This hike takes you around Gornsdorf, through woods and meadows with exquisite views.

The tour begins at the Naturbad Gornsdorf (outdoor pool) and leads uphill through a stretch of forest. At the crossroads and at the Lohhütte hut, follow the path to the right until a magnificent view of the valley opens up. You will come to the church, where various varieties of rhododendron bloom at the cemetery in late spring. Continue on the left above the houses and back into the valley. After crossing the road, the path leads through the Graubner Gut farm (with farm shop) back onto a country lane, which you follow on the right. Once again, your gaze is drawn to the sights below you. Finally, on your left, you will reach the turn-off to the “Goethehain”, an idyllic resting place. At the Glückauf hut, the path leads back into the valley. Passing the Volkshaus restaurant, return to your starting point via Badstrasse.
