Turn-by-turn directions

Cross the road at the hiking car park and start the tour at the Panoramaweg which runs on the same leg as the Weidelehrpfad and the Schluchtensteig Schwarzwald. At the signpost “Hohrütte”, the trail parts from the two other trails, leading straight on directly to the Engländerhütte. From   here, you descend to Vorderibach and hike along a short leg on the district road along the Brandweiher. On the next road you turn right and after passing some houses, turn again right and you are back on the trail which now leads through pastures.   

You soon reach the nature reserve „Kirchspielwald-Ibacher Moos“ and the trail now crosses the Klusenmoos (please stay on the trail and thus protect the moor vegetation!). Turning right, you reach the Dukatenwaldweg which runs between the Hochtal and the Fohrenmoos. Passing the western Unteribach, you arrive at the Schwandwaldweg which must be followed until you reach the Kohlhütteplatz. You are now in the heart of the nature reserve “Kohlhütte-Lampenschweine” which is crossed by the national road L150.

Now turn right and follow the road on a short leg in direction of St. Blasien before you continue the tour on the signposted trail between the two roads. Here, the Panoramaweg opens to its most beautiful part, taking a wide berth around Oberibach and offering phantastic views of the alpine upland and the Swiss Alps in the south and the Feldberg area in the north.

The starting point is now approaching and you just follow the signposted trail to Schorrmättle.

Sehr geehrte Frau Schuster-Stich, letzten Freitag sind wir den wunderschönen Ibacher Panoramaweg gewandert. Der Vollständigkeit halber möchten wir darauf hinweisen, dass die Lageeinzeichnung und GPX Koordinaten von zwei Wegepunkten nicht richtig sind (siehe Foto). Natürlich findet man das Frieneskreuz auch ohne Koordinaten! richtige Koordinaten: Ibacher Friedenskreuz N47.74456° E8.07285° Aussichtpunkt Lampenschweine N47.75043° E8.05993°

Abwechslungsreiche, nicht allzu anstrengende Wanderung, die besonders im Herbst schön ist. Wir hatten das Glück, auf dem ersten Teil Sonne und Alpensicht zu haben. Besonders der Ausblick vom Friedenskreuz ist fantastisch. Der Rückweg durch das Moor und den Wald war dafür im Schatten.
