Description

The tour starts at the car park for hikers  "F" at Kaltenbronn

Highlight of the roundtrip is just to the beginning the view from the "Hohloh" tower, which you´ll reach across an boardwalk through the marshland. By climbing up the tower you pass the 1000 metre-mark above sea level and you will be rewarded by a magnificent view over the valleys of Rhein and Murg. Under conditions of clear view you even could see the Vosges and the Alps.

Further on you pass the protected forest area. This means without human intervention the forest developes itself back to a primeval forest.       A funny sidestep to the "Jägerschaukel" is worth it. From a wood swing you have a marvellous view over the places Bad Wildbad and Dobel. Afterwards you walk through the core of the tour, the wild sea moor. Here you can get your own memorable moment in the midst of a fascinating scenery. Birch trees, mosses and the mystic moor - be whisked away to Southern Finland!
