The city in the forest - here it lives up to its name, because the Schorrberg consists almost entirely of forest, through which the M1 runs. A great thing in summer, because numerous green spaces provide shade and invite you to pause. But it's also sporty, because the Schorrberg was originally a pure ski slope, but today it has a second, fast-paced life in summer - as a downhill course with really well laid-out trails, but which don't get in the way of the hiker.

 

Author’s recommendation

In summer, on selected dates, watch the downhill riders on their speedy descent.
