Hiking as well as stopping for a refreshment is the motto of the Pfälzerhüttetour ..

 Our trek begins at the Wanderparkplatz Albersweiler-St. Johann and takes us to the edge of the village before going off to the left through the Schlossstraße. We follow the signs with a brown tavern icon on a yellow background and go past the Annahof walking between forests and vineyards until we reach Frankweiler. At the entrance to Frankweiler, we turn left into the forest.

 

From here it goes uphill to the Ringelsberghütte then downhill into the Hainbachtal and on to the St. Annakapelle. We cross the Hainbach in front of a large brick building. Behind it we turn right along the foot of the Kittenberg and through an avenue of lime trees in the spa town of Gleisweiler. Having reached the sanatorium in the Badstraße, we turn to the left following a right turn. We now walk uphill past the sanatorium grounds and into the forest to the Luitpoldplatz where we keep to the right.

 

The path leads us first in a northerly direction, then a right curve through the forest to the St. Annakapelle. The chapel, situated high above the Rhine valley on an extension of the Teufelsberg has attracted pilgrims for many centuries. After enjoying the view, we go a few yards further to the St. Anna-Hütte and turn there to the left. The trail now leads us through dense green vegetation to a view from the Trifelsblick-Hütte.

An information board tells us all we need to know about the landmarks now in sight. Even the Orensberg, which we will be climbing in the course of the tour, can be seen from here. First, however, we follow the path to the Dreimärker and the Landauer Hütte. We now go counterclockwise around the Orensberg passing the lookout point on the Orensfelsen and follow the familiar trail mark in the direction of the Naturfreundehaus Kiesbuckel and Albersweiler.

 

At the Naturfreundehaus we then follow the path downhill back to our starting point in Albersweiler-St.Johann.

Safety information

Despite the well-signposted trail markers along the premium hiking trails, we recommend for security reasons to always have an appropriate hiking map so that, for example when a storm occurs, you can quickly either find shelter or get out of the woods.

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.

Schöne Tour mit guten Ausblickmöglichkeiten. Gut machbar für einen Vormittag am Wochenende. Nachmittags tauchen hier auch vermehrt Mountainbikeler auf, was etwas stört. Sonst 5/5 Sternen. Die angegebenen 6 Stunden zählen wohl auch nur wenn man in jeder der Hütten einkehrt. Ich habe die Tour in 3h machen können und schwer ist auch anders...

Super toller Rundweg. Wir waren mit Cattle Dog Charu unterwegs, 7 Stunden 20 Minuten in 27,22 km. Die letzten 5 km haben wir den Abzweig von der Beschilderung übersehen, so dass ich vom Garmin etrex eine Route zum Parkplatz berechnen liess. Zudem haben wir 17 Geocaches auf dieser Wanderung mitgenommen:-). Wir sind alle kaputt, aber glücklich. Tolle Ausblicke, schöne abwechslungsreiche Strecke. Tritt sicher sollte man allerdings sein. Teils sehr schmale Pfade, auf denen nur hintereinander gegangen werden kann und zum Teil ist es auch die Strecke für die Mountainbiker. Hat aber alles gepasst. Gerne wieder und nur zu empfehlen.

Ich bin nur einen Teil der Route gelaufen, entlang der berggrenze und dann durch das Tal, direkt zur kandier Hütte. Der Weg war sehr schön, kalt im frühen Herbst und mit eins zwei schönen Aussichten.
