The place name Breisig comes from the Celtic term "Brysich", which means rugged mountains.

Hiking trail 2 leads to the mountain ridge "Auf dem Hahn" where 2500 years ago the Celts lived and used the bizarre landscape for their protection. Because of the altitude and the steep slopes they were protected from attackers.

Today this place offers a wonderful view as far as the Siebengebirge. The view of Schloss Arenfels is also fantastic. Built in 1258 by Heinrich and Gerlach von Isenburg, the castle was never destroyed and was converted into a neo-Gothic palace complex in the 19th century by Zwirner, a master builder of the cathedral. Known as a seasonal castle, the complex has 365 windows, 52 doors and 12 towers.

Author’s recommendation

At the end of the hike you can enjoy a delicious and varied meal on the beautiful Rhine promenade in Bad Breisig.

Turn left at the exit Albert -Mertes-Straße until the crossroads / traffic circle, then turn right into Backesgasse. Continue straight ahead on Vogelsangstraße. Behind the playground turn left into the forest towards Schützenhaus. The path initially climbs steeply. After the first fork in the road, it continues on a serpentine road to the left. Next to beautiful viewpoints of the Rhine valley and Bad Breisig, there is a Celtic refuge in the entrance area of the path. Now the path moves away from the Rhine towards Mönchsheide. From Mönchsheide the path leads back towards the Rhine. After a short stretch along the forest nature trail, you will reach the viewpoint "Vier-Burgen-Blick" . The descent takes place at the Kesselberg.Continuing straight ahead, the B9 is crossed and now the path leads along St. Sebastianusstraße to the banks of the Rhine.  Via the car-free Rhine promenade, past the restaurants and bars, the path leads to the Kurpark and then via the Lohkump back to the Römer-Thermen.
