This circular route is full of beautiful views. The last stretch will take you on an idyllic path lined with birch trees, the embankment of the former small railway.

Set off along a country lane with broad views and continue through a wooded area to the viewpoint “Jupp’s Höh”. Downhill through the forest, the route runs to the right, past the llama enclosure, to the main road. Now there’s an uphill section to the “Förster Blick”, a charmingly situated resting place. Follow the path through the forest to the viewpoint “Waldesruh”. A short detour takes you onto the street “im Zipfel”, past the wildlife enclosures of Thumhof. Once back on the circular trail, you will reach the “Juchhöh” viewpoint and continue your ramble over fields. After a short stretch along the road, offering a lovely view of Thum, continue on a country lane. Cross the road and follow the old local railway line back to your starting point.
