Hiking from Waldenbuch to the hidden Lake Schönbuch

Hiking from Waldenbuch to the hidden Lake Schönbuch

Hi guys! Moritz and I are determined to make the most of this beautiful, sunny autumn, hiking-wise. We like the area called Schönbuch, a national park south of Stuttgart, a lot. So we checked my dad’s guide book “Ausflugsziel Schönbuch” and decided to hike from Waldenbuch to the hidden Schönbuchsee (Lake Schönbuch).

Hi guys! One of the great things about Stuttgart is that it is located close to a number of awesome destinations for a weekend trip.

Hiking the 2nd part of Möhringen Witch Trail

Hiking the 2nd part of Möhringen Witch Trail

Hi guys! After we had enjoyed the first part of the Möhringer Hexenweg (Möhringen Witch Trail) lately, Moritz and I decided to hike the second part, as well. Again, we took the hiking book Stuttgarter Wanderbuch, written by my dad, Dieter Buck, with us. However, we didn’t follow it’s instructions at the beginning: We did not start at U-Bahn station SSB Zentrum, as instructed in the guide book, we took the train to Fasanenhof and began our hike from there – sorry dad!
