Knights, robbers and the Romans - they have shaped Bad Bertrich and its surroundings: In the time of the knights, two brothers built the later Entersburg, of which only the spectacular location remains today. Robbers started their raids from the dense forests and valleys around the Üssbach in the 18th century. And the Romans made the place what it is today - a spa and bathing resort with Germany's only Glauber salt thermal spring. On this circular hiking trail, narrow paths and wide trails lead to attractive places. A steep climb goes up to the Entersburg with the Steffenswarte, built in the 19th century. At just under 15 kilometres in length, you have the opportunity to delve deep into the knight-robber-roman stories of Bad Bertrich and experience them!

 

Highlights along the way:

• 1.4 km Elfengrotte

• 2.2 km Florian's hut

• 3,5 km Steffeswarte/Entersburg

Trotz nicht optimalen Wetter - hat diese Tour uns restlos begeistert. Sehr verschlungen und märchenhaft schön. Wundervolle Wasserfälle. Kurzweilige Rundtour.
