This leisurely tour connects the multiple award-winning flower village of St. Kathrein with the theater village of Brandlucken.
A mountain village straight out of a picture book: the highly decorated flower village of St. Kathrein am Offenegg is enthroned high on the rock and is visible from afar. Around the village, several destinations can be visited at once, such as the Graf noble distillery or the magnificent Sulamith Garden by Sissy Sichart.
The Bärenrunde starts in the center of the village and leads at the beginning and again at the end along the "Vogelbeer-Panoramaweg" with its resting places and information boards. Partly across meadows, partly through the forest, the trail leads without any major inclines over to the Brandlucken. The first thing you see is the large open-air theater, which is used by the Huab'n Theater for its performances in the summer. Right next to it, inns invite you to stop for a bite to eat.
The way back leads mainly through the forest and past several crossroads down to the "Zeil" road. At the end, you should make a round through the village and enjoy the rich flower decorations.
