The "Äußerer Ringweg" Schöneck is a classic circular route through nature and small villages with partly breathtaking panoramic views. It is signposted in both directions with its own path markings as "Äußerer Ringweg".

This hiking trail leads along evergreen valleys and forests, crosses small streams and meadows and inspires with fantastic views as far as Bohemia, Bavaria and Thuringia. Restaurants, cafes, a small leisure facility at the Haselmühle, the popular climbing forest and a Kneipp facility touch this wonderful hiking trail either directly or just a few meters sideways.
