The route continues along the vineyard, uphill through a varied landscape, until you reach the remote village of Wildensbuch. A viewing tower with breathtaking panoramic views awaits you on the Hochwacht to the north of Wildensbuch. Passing the old schoolhouse with its charming period tower, you reach the magnificent viewing trail above the vineyards of Benken. From the popular Geggeeren excursion restaurant, you can enjoy the view over the fertile vineyards as far as Irchel and Lägeren. On a clear day, you can even see the Alps to the south-east.
