Loop trail past the Rannatal Nature Reserve, Falkenstein Castle Ruins and Altenhof Castle.

We start in Pfarrkirchen and walk southwards past the elementary school. We cross the golf course to get into the forest. On country lanes and roads we get to Hofkirchen, where we take a right turn. We walk towards “Neubau”. After the last farm we hike downhill to Niederranna through the forest. In Niederranna we hike along the Danube towards Rannamühl (starting place: Rannamühl). There we take a right turn into the Ranntal Nature Reserve and hike then uphill towards Falkenstein Castle Ruins. We leave the forest and get to Altenhof (Altenhof Castle). Past Wehrbach we get back to Pfarrkirchen.
