Reizvolle Premiumtour direkt am Erlebnispark Teufelstisch mit dem gleichnamigen Wahrzeichen der Urlaubsregion Hauenstein.
A leisurely hike for both young and not so young with adventurous attractions - this is the Teufelstisch tour in Hinterweidenthal. As the name suggests, the main role of this ten-kilometre hike is the legendary Teufelstisch, the landmark of the region of Hauenstein.
This tour is particularly suitable for families because of the new theme park “Erlebnispark Teufelstisch”, which is aesthetically embedded in the rocky landscape. Above the park is the entrance to the premium trail. Along a narrow path, it leads parallel to the Salzbach towards Salzwoog. Along the way you pass the Schwammbonnquelle. This spring lies mystically concealed in a small pond in a gloomy forest. For those of you who want to enjoy this unusual atmosphere, they can either enjoy an extensive snack at the picnic area or relax on a wooden bench above the pond and listen to the quiet burbling of the spring water. Strengthened and ready to continue the hike, we soon reach the village of Salzwoog where the route leads around the elevation of the “Hoher Kopf” and back again into the forest.
A great view of the surrounding hillsides is offered by a charmingly- situated resting place with the appropriate name: "Schöne Aussicht". Now it is not far to the "devilish" sights, although the trail is anything but evil since the rays of the sun shine through the dense treetops making you feel closer to heaven than hell. After 30 minutes, you get to the bizarrely-shaped rock formation "Teufelsschmiede" and a few metres further on to the "Teufelsküche" - a multi-layered formation of red sandstone.
The main attraction of this trail comes towards the end: the natural monument "Teufelstisch” (Devil's Table). With a height of 14 metres and its unusual shape, it is the only geotope in the Palatinate. On the surrounding rocks, which have been rounded off smoothly by wind and weather, you can sit down and take a breather whilst enjoying this unique rocky outcrop. According to legend, the devil had set up two rocks as a table and then had a feast. After he had eaten to his fill, he left the table standing and went on his way. Fortunately, you have to confess with a wink, because the region of Hauenstein certainly would not like to do without this “devilish monument.
Don’t forget to take snacks with you in your rucksacks. The length of this tour makes it suitable for families. Refreshments can be found in the immediate vicinity of the Erlebnispark Teufelstisch or in the local gastronomy of Hinterweidenthal.
A trip to the amusement park Erlebnispark Teufelstisch is also worthwhile!
Für unterwegs sollten Sie sich auf Rucksackverpflegung einstellen.
Especially in the autumn it is also important to remember that leaves lying on the ground can conceal irregularities, such as roots, rocks or holes in the path. Following storms, trees can have been uprooted or have branches hanging down. Such path impairments have to be expected when using such trails . Especially in adverse weather conditions, it may occur that the trails and paths turn into muddy and slippery passages. Path impairments of this kind have to be expected when you go out for a hike. Not all rocks or slopes are secured with ropes or railings and sure footedness is required. Should you be of the opinion that these are not accessible to you then you should try and get around them.
