Magnificent views over the Altmühl valley, a gorge forest with numerous rock formations and one of the oldest castle complexes in Bavaria are the highlights of this tour.

At the beginning of the tour, we walk through the pretty old town of Riedenburg. Then we head uphill to the hamlet of Lintlhof, near which not only a chapel in the forest awaits us, but also a magnificent vantage point over the Altmühl valley with the Dichterfelsen (Poet's Rock). From the rock we continue our way through meadows and forests and finally reach the Klamm and Kastelhänge nature reserve. A path, secured in places, leads us through the reserve's magnificent gorge forest, covered with ferns and interspersed with rocks, to another vantage point. We then descend into the Altmühl valley, cross the Main-Danube Canal and, on the opposite side of the valley, climb the striking limestone rock on which Prunn Castle looms. After a guided tour of the castle, we continue through the Prunner Berg nature reserve with its species-rich rough grasslands to the overhanging rocky roof of Friedrichsruh, through which difficult climbing routes lead. From here, a beautiful slope path takes us

Haben die Tour im Herbst 2017 gemacht. Absolut zu empfehlen!! Abwechslungsreich und spannend. Von der Länge und Strecke für geübte Wanderer gut machbar. Insgesamt waren wir sehr positiv überrascht. Für jemanden, der extreme Höhenangst hat, sind ca. 15 min. Strecke nach dem mittleren Teil des südlichen Routenabschnittes problematisch. Unser Bekannter hatte dort Probleme. Für meine Frau und mich war dieser Abschnitt dagegen eines der Highlights.
