Auszug von der Etappe 1
Starting point of the "Kinzigtäler Jakobusweg" is Lossburg.
The hike begins at Jakobusstein (666 m) in the main street of Lossburg (near the Jakobus church in Lossburg) - leads through Schloßstrasse, Schloßring, Plattenweg, through the former castle complex (now miniature golf), over the country road towards the swimming pool. We cross the river “Kinzig” on a narrow bridge and walk along the river to the Kinzig bridge, where we turn right shortly before (direction inn ”Mittlere Mühle”) in Ehlenbogen. Before the Juntlenhof we keep left, cross a bridge and then walk right downhill on a path along the main road. At the bus stop we cross the main road. We follow a forest path uphill until we pass under the railway line. Then we turn right.
After leaving the forest we enjoy a wonderful view over the Ehlenboger valley, the railway, the main road and the Kinzig. At the Erlenhof inn we can already see the residential areas of Alpirsbach.
At the railway viaduct, the path leads us along the main road to the monastery church (441 m).
Monastery church in Alpirsbach
We walk past the Museum of City History (on the left we see the Alpirsbach monastery brewery) and turn into Krähenbadstrasse in front of the hotel Löwen-Post. We pass the glassblowing workshop, cross the railway line and the main road (B294) and reach the small town of Alpirsbach. Before the Bertishof we turn left and follow a small trail to the "Hanging Stone" (granite stone / natural monument). At Rinkenbächle we walk over two tunnels to Schlößle. After a gentle descent to Stockhof we enjoy a beautiful view of Schenkenzell (360 m) with its baroque church St. Ulrich, which we reach in a few minutes.
