Ebernburg castle with its 360° panoramic view, the Burgdorf, the path along the banks of the Nahe through the meadow landscape past the Rotenfels massif characterise this tour, as does the ascent into the mixed forest near the village of Norheim up to a plateau that once again offers views far into the North Palatinate mountains. From afar we can see a picturesque castle ruin on a ridge.  Forest, meadows, river landscapes, a plateau that makes every tree a character actor, make the hiker's heart beat faster.

Author’s recommendation

Visit the stone sculpture museum, enjoy a good glass of wine in one of the rustic inns in Ebernburg after the hike.

Safety information

In rainy periods, parts of the path may be affected by wetness. In case of high water in the Nahe floodplain, please use the cycle path on the old railway line. The diversion is signposted. The critical water levels for accessibility can be found at . The critical levels are Boos from 2.00 metres, Bad Kreuznach from 3.50 metres. From these water levels, the paths become very difficult to pass, so you should follow the diversion.

Warning: Oak trees can be infested with the oak processionary moth over large areas. The caterpillar of the oak processionary moth is a health hazard. The stinging hairs of the caterpillars contain a nettle poison. They can also be carried by the wind. Contact with the caterpillars can be harmful to humans and pets. Caterpillar dermatitis is particularly common, with the following symptoms: Skin rashes and redness, slight swelling of the skin, wheals, itching and burning all over the body. If the stinging hairs (which contain thaumatopoein) are inhaled, this can lead to irritation of the mucous membranes of the mouth and nose, bronchitis, asthma or even allergic shock. Even after the life cycle of pupa, caterpillar and moth, the empty webs with their stinging hairs pose a threat over a longer period of time.

Precautionary measures:

  • Observe the warning advice
  • Infested oak trees should be avoided (do not use seating groups in the vicinity).
  • Caterpillars and webs must not be touched under any circumstances (never try to destroy webs yourself)
  • Do not lay or sit on the ground in the vicinity of infested oak trees.
  • Protect body with clothing (neck, arms)
  • Lead animals on a leash, stay on the path
  • Report findings: These can possibly be professionally removed with special equipment, endangered areas can be marked.
  • If you have come into contact with the stinging hairs of the caterpillars, you should change your clothes and take a shower.
  • Clothing must be washed at 60°C minimum

Turn-by-turn directions

From the hike portal, we approach the castle vineyard paths. Cross the Ebernburg bridge to reach the courtyard of the historic castle (> exhibition). From up here we have a beautiful view of Rheingrafenstein, Rotenfels and Porta Nava. Now descend past the Sickingen-Hutten monument down to the Kuna Park by the river. We follow the riverside path into the Nahe meadows, the imposing steep face of the Rotenfels building up more and more in front of us. Below the Rotenfels we are very close to the Porphyry rock. The route continues through the Nahe Valley on varied paths and through the wide floodplain landscape near Norheim. After crossing the Nahe cycle path, our path leads gently and steadily uphill along pastures and through forest. Once at the top, we reach the picturesque Kafelsblick with charming rest hut in a cul-de-sac. Comfortable forest paths lead to Birkerhof. From there, the trail descends on meadow paths and along the vineyards. At the stone sculpture park of the Fondation Kubach-Wilmsen with its architecturally outstanding museum, we again enjoy the magnificent view of the Rotenfels. Across meadow paths we go back to the hike portal.

Highlight ist auf jeden Fall der weg durch die Auen Landschaft am Rotenfels entlang. traumhaft schön. Ansonsten muss ich den Vorrednern Recht geben. Relativ unspektakulär, viele breite Wege. Das Stück durch den Ort ist relativ muffig, irgendwie wirkt vieles im Ort verlassen oder verwahrlost. Beschilderung und Rastplatz sind allesamt in Ordnung. Insgesamt ein schöner Weg, der auch im November Spaß gemacht hat.

Schöne leichte Rundwanderung zumeist über Forst- und Wirtschaftswege entlang der Nahe und über die Weinberge auf der Höhe zurück. Gut ist die Ausweichmöglichkeit an der Nahe über das ehemalige Gleisbett (heute Radweg) der Glantalbahn bei nasser Witterung oder Hochwasser. Es sind ausreichend Rastplätze vorhanden, die Beschilderung ist durchgehend gut.

Schöner, lückenlos markierter Weg, der von der tollen Landschaft und den vielen Impressionen lebt. Die Ausblicke vor allem zum Rotenfels sind schon beeindruckend. Ich würde den Weg eher als "Verbindungsstück" sehen, zwischen der "Lemberg-Tour" oder auch einer Tour am Rheingrafenstein oder Rotenfels. Als eigenständige Tour hat diese Classictour hier natürlich seine Daseinsberechtigung, fällt dann aber doch insgesamt ein wenig ab, zu den genannten anderen Wegen. Sicher ein guter Wandertipp für nicht ganz so fitte Wanderer bzw. Wanderern, denen die anderen Wege nebendran durch die Felsmassive etwas zu anstrengend sind.
