Information for dog owners:
- Level of difficulty: medium, little tarmac, few narrow paths, well suited for an adventurous dog walk over uneven terrain
- Distractions: Over the course of the dream loop “Around the Enchanted Forest”, country or district roads have to be crossed from time to time, roads can sometimes be heard, but this does not detract from the hiking experience. There is a medium volume of hikers on the premium trail, so you should expect to encounter oncoming hikers.
- Water/shade: The dream loop “Around the Enchanted Forest” leads mainly through wooded terrain. Direct access to water is available to hikers and their four-legged friends at various points on the route.
- Rubbish bins/cleanliness: On the dream loop “Around the Enchanted Forest”, the principle of “what you take on the trail goes home with you” is applied as far as possible. There are only rubbish bins available at selected points. The waste from dogs and humans should not be left on/along the trail so that the enjoyment of the trail is maintained for all
