Hiking Campout

Our April hiking campout took us to the town of Grossbottwar.

The younger scouts went on a 5 mile hike and conquered an old tower, went up and down vineyards and got to see an old mill in operation before enjoying some ice cream on the medieval town square of Grossbottwar.

Our senior scouts set out for an 8 mile hike that included 345 meters of climbing up the hills and 345 meters down. We enjoyed the view down from the Lichtenberg castle and tasted some freshly baked German bread.
