Ascension Day Hike 2024

In summary the comments were: great conversation, wonderful sunshine, a nice mix of people and a chance to go beyond the normal Sunday “hello… Good-bye” … but the walk was exhausting.
We set off from St. Catherine’s, to the sound of bells being rung for the Old Catholic Ascension Day Service. We climbed out of Stuttgart to Birkenkopf – a memorial constructed of the rubble cleared from Stuttgart after World War II. After lunch it was on through the woods, past the wild boar, to Schloss Solitude, ice creams and discussion on the lawn.
