Hahn & Henne – Zell a. H
Who doesn’t know the bright green-yellow cups, plates and egg cups with Black Forest rooster and Black Forest hen? The friendly chicken couple will now also accompany you on the 14 kilometer long “cock and hen tour” around the Hinterhambachtal near Zell am Harmersbach. The Premium Trail and Black Forest Gourmet Trail lead in a varied way, sometimes through mossy, sometimes through sparse fir forests, along the edges of the forest, over wide meadow paths. Often the eyes wander over lonely farms, the idyllic Harmersbach and Hinterhambachtal. Would you like to enjoy the path and nature in peace? Then lace up your hiking boots during the week or even on Monday or Tuesday when the two inns Bergbauernhof and Vogt auf Mühlstein are closed.
The special thing about the rooster and hen tour: the most beautiful views are adorned with lovingly designed benches and rest areas in a rooster and hen look. From them you can enjoy the Black Forest’s cultural landscape at its best: For centuries, the farmers have created a mosaic of fields, arable land, pastures and orchards, their stately farms lie in the middle, and the wooded mountain peaks of the Harmersbach and Hinterhambach valleys rise all around. Connoisseurs will appreciate the silence of nature as much as the rustic atmosphere in the three snack bars. The highlights are the views from the plateaus over the mountains of the central Black Forest to the Alsatian Vosges.
