#1: The Confluence (about 5 metres away)

(visited by David Williams)

23-Aug-2015 -- This really is a very nice confluence. I did my research - and made sure I had a proper topographic map on my phone. Parked a few hundred metres short of the main "Felsenlabyrinth" parking and ambled through sunny and silent forest to the confluence - there are good tracks all the way there.

As experienced by previous visitors - GPS reception is poor at the confluence point and it took a long time to get "all the zeros".

On a whim I walked to the top of the hill - and it is clearly somewhere special - previous visitors including Goethe, Ludwig Tieck, Wilhelm Heinrich Wackenroder, plus assorted crowned heads of Europe. Great views.

Following the high ground north toward the Felsen-thingy the forest suddenly became very busy - the labyrinth, the biggest of its type in Europe, is clearly a popular tourist attraction and by coming at it "from the back side" I had avoided the €4.50 entrance fee. There is a theatre, shops, cafes, and restaurants. On the way back to my car I took an indistinct path, passing a neglected war memorial.
