The Breuberg Castle is the Odenwald's largest and most visually striking fortification. Built on a pinnacle of Basalt and Sandstone, the castle dominates the surrounding valley with its Renaissance bastions. This hike tries to walk between the best viewpoints of the castle from a distance. The proposed route is long because I wanted to catalog the best viewpoints in one spot. Pick and choose the ones most interesting to you.
A visual overview of the main things to see in Aschaffenburg, a small city with a big castle. Despite losses in WWII, it remains one of the most beautiful cityscapes in Germany.
The center portion Main Valley, as it cuts through the Odenwald and Rhön Mountains, is an underrated region to explore. I tried a short hike in the region, but I probably would't recommend it to others.
Odenwald was once one of Europe's largest hunting preserves, the exclusive domain of Emperors and Kings. Come explore the forests and valleys of this ancient landscape.
