Weiherplatz Bad Griesbach

Turn-by-turn directions

The starting point of the pleasure tour is the Wiesensteig portal at the hiking car park "Weiherplatz" in Bad Peterstal-Griesbach (Bad Griesbach district, towards Höhengasthaus Herbstwasen). The path initially leads a few meters down from the Weiherplatz parking lot to the pond. There you hike to the right at the footbridge of the old pond, along the Wild Rench, past small waterfalls and idyllic resting places, up to the Fischfelsenhütte. The path now meanders through the forest, a wonderful source of shade in summer, all the way to the "Renchtalhütte", which invites hikers to rest. A wonderful view of the surroundings opens up on the cozy terrace. It then continues above the animal enclosure

Dit is een zeer mooie afwisselingsrijke wandeling waar voor toch wel enige conditie nodig is. Hier en daar zitten er best wel pittige stukken in. Bij ons was het natuurlijk wel een vrij warme dag waardoor de vrij steile klim na de bierbronnen dubbel zo lastig lijkt. Maar de tour is een aanrader.

Anfang sehr schön, der letzte Aufstieg ist etwas eintönig. Besser dicht anziehen, hatte hinterher mehr als 10 Zecken

Sehr schöner und abwechslungsreicher Weg. Teilweise im Wald, am Wasser entlang, am Waldrand. Immer wieder herrlich Ausblicke. Tolle Einkehrmöglichkeiten und viele schöne Rastmöglichkeiten. Sehr zu empfehlen.
