The Southern Section of the Goldsteig begins in Oberviechtach and leads south through the Bavarian Forest to Passau. In order to get onto the southern section of the route, you will turn off the main path in Oberviechtach after stage 7 (see https://www.alltrails.com/lists/der-goldsteig-im-oberpfalzer-wald) and walk towards Neunburg vorm Wald. This section of the Goldsteig is slightly more moderate than the northern route. It consists of beautiful views of the mountains, including the Zugspitze, Germany's tallest peak. It leads through great forested areas and eventually finishes in the city of Passau.
