71km today. I started off quite late today, and began by following the Altmuehl, to Altmuehlsee. After this, I was following what I think is a water supply canal. At one point this disappears into a tunnel (built in the 1980s), and the path goes through the woods.
Eventually I joined the Brombachsee – this is a much larger lake, surrounded by pine forests. It reminded me a lot of Loch Morlich (but without the mountains in the distance)
I stopped off for lunch and a swim in the lake. The water was lovely and warm and clear.
After a while I joined an old railway line, the Gredl Radweg. They’d left various bits of signaling and other equipment in situ, with explanatory boards about what they were.
Eventually I reached Greding, where I decided to stop for the night. Unfortunately the campsite isn’t great. It’s close to the motorway, so quite noisy, and seems to mostly be for campervans stopping for the night (I guess en route to the Alps).
