General information

Package tripinfo

First we walk under the railroad, past the Ebinger company (ceramics), to Haus Lindenbach (BSW). There we walk on the Kaiser- Wilhelm I Promenadenweg and after a short while turn right onto a steep mountain path (5 minutes very steep) in the direction of Malberg. Now it goes up in serpentines to the Adolphstempel. After a short rest and admiring the view, we continue towards Malberg (350 m). In serpentines it goes higher and higher. After two more beautiful viewpoints, the view becomes more and more clear and imposing, we continue to the summit.

At the top we see the abandoned mountain station of the old Malbergbahn (1887-1979).

Nearby is also a stone lookout tower (built in 1848). If you want you can climb it, the view over the whole town is fantastic.

After a short rest we hike back down into the valley. Again we go downhill in serpentines, this time on an old tarred path. In the process, we also cross the rails of the old Malbergbahn.

Now we pass the Henriettensäule (part of the Romantikrunde). From there it is not far to the restored valley station of the old Malbergbahn. There we look at the technical monument from the outside.

Now we walk together on the Kaiser Wilhelm I path back to the starting point.
