For over three hundred years there was a Jewish community in Wangen (today a part of Öhningen), whose everyday life Jacob Picard recorded in his stories from rural Jewry. The hike leads through the lower village, which is characterized by Jewish houses, into the Jacob Picard memorial room in the former town hall and further up to the Jewish cemetery, which is located on the edge of the forest above the village.
