmuth cable car station. We then took the cable car down to Dorf Tirol. Once there, after a short walk, we continued with the city bus to Merano. We then spent the day in the arcades of Merano and enjoyed the summer day. The next morning we went back to Innsbruck with the Flixbus.Conclusion for the hiking week: a very beautiful, but also demanding, hut hike with only a short intermediate transfer. Since we had to break off our stage on the 2nd day of our tour, a double stage was necessary on the penultimate day. However, this was not a problem for our hiking group. The penultimate day was challenging, also because of the altitude difference and the difficult descent from the Spronser lakes to the Bockerhütte. The ASI travel value for money for this tour is very fair and reasonable in my opinion. This was our 2nd guided crossing of the Alps with ASI and it was very good every time. Very competent hiking guides and met very nice fellow hikers.
