Circular hiking trail in Bad Steben in the Franconian Forest

Share page with others:

One of the possible starting points along this 18.7-kilometre route is the spa park in Bad Steben, which is around a ten-minute walk from the station. The route takes you across wide-open fields to Lichtenberg, past the castle and the mining museum at the Friedrich-Wilhelm-Stollen show mine and finally leads to the wild and romantic Höllental valley. For most of the way you can follow the signs that read "Humboldtweg". If the entire route seems rather long, you can stop at either Höllental or Marxgrün and take the train back to Bad Steben. Afterwards, you can relax in the thermal baths in this Upper Franconian market town. It is considered to be one of the ten most attractive thermal baths in Germany, and has been awarded the "TouriSpo Award" for its facilities.
