Flat walk on bicycle path alongside Leth water stream to Bach.

Shortly after a steep start,the small road to follow goes up gently.
There is a possibility to follow a scenic trail (called and marked as Hohenweg) on the other flank of this valley to Madau or stay on the road.

Stupidely followed the map and E5 marked on road.

Taking a taxi ride from Holzgau to Madau seems to be the common things for E5 hikers.Few mini vans loaded with hikers passed me…
