We'll also visit the tower (open until October) and have also views on a famous "Viaduc", watersprings, etc...

On pleasant hiking trails we experience the landscape of the Middle Black Forest and come by springs and rocks to an old court mill.

Hornberg, the town of "Hornberger shooting", is located in the middle Black Forest on the German Clock Street. High above the Gutachtal, the Schwarzwaldbahn passes the village on a viaduct.

The 19 m high tower of the former castle Hornberg on the Schlossberg dominates the city as soon as we arrive by train.

The three long-distance trails of the Schwarzwaldverein come together in Hornberg: Westweg, Mittelweg and Querweg Lahr - Rottweil. As a local circular trail, the Hornberg Panorama Trail runs in a wide arc around the Schlossberg. On shaded forest paths, he always offers views into the Gutach Valley. Several rest areas and barbecues invite you on the way.

Bring lunch box, good hiking boots.

Cancellation only in case of heavy rain or snow.
