    Is it the sun chairs? (I don't even know the name in English, I'm not close to finding the name in German! )

      Yes, these sun chairs have a special name. Try to find out why.

          I am sorry, it is not Schönwald. They don't have such chairs there, as far as i know.
          It is located North of Schönwald.

              Good guess. But no. You can actuelly see the Westweg from there, it is about 4km west of the Westweg.

                Re: What place is this?

                If you put the information together, the searching area is not so big anymore. You know that the location is North of Schönwald and about 4 km west of the Westweg. That cuts off 130km Westweg between Basel and Schönwald. The remaining 157km are between Schönwald and Pforzheim.

                But i will give you another clue. You could have known it, the water west of the Westweg runs directly to the Rhine. The village near the location is famous for it's Mineral Water, which is filled in bottles and sold in the whole area (there are some more such villages in the Black Forest, but try to find the right one).

                  I know mineral water is bottled in Freudenstadt but it's not the only one place in this area.

                    Yves, that is not correct. There is no "Freudenstädter Sprudel" existing. But nevertheless you came closer to the right place.

                      So, by searching for Schwarzwald Sprudel, I found a reference to Bad Peterstal-Griesbach then a google images link to here:

                      Which could just be Ralf's picture!!

                      'Himmelsliegen am Wiesensteg.'

                      Heaven beds, heaven recliners, something like that? Can't think of an English phrase that fits!
                      Cheers,

                        Uuuupss. Shouldn't have mentioned "Sprudel"...

                        We see the southernmost point of the "Wiesensteig", a new nature trail near Bad Griesbach.

                        I thought so that these "Himmelsliegen" won't have an English translation so far. These sunchairs are quite popular now, since walking means no more just doing kilometers or miles but to have a nature experience like watching the sky as here seen. Last weekend we prepared a tour there, which will we do with a group in April. I hope, we have spring then with a lot of nice pictures.

                        Well done, Steve. Over to you.

                            Sorry, Mark, for this speed-posting!!

                            I am just cleaning the mess up on my desk before leaving in farm vacation tomorrow and therefore in a bit of a hurry.

                            Sorry, sorry sorrysorry

                              That's fine. Most of the time I don't know who I am either. Have a good holiday!

                                OK - just a quick puzzle then. Don't think this will be too taxing.

                                Where is this?

                                Cheers,
