As per suggestion of an outdoor blog (outdoormaedchen.de) we decided to stop over in Calw for this little hiking trip on our way towards Bavaria. We were spoiled with beautiful sunshine and the lushest green mother nature can offer. The Xanderklinge trek leads you through some glowing yellow rape fields and some apple trees into the forest. The Xanderklinge is a small creek with a little stream making its way through the jungle-like vegetation. It is one of the few places in Germany where not everything is neat and tidy but nature reigns. You make your way over rocks and fallen trees and climb up a few slippery rocks with a rope, all the while admiring the lush green that is so abundant around you.
I am not sure if the pictures do it justice, since I am still struggling with taking pictures in the forest, the light coming in from all angles is still challenging.
So I can only invite you to make a little weekend trip out there yourself and enjoy the beautiful scenery with your own eyes ;-)
For more detailed information on the tour, Martin will share the details on his blog (martin-outdoor.de).
