A hike above Furrach with a magnificent view of Donnersbach. A path along forest and meadows that is perfect for taking a deep breath. A pleasure at any time of day. 
An easy circular trail with a wonderful view in the direction of Planneralm and the Donnersbachtal. The place with hut and fish ponds literally invites you to rest. A hike, partly on forest and forest paths, which is well suited for the whole family and incidentally has one or the other small brook ready, which ripples with joy before itself.

More information

From Trautenfels or Wörschach leave the B320 in the direction of Donnersbach. In the village of Donnersbach drive approx. 4 km in the direction of Planneralm until you reach the Ertlschweigerhaus.
From the Ertlschweigerhaus, the path leads in the direction of Furrach on the old Planneralm road. Walk along this road for about 800 meters until you reach a bend, where you turn left according to the signs. Continue straight ahead. Pass the yellow house and after a short while you will see a wooden stadel on the right side. Take your time to sit on the bench in front of it and enjoy the view.

Back on the path, after about 500 meters you come to the next bend. Here you turn left onto the forest road. A few steps later, at the bench, you will be offered a magnificent view of the Donnersbach Valley. The path continues to the next signpost, where you turn left onto a narrow forest path, downhill to a hut and the fish ponds. A wonderful place to rest again before you continue downhill along the meadow path and come back to the starting point.

Way number: 6

Take a break a the one or other bench on the way.
