The slogan for the tour keeps its promise: devilish climbs and heavenly prospects. The 15km premium trail   "Teufelstour" takes its name from the Teufelstein, a former Roman quarry in Frankelbach. Geological highlights   are explained on several information boards. A special feature: This path leads directly through the stone quarry of Sulzbachtal.

Supported by 1. FCK, (the local football team club)   the path was signposted using   the devil’s emblem from the FCK’s stadium Betzenberg. 

The mix of wild and romantic river valleys, steep climbs and a breathtaking view over the Palatine Uplands and the Palatinate Forest right up to the Donnersberg, makes the “devil’s tour” with its 15 km total length into a unique discovery tour of the Palatinate.

On narrow paths and trails which have hardly changed in the course of time we have the opportunity of passing through almost 300 million years of geological history. Passing both old and still active stone quarries, ambitious hikers can inform themselves on several geological information boards set up by the State Office for Geology and Mining.

For active recreation whilst hiking you should not forget to stop and take a break. Along the Teufelstour   you will find many beautiful places to rest and linger. The Panorama-Gasthof Emmerwiesenhof in Eulenbis , for example, is situated directly on this premium hiking trail.

In "Fossils worldwide", Hebelstraße 4 in Sulzbachtal the geological subsoil can actually be felt. This exhibition is constructed as both a sales and museum vicinity. A wide range of minerals and fossils, which partly come from the immediate vicinity of the Sulzbachtal , are on display.
