The Langenlois - Lengenfeld hiking route begins directly in the centre of the wine town of Langenlois. A first short stay there is already worthwhile. After all, the comprehensive range of offers in terms of wine and tourism on the site promises interesting insights - for example, in the LOISIUM WeinWelt & Vinothek or also in the Ursin Haus Vinotheque & Tourist Information. Heading West, the stage continues through forests and meadows, past imposing wine terraces. Across the Loisbach and further over the Kuckuckberg, you finally reach your destination in Lengenfeld. The magnificent parish church in the centre of the village and the fairytale-like Lengenfeld Castle provide an impressive conclusion in picturesque natural surroundings. In one of the numerous wine taverns or the Lengenfelder Kellergasse, you can also sit back, relax and enjoy yourself after a successful hike.

Author’s recommendation

Turn-by-turn directions

From the centre of Langenlois, we start in a westerly direction into Loiskandlzeile, which takes us out of town. In Zwettler Straße, we take the first footbridge over the Loisbach and walk on the right side of the stream until shortly before the Nikolauskirche church, where we turn left into the Kühsteingraben. We hike steadily and slightly uphill to the Kuckuckberg. There we reach the golf course (36-hole golf course) of Lengenfeld and bypass it on the southern side. (Attention, in the western section, the hiking trail leads down through the golf course, particular caution is advised here during golf operations).
