A nice hike on forest roads and hiking trails with plenty of places to stop for a snack.  

Author’s recommendation

Don´t forget to stop for a snack at Kathrin's Buschenschenke - try the bread with bacon and ricotta!

Now you walk over beautiful meadows going slightly downhill , passing a single farm next to the trench. After the crossing you will reach Kathrin 's Buschensschenke (a small tavern) . Here trail no. 43 branches off downhill , which you have to follow to Unterberg .
