The Remigius-Wanderweg   passes along the uneven landscape of the Palatinate Highlands, with stunning panoramic views of both the Hunsrück and the Palatinate. 

Along the way, romantically-situated benches invite you to sit down and simply enjoy.

On this hike, there are numerous possibilities to stop for a refreshment.

 

Author’s recommendation

Tour for Beginners (stages) and experienced hikers (day trip). 

No round trip.

Previously organize repatriation.

The slopes can cope better with sticks.

Pure nature! Take time to enjoy nature.

Safety information

Partial results of the footpath across narrow paths and rocks. Good footwear is required.

For stroller the areas in the nature reserves are not suitable!

Especially in the fall is also necessary to ensure that the leaves lying on the ground can conceal irregularities, roots, rocks or holes in the road. With paths impairments of this kind you can expect when you take a hike. Should you be of the opinion that these are not accessible to you in particular cut, then you should get round. Especially in adverse weather conditions, it may be muddy and slippery passages come in natural ways.

Destination

Palatine Trail at 67753 Rothselberg (67752 Wolfstein – approximately 4 km - on Palatine Trail)

Turn-by-turn directions

From the train station, follow the yellow-marked trail leading to the Remigius Wanderweg and the Winterhelle. There, the blue-marked trail begins leading from Kusel into the forest. Passing the Rübezahl bank and the sequoias, we reach the hill in Haschbach and are already rewarded with the views of the Remigiusberg with its Propstei and on the other side, the castle of Lichtenberg. We explore the geological diversity of the region down in the quarry   (viewing path with many display boards) and climb up the Potzberg in Theisbergstegen. 

During the ascent to the Potzberg, we pass   the Stollenquelle, an old source of mercury and which even today colours the path in yellow. Once on the Potzberg, it is worth making a detour to the lookout tower, 562 m high, or a longer rest in the Wildpark Potzberg with its unique air show.

We continue through Föckelberg, down to Oberstaufenbach and then having reached Niederstaufenbach   climb up the next hill. Having reached the summit we will be rewarded with the views of Wolfskirche Bosenbach. Through the dense forest of Bosenbach we reach the heights of Eßweiler that we then leave to visit the Sprengelburg. Once again, we then traverse forests and meadows with great panoramic views before we get to the tower of the Selberg.

In the course of the trail there are many benches and rest areas which invite you to linger as well as the numerous taverns and inns in the villages along the route.
