Tour Bad Teinach-Zavelstein – Black Forest Nature Park Central/North


Our partner Alpirsbacher Klosterbräu starts the hiking season with you and presents you with another hiking tip in the northern Black Forest. On this beautiful AugenBlick tour in Bad Teinach-Zavelstein you can enjoy the wonderful views over Rötenbach, Emberg, Zavelstein and the Teinachtal. At higher altitudes, the view stretches across the Heckengäu to the Swabian Jura, and on a clear day to Hohenzollern Castle.

One of the many beautiful hiking trails in Bad Teinach-Zavelstein

From the starting point, the AugenBlick location in Zettelberg, you follow the old wine route past the century lime tree (natural monument) to Emberg. From there you can make a short detour to the Zavelstein viewpoint. If the visibility is good, you can see the Swabian Alb in the distance and nearby the Zavelstein town with the old Staufer castle ruins. You hike through the village of Emberg in the direction of the mountain hut. From here you have a view of Zavelstein and the valleys. After the mountain hut it goes a little later in the dense forest over narrow zigzag paths down into the Rötenbachtal. The picturesque root path along the stream ends in a steep footpath, at the end of which you are rewarded with a great view of the Zavelstein castle ruins.

Along the Rötenbach and the Wolfsschlucht, the path leads uphill again, via the Schlossberghütte, which invites you to stop off, to Zavelstein. A detour through the historic town with the Zavelstein castle ruins is definitely worthwhile, before continuing via the “Spinnerin Kreuz” to the nature park host Wanderheim Zavelstein. The further route to the starting point in Rötenbach runs through the Zavelsteiner Krokuswiesen nature reserve and forms a successful conclusion to this circular tour.

The circular tour with a medium level of difficulty is 15.5 kilometers, a good four hours long and climbs 369 meters in altitude. Also look at the videos on signage and the network of paths from the Black Forest Association.
