This hike with great views to the white fir tower on Buchkopf mountain right above Oppenau-Maisach is a trip to enjoy and shouldn’t be left out by hiking friends when visiting the Renchtal.
Distance 5 km
A beautiful and conditionally simple circular trail from “Rohrenbacher Eck” (near Renchtal hut) along the “Renchtalsteig” uphill to the “Buchkopftower Oppenau”.
The hike largely runs along wide forrest paths and is also suited for families with children.
