"The opportunity to enjoy a great landscape in peace and quiet , while meditating and thinking about the growth and decay of nature and the insignificance of one's self". This was what the initiator of this trail had in mind so that hikers could find the way back to their senses and can satisfy their longing for mindfulness and a deceleration of their lives. But not only lovers of nature but also those of you interested in culture, history and religion will be rewarded by the landmarks of this trail. The Kapellenpilgerweg leads past churches and chapels, crossing a splendid landscape between deep forests and vineyards and offers wonderful views past castles and ruins right up to the border to France. Pastor Unkrich, one of the initiators of this trail, sees the Kapellenpilgerweg as a way to bring the body, mind and soul back into harmony with each other"Just enjoy the peace and quite on the way to finding your own very personal oasis "!

Safety information

The following generally applies:

In autumn in particular, it is important to remember that leaves lying on the ground can hide bumps, roots, stones and holes in the path. Trees can topple and branches can fall down after thunderstorms and rainstorms. Natural paths can become muddy and slippery, especially in poor weather conditions. Not all rocks and precipices are secured with ropes or railings. You need to be sure-footed in certain areas. Damage to paths of this kind is to be expected on hikes. If you feel that certain sections of the path are not passable for you, please avoid them.

NOTE:

We endeavour to announce all closures due to forest work or hunting parties on this platform. Nevertheless, sometimes there are situations where hiking trails are closed and we may not have been informed. If you unexpectedly encounter a road closure or diversion, please follow the instructions for your own safety.

Nikolauskapelle Klingenmünster

Turn-by-turn directions

The trail leads from Bad Bergzabern to Klingenmünster and starts in the spa park at the St. Jakobus-Pilger-Statue.  When walking through the park, it is well worthwhile to visit the Taufkirche of the Hlg. Edith-Stein – the St. Martin Kirche - past the evangelische Marktkirche on the way to imposing Bergkirche. From the Bergkirche you take a path upwards to the monastery of the Kloster Liebfrauenberg and having enjoyed the magnificent panorama views soon arrive in Pleisweiler-Oberhofen. On the hill above Gleiszellen you see the Dionysius-Kapelle and continue the way to Klingenmünster. There you can take a detour to Klosteranlage Klingenmünster. After that there is a short climb to the Euthanasie-Denkmal at the Pfalz-Klinikum and from there the marked path to the Nikolauskapelle.
