Traces of the Middle Ages
On parts of the Middle Ages path, which is parallel to Herrstein, you follow the traces of the past, e.g. the route of an old Roman road and a historic gallows site. You can learn about this time from the information boards on the Middle Ages path, including about Hildegard von Bingen, who was born nearby.
