COME ALONG TO A LATE SUMMER (already ?) TAUNUS HIKE
**************************************************

We shall meet at 11:20 at the train station of Königstein / Schneidhain, which is the second to last stop on the line to Königstein. Blumenstr. 3, Königstein is the address across the street from the station for Navi systems.

From there we shall walk through mainly forest paths to our lunch stop at the Ristorante Merlin in the historical "Zauberberg" at Kelkheim-Ruppertshain shown in the cover photo. Zauberberg (Magic mountain) is the nickname for the building, originally a rehab facility for pulmonary patients, the name taken from the clinic in Thomas Mann's classic novel. Fabulous views over Frankfurt will be served with lunch for free. We shall sit outside, weather permitting at tables of 6.

As desert there will be more fabulous views along the way and a stopover at the beautifully decorated horse riding stable "Rettershof", the origins as a monastery dating back to the 12th century, before returning back to Schneidhain.

Meet in front of the McDonald's at Hauptbahnhof opposite track 22 to join a group ticket at substantial savings. Take the train toward Königstein on track 22 departing at 10:47 to Schneidhain. Trains back depart at :37 min. past each full hour.
