On foot we circle the crowned Eichelberg on a short and easy hike without strenuous climbs. Under mighty rock faces along to two viewpoints above the village of Busenberg.

Across the slope of the Eichelberg, the flat and entertaining path leads to the first viewpoint (with rest area) above the village. Before we continue the way around a small rock, in a northerly direction, you should take the viewpoint "Eichelbergplatte" with bench with you ( 5 min. ). It's worth it. The distant view widens there even more in an easterly direction and offers a more comprehensive panorama. 

On the same way back briefly. From now on it goes briefly flat, then mostly downhill, around an overhanging rock group, further and further down the valley. At the lowest point, a crossroads (signpost) in the Eicheltal, you branch off slightly to the right. On a wider forest path we hike first slightly uphill, then again flat and downhill around the Haukenberg.

Safety information

Despite the well-signposted trail markers along the premium hiking trails, we recommend for security reasons to always have an appropriate hiking map so that, for example when a storm occurs, you can quickly either find shelter or get out of the woods.

 

Especially in the autumn it is also important to remember that leaves lying on the ground can conceal irregularities, such as roots, rocks or holes in the path. Following storms, trees can have been uprooted or have branches hanging down. Such path impairments have to be expected   when using such trails . Especially in adverse weather conditions, it may occur that the trails and paths turn into muddy and slippery passages. Path impairments of this kind have to be expected when you go out for a hike. Not all rocks or slopes are secured with ropes or railings and sure footedness is required. Should you be of the opinion that these are not accessible to you then you should try and get around them.

Turn-by-turn directions

As a starting point we use the popular parking lot Hexenplätzel. Via the forest road, past the sports field. The entrance to the narrow rock path is not far to the right, next to the water reservoir, where a few steps to enter are waiting for us. Across the slope of the Eichelberg, the flat and entertaining path leads to the first viewpoint (with rest area) above the village. Before we continue the way around a small rock, in a northerly direction, you should take the viewpoint "Eichelbergplatte" with bench with you ( 5 min. ).It's worth it. The distant view widens there even more in an easterly direction and offers a more comprehensive panorama.  On the same way back briefly. From now on it goes briefly flat, then mostly downhill, around an overhanging rock group, further and further down the valley. At the lowest point, a crossroads (signpost) in the Eicheltal, you branch off slightly to the right. On a wider forest path we hike first slightly uphill, then again flat and downhill around the Haukenberg, back to the starting point.
