The route travels over winding rivers and through beautiful countrysides. You can take relaxing breaks along the way, enjoying food and beverages at the Renchtalhütte, the Griesbach water station and the Höhengasthaus Herbstwasen.
You will begin the tour at the Wiesensteigportal of the hiking car park Weiherplatz in the town district of Bad Griesbach. After reaching the dam of the old pond system, you will turn right and head to the streambed of the Wilde Rench. You will cross the Wilde Rench several times before reaching the Fischfelsenhütte – Wiesensteigportal “Renchtalhütte”. Not far from this portal, you will see the hut that goes by the same name. It is the perfect place to take a rustic break. From the “Renchtalhütte” portal, you will head downhill, walking past the Oberkircher Weinbrunnen fountain in the historic Brunnenhäusle until you reach the Haus Wilde Rench. You can refresh yourself here at the Griesbach water station or treat yourself to some home-distilled liqueur. You will then cross the street and change the side of the valley. From here, you will begin your return trip to the Weiherplatz starting point – a section of the hike that includes some steep climbs and a refreshing break at the Alpirsbach “Bierbrunnen” (beer fountain) before continuing to the Herbstwasen mountain inn (refreshment stop) and from there down to the Rench bank.
