Chestnuts owe their rediscovery and their development into a trend product not least to increased health awareness. They are generally regarded not only as tasty but also as extremely rich in nutrients. The varied trail leads the hiker through the vineyards and chestnut forest around the wine village of Kesten.Insights into the hiking tour:A beautiful and easy circular hike on good paths. Starting from Kesten, the trail leads at the beginning through the vineyards (on asphalt) to the Roman acidulous spring. Then it goes along the chestnut forest towards Osann-Monzel and finally back towards Kesten. There are no rest stops along the way, so it is best to buy backpack provisions in advance and eat them at the acid well with barbecue area and benches.
There is no supermarket or village shop in Kesten. For a rest - especially beautiful in the chestnut forest - there are, however, shopping and catering facilities in the neighbouring villages.
