You can get on anywhere on this short circular route. The "Little Dauner" offers a varied mix of asphalted paths and forest trails, of green nature and distinctive small-town character. The small river Lieser accompanies you on your way again and again. Past the old railroad line, through untouched, sparse forests and past quiet residential areas to the Daun spa park, this trail offers a unique fusion of urban and natural elements that make it one-of-a-kind. Daun-Gemünden enchants with its sleepy atmosphere. When you start at the GesundLand Tourist Information, you will arrive back in the pedestrian zone towards the end and thus in downtown Daun. On this way there is a connection to the 10 kilometer long Drees hiking trail, which invites you to a trip to the Daun Dunaris springs.The hike is sufficiently signposted according to the logo. Look for the green sign with white letters "KD".

Highlights along the way:

- 0.25 km Hotzendrees
- 3,5 km Viaduct Daun
- 4.4 km Kurpark Daun with Kneipp facility
- 7.0 km Wehrbüsch Chapel- 8,4 km volcano museum
