Hike around Hemsbach on Blütenweg and Burgensteig

One of our members suggested a hike around Hemsbach, a town north of Weinheim. The hike featured two popular trails, the Blütenweg and the Burgensteig.

We passed a place of pilgrimage (Wallfahrtsstätte) in the forest, visited the stone mare (Steinerner Gaul), the Waldnerturm (stone tower and viewpoint) and the Jewish Cemetery.

The area around the Waldnerturm was very busy because there is a parking lot nearby. Lots of families had taken the opportunity to go for a picnic on this beautiful summer day.

All around we had beautiful views – first the vineyards, then the hills of the Odenwald.
My cake today was again homemade – a Tyrolean nut cake with lots of chocolate.
