My second walk, on Wednesday 10 October, was an interesting one. I caught the train to Efringen-Kirchen and walked up through the vineyards, passed the huge chalk quarry on the left, reached FC Huttingen's picturesque football ground up on the plateau, then turned west, went through a wood before reappearing above Isteiner Klotz, heading down through the Isteiner Kirchenberg vineyards above the village of Istein, and finishing at Istein train station.

Before the ban on taking liquids in hand baggage on planes, I often used to bring home bottles of Isteiner Kirchberg Gutedel back to Blighty to enjoy en famille. The vineyard below is where the wine originates.
