Hi everybody!

For the second "Wanderung" of this season we propose you an absolute highlight of the Fränkische Schweiz. Starting from the parking place of Wiesenttal's railway station, we're going uphill to enjoy the view of the Wiesent valley. Soon we're reaching the Binghöhle, which we propose to visit. If not interested, you can wait outside, duration of guided tour is 40 min. The path goes on at constant altitude up to the Streitbug ruins, which we can admire while having lunch. Afterwards we walk up and down a series of 3 hills, with beautiful views and other caves which we can admire from the outside. Near the end come the ruins of Burg Neideck, a romantic highlight which has been visited by poets and painters for centuries. From there it's only 3 km downhill to the starting point.
