Traditional May Hike of the FMG with the American Students

 

to the Berglusthaus Horben

 

 

The meeting point for the hike to the Lusthaus is at 10h25 at the final stop of bus line 21 Horben-Rathaus.  

 

(By public transport: From Freiburg to Horben, take the streetcar 2 to Güntersthal at 9h57 at Bertoldsbrunnen to the final stop Dorfstraße. There, at 10h15, take bus 21 in the direction of Horben. Please note: there is only one bus to Horben every hour).  

 

From the town hall Horben we hike through the Black Forest towards St. Ulrich to the "37th Maihock" at the Berglusthaus with the Trachtenkapelle St. Ulrich and the "d'Ulricher Musikanten". Remember good shoes and warm clothes. The hut is located at over 900 m; it is sometimes still fresh there.  

 

Around noon we will have lunch at the Berglusthaus. AYF students are invited for lunch. In the Lusthaus there is typical barbecue food but also salads and a cake buffet. Walk back to Horben until about 15h00.
