Short but crisp hike through the Hunsrück. After the start in Monzelfeld, the hike first leads through open field and meadow landscapes, then through the forest.
Distance 8.9 km
Varied: first long fields, then dense forest.Insights on the hiking tour:The trail starts in the centre of Monzelfeld at a fountain, which reminds you of the mining industry that was practised in Annenberg since the 16th century. It then leads through the forests of the Hunsrück community, opening up magnificent views of meadows and forests. In the Hinterbachtal valley you will come across old mills and the Förster Kleinmann Hut - it is the eponym of this hiking trail. The trail continues into the small village of Annenberg. The mining of silver-bearing lead ore was the reason why the former mining settlement of Annenberg was established in the middle of the forest in the 16th century.There are no refreshment stops along the way, so we recommend that you do your shopping in Monzelfeld. There are good places to rest on benches along the route and at the Förster Kleinmann Hütte. There is also a pizzeria at the beginning/end of the tour in Monzelfeld which invites you to stop for a bite to eat.Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)
In the middle of the forest you meet the small village of Annenberg. Why? In the 16th century, lead ores containing silver were mined here - Annenberg is a former mining settlement. An artists' café opens there on Sundays and public holidays from 1 May to 31 October.
