The Ehrbachklamm DreamLoop or the Ehrbachklamm Dream Loop + Schöneck Loop.

Theshorter route is 8.5 km long and has a cumulative elevationgain of 590 metres.

 

The longer route – Ehrbachklamm DreamLoop + Schöneck Loop – is 14.8 km long with a cumulativeelevation gain of 840 metres.The final decision as to whether you want to follow the shorteror longer trail has to be taken after 5km, once you have reachedthe Schöneck and Rauschenburg lookouts. We recommendthe slightly longer trail, as you can never get enoughof the Ehrbachklamm Dream Loop with its scenic beauty andobjects of cultural and historical interest.

You should allow around 6 hours. It will take a little longer ifyou avail yourself of the hospitality of the Daubisberger Millin the Ehrbachklamm, or the Tenne Inn in Oppenhausen. Thebest way to experience the beauty of the Ehrbachklamm andthe rippling stream with its waterfalls is to follow the DreamLoop in an anticlockwise direction upstream.

Sturdy footwearis essential.

 

Certified by the German Hiking Institute, the EhrbachklammDream Loop achieved 96 adventure points.

Wir sind schon etliche Traumpfade/Pfädchen/Schleifen etc gewandert- aber dieser hier ist der mit Abstand schönste Wanderweg unter 10 Kilometern. Absolut verdiente 5 Sterne! Es wird einem alles geboten, was man sich für eine abwechslungsreiche Tour wünscht: weite Wiesen, tiefe Täler, schroffe Felsen, Wasser, Wasserfälle, Gestein, alpine Landschaften, Wald, romantische Pfädchen, lockeres Wandern bis hin zu knackigen Anstiegen, die einen schwitzen lassen. Bänke und sehr schön gestaltete Rastmöglichkeiten sind reichlich vorhanden. Dennoch ist eine gute Grundkondition, anständiges Schuhwerk und Trittfestigkeit nötig. Einige Abschnitte sind schon anspruchsvoll. Es wird jedenfalls nicht eine Minute langweilig! Das hat man wirklich selten. Ganz herzlichen Dank an die Menschen, die sich kümmern und dafür sorgen, dass dieser tolle Wanderweg überhaupt möglich ist!
