The rustling forests have a calming and decelerating effect in today's hectic times. The air smells wonderfully fresh and the view of the calm water of the Muldenberg dam is deeply relaxing.

Author’s recommendation

In the small mountain village of Kottenheide, the beautifully designed village square with playground invites the whole family to linger.

Destination

Tourist-Information Schöneck

Turn-by-turn directions

We start our hike at the tourist information office at the hiking and trail house in Schöneck. The path leads us over the Muldenquelle recreation area onto the sand path in the direction of Muldenberg. We follow the blue markings to the pre-barrier of the Muldenberg dam, then we turn left onto the green marked path. This path leads us to Muldenberg. There are various options for stopping off here, the dam wall can be visited or the raft area with a small playground. To continue the hike, we take the same path back, but do not turn to the pre-barrier, but stay on the green marked hiking trail towards Kottenheide. Crossing the village, we follow the yellow marking, the Kirchsteig, back to Schöneck from the end of the village.
