Querweg Gengenbach - Schapbach - Alpirsbach by Jana
Yesterday · Community
Im Mai 2022 bin ich mit zwei Freundinnen den Querweg von Gengenbach nach Alpirsbach gelaufen. Ein echter Traum! Wir sind bloß wenigen anderen Wanderern begegnet und konnten völlig ungestört wandern, die Strecke ist alles andere als überlaufen. Die Etappen waren länger bzw. aufgrund der Anstiege anstrengender als gedacht, die 16 bzw. 20 km für uns völlig ausreichend als Tagesetappen. Landschaftlich ist der Querweg wunderschön, es bieten sich immer wieder famose Ausblicke, und man läuft viel auf kleinen und naturnahen Wegen / Pfaden. Lediglich die Beschilderung ließ vorwiegend am zweiten Tag stellenweise zu wünschen übrig, zweimal haben wir uns verlaufen. Die Karte, die wir in Gengenbach zu Beginn der Tour in der Touristeninformation gekauft hatten, war somit hilfreich. Übernachtet haben wir in der ersten Nacht in "The Moosbach Garden", eine außergewöhnlich idyllisch gelegene Unterkunft mit ausgezeichneter Küche. In der zweiten Nacht haben wir im Adler in Schapbach geschlafen, gegessen haben wir im Gasthof Sonne, ebenfalls beides zu empfehlen. Vielen Dank, Gunter Schön, für die hilfreiche Beschreibung der einzelnen Etappen der Tour!

The Wiesensteig in Bad Peterstal-Griesbach by Kati

Mir hat die Runde sehr gefallen. Die hier angegebene Gehzeit ist sehr üppig bemessen. Wald und Wiesen wechseln sich ab. Der Abschnitt an der Wilden Rench entlang ist toll. Die Höhenmeter sind angenehm verteilt.
