Tips and hintswww.remigius-wanderweg.de
During the ascent to the Potzberg, we pass the Stollenquelle, an old source of mercury and which even today colours the path in yellow. Once on the Potzberg, it is worth making a detour to the lookout tower, 562 m high, or a longer rest in the Wildpark Potzberg with its unique air show.
We continue through Föckelberg, down to Oberstaufenbach and then having reached Niederstaufenbach climb up the next hill. Having reached the summit we will be rewarded with the views of Wolfskirche Bosenbach. Through the dense forest of Bosenbach we reach the heights of Eßweiler that we then leave to visit the Sprengelburg. Once again, we then traverse forests and meadows with great panoramic views before we get to the tower of the Selberg.
In the course of the trail there are many benches and rest areas which invite you to linger as well as the numerous taverns and inns in the villages along the route.
