Tight paths wind through the narrow Nahe Valley. The trail runs through the “Kammerwoog and Krechelsfels” nature reserve, passes the remains of the Hoppstadt agate loop and a Roman settlement.
The dream loop has a varied route: Sometimes along the banks of the Nahe, in the forest and along steep rock faces. Directly on the banks of the Nahe, you reach the remains of the “Hoppstätter agate loop”, also known as the agate loop in the Burr. Built on this site in 1850, the grinding mill consisted of two houses and four grinding stones.
The path continues uphill in serpentines in the forest. There, an information board signals that you have arrived at the remains of the former “Villa Rustica”. Numerous pottery shards, fragments of a water pipe, slate slabs suggest that the house was covered with slate. Iron fittings, iron keys as well as fragments of wine amphorae all indicate that the Villa Rustica existed between the 1st and 3rd centuries AD. After crossing under the railway Saarbrücken-Mainz line, we have a great view of the opposite rock face of the “Kammerwoog-Krechelsfels nature reserve”.

Hiking footwear essential!
Our tips for carefree hiking fun
Hiking is the perfect sport. With the right clothes and shoes, it's twice as much fun. Functional clothing, poles and breathable backpacks are good choices when hiking. But good footwear is indispensable. Sturdy jogging or leisure shoes are at best only suitable for short distances on flat paths. For longer walks, we recommend sturdy hiking boots with non-slip soles. Also remember to take sunscreen and a drink. A litre of water is best. For longer routes we recommend a packed lunch because there is not always somewhere to stop off.
