After a short time, path 8 turns right again and separates from RheinBurgenWeg . The ground becomes rocky and can be slippery in bad weather conditions. After reaching the plateau, the trail continues through the woods to the Rhine side of the mountain. There is a Celtic hilltop settlement in the hiking area, but only the ditches are still preserved. Then follows a fantastic view of Rheineck Castle and Arenfels Castle. After 100 metres you are on the Reutersley, a beautiful vantage point overlooking the romantic Rhine Valley. The term ley has the meaning rock/slate. On a rocky path, path 8 now leads back to the castle path. Follow the castle path into the valley. At the Wagram Bridge, go down to the Rhine and past the ferry to the spa gardens. Then turn left through the spa gardens and walk through the subways to the Römer-Thermen.
