|Wutach gorge (Wutachschlucht)|
The biking route from Scahffhausen to Germany is constantly going uphill and there were challenging parts even with e-bikes. I honestly can't imagine myself doing it with the normal bike.
Our first stop was at Achdorf where we had lunch at a lovely restaurant called Scheffellinde. It has a nice terrace and the food was really good. Plus, they had an e-bike charging station where we just in case charged our batteries while having lunch. After all this uphill biking we didn't want to risk with running out of battery before getting to our hotel. After lunch we continued to our hiking destination - Wutach gorge (Wutachschlucht).
Wutach gorge is quite impressive river gorge and it's a nice hike to do even with the hot weather because most of the time you can walk in the shade. We started our hike from Wutachmühle (Wutach mill) and ended at Lotenbachklamm. The total distance of the hike is about 12.5 km and it requires quite a lot of going up and down. Occasionally you will be up on the cliffs and occasionally you walk along the river.

I wouldn't classify this hike as one of the hikes you should do in your life, but if you are in the area, it is definitely worth it. There is also a special bus for hikers (Wanderbus) that takes people from one end of the hike to another. So you can get back to your car or bikes in our case. The hike has also a website but it's entirely in German.
|Lovely houses of Donaueschigen|
On Sunday we went to see a small town Donaueschingen where river Danube gets it's beginning (or at least so they claim). It's a lovely small town with some impressive buildings. We visited the local modern art museum Art.Plus and I can really recommend this small museum. The exhibitions we saw were really well curated and the building itself is nice as well.
