Beautiful and challenging circular-hikes in Rhineland‑Palatinate

The 200-odd certified short and circular walks in Rhineland‑Palatinate are ideal for a half or even a whole day. These are exceptionally lovely, adventurous walks lasting between half a day and a whole day, depending on the length of the route and your stamina, which offer the same level of quality as the designated long-distance hiking trails. They lead through mystic forests and deep river valleys, through lovely grasslands, past vineyards of varying steepness, lofty castles, massive cliffs and long-extinct volcanoes. These paths have their own names and signposts in the different regions: In the Eifel, there are the dream paths and the premium trails in the ‘NaturWanderPark delux’, there are wonderful circular walks of varying sizes in the Hunsrück, the many facets of the Lahn called “Lahn Facetten”, the “Seitensprünge” on the Moselle, the “Vital Touren” along the Nahe, the “Hiwweltouren” in Rhine-Hesse, the premium circular trails on the Romantic Rhine and the Wäller Tours in the Westerwald.
