0 km The starting point is at the Hubertushof inn. Hike a short distance uphill on the asphalt road to the village of Flatting, then turn left and hike along the field path towards the forest and past a wooden barn. On the left of the field path was a Reichsarbeiterdienst camp from 1938-1945. In 1945, the wooden barrack camp was set on fire by Allied tank guns. At the wayside shrine of St. Christopher, the path leads steeply uphill towards the forest.

Then follow the asphalt road for a short distance until the fork on the right into the field path.
Look out for the turn-off for the Vogelstimmenweg (bird song trail). Continue to the right across a short stretch of meadow towards the forest. At the end of the forest you reach the ...
