The town of Frickingen is incredibly picturesque, lying in Salem Valley between Lake Constance and Upper Linzgau. It is one of the Lake Constance region’s most important fruit-bearing locations. Frickingen is all about apples, which is why this trail has been named after them. The path is signposted with an apple symbol and runs in two loops around Frickingen and its neighborhoods – past different orchard types, particularly enticing in spring, with their abundant flowers, and in fall, when they are laden with luscious fruit.
The trail contains 18 stops at various landmarks and natural attractions, including the Lake Constance Apple Museum in Frickingen, which documents the history of orcharding, the Lohmühle tanner museum in Leustetten, the tinkerers’ workshop museum in Altheim (a must for technophiles), the Himmelreich wetland habitat, the nature studio and the natural phenomena of Silberberg region with its silver sheen and contact spring. Plenty of stunning views are just waiting to be enjoyed – from the landscape of the Linzgau all the way to the Alps.
