Stele 10: Bosket Chapel We continue walking southwards a small stretch along the trail on which we just came, but now stay straight ahead and walk to the left at the next fork in the trail. We still keep to the left and come back to the forest road from which we branched off beforehand. We follow the forest road to the right for approx. 5 km in the direction of Eschenlohe. Here we hike through forested terrain, which is very pleasant on particularly hot summer days. Outside of Eschenlohe we come upon a road and follow it to the left in the direction of the “Asamklamm” gorge. After a few hundred metres we follow the sign on the right “Asamklammsteg” (“Asamklamm footbridge”). On a narrow iron footbridge we cross this impressive gorge, which water cascading from the mountainside carved in the rock over the course of thousands of years. On the other end of the footbridge we follow a small path. Where the path meets a trail, we walk to the right and branch off to the right again shortly after that. Now a steep path leads us in switchbacks and over several steps directly inside the gorge. Depending on the time of year and weather, here we experience a roaring torrent or also only a few idyllic puddles. Another stele is waiting for us here next to two benches. Caution: during the winter, especially with fresh snow, it can be that the steep path inside the gorge is not walkable! Then we stay on the upper trail!
Stele 11: Asamklamm Now we follow the footpath on the edge of the gorge. The trail eventually forks towards the exit. We walk up over a few steps, follow the path and shortly after that reach Alpenhotel Wengererhof with opportunity for overnight accommodation (closed on Sunday from midday; tel. 0 88 24 / 9 20 30; www.alpenhotel-wengererhof.de). At the level of the hotel we turn to the right into a meadow path, walk through a gate and arrive at the Eschenlaine stream again. We follow the field path to the left towards the centre of the village, first reach Asamklammstraße, then Krottenkopfstraße, and finally cross the Loisach bridge. In the centre of Eschenlohe we find further opportunities for overnight accommodation as well as various opportunities for refreshments and shopping.
