In the second section, things are much more relaxed, and you have enough time to enjoy the landscape and make a detour to Burg Reinhardstein or the lake at Robertville, where water lovers gather on the beaches in summer.

Author’s recommendation

A visit to Reinhardstein Castle is always worthwhile;
