Description

The hike from Oberaurach to the Kelchalm.
We start in Oberaurach. The hike takes us to the district of Kochau, where you can admire very beautiful, stylish Tyrolean houses. We continue on the road to the farm 'Exenberg', after which we follow the signs for the Exenberg Alm. After a few hundred meters the alpine road ends and we continue on a mountain path towards Kelchalm. This historical building was used by the miners as a place to eat and sleep. Nowadays the Kelchalm, which belongs to the section of the German Alpine Club Bochum, is a hut wich offers hungry hikers excellent cuisine. After the break, we make our way back, which leads us past the ruins of the former stamp mill. These foundations give us an idea of ​​the heyday of mining in this area. Via the Almenweg we reach a junction that leads us towards Exenberg and from there on the well-known path back to our starting point.
