Europäischen Wasserscheideweg (European Watershed trail)

Unterbreitenau is located near the European Watershed trail

This route runs like an arc through the natural park, crossing repeatedly points from which the water flows into the Black Sea and into the North Sea. The ridge of the watershed allows beautiful views onto the rolling landscape. It is 98 km from the start in Ansbach to the end in Schnelldorf. The natural trail leads through forests, over lush meadows and dry grassland. You need sturdy walking boots.

The rolling hills and its trail simply invite you to enjoy nature. The hiking-path is marked. The European Watershed Path is quality-sealed: “Qualitätsweg Wanderbares Deutschland”
