The Otzberg fortress was an outpost that traded hands between the Electoral Palatinate and Hessen. Though besieged many times, it was spared the targeted destruction faced by other regional castles. Today it houses a small museum with dramatic views from the surrounding country. This hike is about visiting the castle by public transport and collecting some of the views.
How to Get Here:
- The hike starts at the small forest station of Groß-Umstadt Wiebelsbach
