Information in brief


Schenkenzell is located in the Kinzig valley in the Central Black Forest. There are more than 300 km of well sign-posted hiking trails in unspoiled countryside in Schenkenzell. A popular hiking destination is the nostalgic monastery in the district of Wittichen. A 7 km long geological information trail can also be found in Wittichen, which documents the history of mining. With a little bit of luck, you can still find minerals today.
