Wolfsschlucht & Margarethenschlucht – 14 km – Best Hike in the Area – FREE EVENT

Picture by courtesy of Nils Manuel Mora.

This is one of my favourite hikes ever.

Event fee: free

This is one of the most scenic hikes I have ever been to in the Heidelberg area. GORGE OF THE WOLF and the GORGE OF MARGARET. It is said that the first one got its name because the Odenwald’s last wolf was shot there.

We will meet at Zwingenberg Bahnhof where we will start our hike. First we will walk to Zwingenberg Castle and from there up to the Wolfschlucht, cross over through the forest to Neckargerach where we will visit the even more scenic Margarethenschlucht. From there we walk back to Neckargerach.

We will pass by running water, climb over fallen trunks, admire the waterfalls and enjoy a landscape I’m really looking forward to. It can be a bit slippery when wet so make sure you wear good hiking boots or footwear you really feel comfortable in. It is also said that in the worst case there are some spots where we can get our feet wet or pass by narrow pathways where we have to hold on to an attached cable or rope.

Here is the video from one of last years events to the gorges:
