Hiking the Habsburger Weg Part 3: From Brugg to Baden

The third part of the Habsburger Weg started in Brugg. This first part through Brugg was quite boring, except for the monastery in Brugg.

The journey became more interesting once I arrived in Königsfelden.

I really started to love Kürbis in this country!

‘Can we move on now?’

From there I walked to Turgi. A non-descriptive city, with the exception of the railway station, built in the form of a circle.

From there on the climb started to Chörnlisberg. I was not looking forward to the climb due to my calf muscle issue, and the fact that I am still recovering from COVID, but the climb was only 220 m, and very doable.

The walk from Turgi to Baden through the forest was beautiful. I really enjoyed it!

When we arrived in Baden, we came across the Stein castle. From there we had a great view across Baden, followed by an interesting descent into the Old City of Baden.

In the old city, I met two lovely people who also had a Stabyhoun, and who admired Paddy. We had a great conversation about Stabyhouns.

I am already looking forward to the 4th stretch of the Habsburger path!
