From Heiligenstadt to Muggendorf

Another rather hilly leg takes you on to Franconian Switzerland. Today's walk is packed with brilliant spots for views that you can take from bizarre rocky hills overlooking beautiful valleys. Starting at Heiligenstadt the path at first follows the Leinleiter valley.







At the Hummerstein viewing point, the views of the neighbouring valley are extraordinarily nice. The Franconia Way passes the ruins of Streitburg and Neideck castles which keep guard high above the valley of the river Wiesent before it descends to Streiberg.





After another steep climb the way passes the wooded heights above the river before a final passage downhill will take you to Muggendorf on the banks of the river Wiesent.
