Half-day tour around the Ebernburg, along the romantic river Nahe, through forest and vineyards with beautiful distant views.
Ebernburg castle with its 360° panoramic view, the Burgdorf, the path along the banks of the Nahe through the meadow landscape past the Rotenfels massif characterise this tour, as does the ascent into the mixed forest near the village of Norheim up to a plateau that once again offers views far into the North Palatinate mountains. From afar we can see a picturesque castle ruin on a ridge. Forest, meadows, river landscapes, a plateau that makes every tree a character actor, make the hiker's heart beat faster.
Visit the stone sculpture museum, enjoy a good glass of wine in one of the rustic inns in Ebernburg after the hike.

In rainy periods, parts of the path may be affected by wetness. In case of high water in the Nahe floodplain, please use the cycle path on the old railway line. The diversion is signposted. The critical water levels for accessibility can be found at Hochwasser-rlp.de . The critical levels are Boos from 2.00 metres, Bad Kreuznach from 3.50 metres. From these water levels, the paths become very difficult to pass, so you should follow the diversion.
Warning: Oak trees can be infested with the oak processionary moth over large areas. The caterpillar of the oak processionary moth is a health hazard. The stinging hairs of the caterpillars contain a nettle poison. They can also be carried by the wind. Contact with the caterpillars can be harmful to humans and pets. Caterpillar dermatitis is particularly common, with the following symptoms: Skin rashes and redness, slight swelling of the skin, wheals, itching and burning all over the body. If the stinging hairs (which contain thaumatopoein) are inhaled, this can lead to irritation of the mucous membranes of the mouth and nose, bronchitis, asthma or even allergic shock. Even after the life cycle of pupa, caterpillar and moth, the empty webs with their stinging hairs pose a threat over a longer period of time.
- Observe the warning advice
- Infested oak trees should be avoided (do not use seating groups in the vicinity).
- Caterpillars and webs must not be touched under any circumstances (never try to destroy webs yourself)
- Do not lay or sit on the ground in the vicinity of infested oak trees.
- Protect body with clothing (neck, arms)
- Lead animals on a leash, stay on the path
- Report findings: These can possibly be professionally removed with special equipment, endangered areas can be marked.
- If you have come into contact with the stinging hairs of the caterpillars, you should change your clothes and take a shower.
- Clothing must be washed at 60°C minimum
