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.

Meinen VorrednerInnen kann ich mich nur anschließen! Ein wundervoller Wanderweg in fantastischer Natur! Ruhebänke ohne Ende, Ausblicke in die Geschichte, Pfade und Steige mit leichtem Kletteranteil --- einfach toll!!! Was mich am allermeisten fasziniert hat, sind die vielen Insekten (besonders die Schmetterlinge), die so zahlreich um mich herumflatterten. Admiral, kleiner Fuchs, Tagpfauenauge, Kohlweisling, Satyr Komma Schmetterling, Waldbrettspiel, Großes Ochsenauge, der Kaisermantel (Schmetterling des Jahres 2022), und, und, und, ... wenn sie sich doch nur besser fotografieren ließen! Liebevolle Ecken des Waldkindergartens, bestens ausgeschildert, Möglichkeit die Runde zu verlängern. Vielen Dank für diese tolle Traumschleife! Wiederholung unbedingt, dann vielleicht mit Ergänzung der Schöneckschleife. Eine Bitte an alle WandererInnen: Nehmt Euren Müll, egal, ob Verpflegungsreste, Zigarettenkippen, Hundehäufchen, Masken, Tücher für das "Geschäftle" oder Sonstiges wieder mit nach Hause. Es ist sehr erschreckend und traurig wie vermüllt die Natur auf und an den Wanderwegen geworden ist. - Der Natur zuliebe! -
