Your hike in the Kaiserstuhl leads you from Breisach to Bötzingen. You leave tranquil Breisach am Rhein with your experienced guide. Your path first leads through flat terrain with many orchards in the direction of Ihringen: depending on the season, you can watch the asparagus and strawberry harvest or marvel at the blossoming apple, pear and cherry trees.
Ihringen am Kaiserstuhl is considered the warmest village in Germany. Here we leave the plain and walk through the vineyards that benefit from the warm climate. Wine connoisseurs will come across well-known names such as the Ihringen Winklerberg. From the Kreuzbuck you can enjoy a great view over the Rhine plain.
You continue hiking at an altitude of 300 to 375 meters before descending into the Liliental with your guide. On the way you will pass orchid fields and redwoods. In 1897 Lilienhof Castle was built on the site, which has since been demolished. The complex now consists of the former courtyard with a central old fountain, the former main building, called Schlößle, was renovated in 1980. There are rooms of the forest administration, a lecture hall and a gastronomic operation.
The Liliental is crisscrossed with numerous botanical paths. Specially created orchid trails offer the opportunity to find numerous orchids and other types of orchids from April to mid-June.
On one of these paths, the path then leads uphill to the Gagenhardt and on to the Vogelsangpass. On the Vogelsang Pass you have a great view of the Upper Rhine Plain and the Black Forest to the east. To the west you can look inside the Kaiserstuhl: Altvogtsburg and the Badberg with its dry grassland are clearly visible.
The path then leads down to Bötzingen, which is at an altitude of 192 meters. Today, Bötzingen is a typical wine village in the Rhine valley. It was first mentioned in a document in 769 when it was donated to the Lorsch Abbey in the Lorsch Codex. Oberschaffhausen first appeared in the 12th century when Pope Eugene III. confirmed his possessions to the monastery of St. Ulrich in the Black Forest in 1143. In 1838, the independent towns of Bötzingen and Oberschaffhausen merged to form the municipality of Bötzingen. Your hike ends at the train station.
