Soothing forests and beautiful brook valleys, that's what we experience on the Saar-Hunsrück-Steig between Blankenrath, Mittelstrimmig and Mörsdorf.

The first part of the leg passes through a hilly and quiet wooded landscape and we cross two idyllic stream valleys. Then the route goes over a ridge used for agriculture that offers grandiose views of the Eifel and Hunsrück.

After crossing the L202, the path runs parallel to the “Layensteig Strimmiger Berg” Traumschleife (Dream Loop). Once past the villages of Mittelstrimmig and Altstrimmig, it goes downhill into the beautiful scenery of the Bildbach stream valley that merges with the Mörsdorfer Bach valley. There the route cuts through a deeply etched, quiet valley along the Mörsdorfer Bach. There is a path that goes 1.5 km uphill to the destination Mörsdorf.

Roman excavations near Mittelstrimmig

Near Mittelstrimmig the remains of a Roman settlement (vicus) were found during excavations. It was on an important Celtic-Roman road.

 

"Schockkapelle” at Mittelstrimmig

It stands on the route of the gallows of the Winneberg-Beilstein counts from the Middle Ages. Those sentenced to death were led past the chapel to the gallows in the Middle Ages.

 

The Mittelstrimmig parish church, a three-aisled, five-bay hall church, was built between 1766 and 1769.

 

Geierlay hanging rope bridge - the longest one in Germany (360 m) goes across Mörsdorfer Bachtal between the parishes of Sosberg and Mörsdorf 100 metres in the air.

Equipment

The Saar-Hunsrück Climb is a natural path that is on soft forest floor, grass paths or alongside streams for 65% of its route. But this special quality can result in problems after long periods of rain, making parts of the route difficult to walk. We therefore recommend wearing sturdy shoes.

Questions & Answers

Question about Nathalie WIES · June 14, 2020 · Community
Bonjour, Concernant cette ballade, est-ce qu'il s'agit d'une boucle? Si non, est-il possible de revenir au point de départ? Y a-t-il un restaurant ou un endroit où manger sur cet itinéraire? Autre question : est-il possible de passer sous le pont pour les personnes qui ne souhaitent pas passer dessus? Cordialement. Nathalie.

Bonjour, il s'agit d'une randonnée d'itinéraire et non d'une randonnée circulaire. Il est possible de revenir à Blankenrath en taxi ou en bus en semaine. La connexion de bus passe par Kastellaun et dure plus de 2 heures. Sur le chemin, il y a un endroit à Mittelstrimmig (Gasthaus Zur Buche, uniquement le vendredi et le week-end) et un hôtel à Liesenich (Motorrad-Hotel Moselhöhe, un peu en dehors de l'itinéraire). À la fin de la randonnée à Mörsdorf, vous avez plusieurs options pour vous arrêter. Le pont suspendu est uniquement relié à la Sarre-Hunsrück-Steig par un chemin. Cela signifie que vous n'avez pas à traverser le pont si vous ne le souhaitez pas et pouvez également atteindre la vallée de Mörsdorf sur une plus longue distance. Si vous voulez faire une randonnée circulaire autour du pont suspendu (qui comprend le pont), il y a la Tour Geierlayschleife (https://www.tourenplaner-rheinland-pfalz.de/de/tour/praedikats-kurztour-praedikats-rundtour/geierlayschleife/19311967/) Cordialement votre Hunsrück-Touristik GmbH
