The leg has a great deal to offer, namely natural stillness in the impressive and original river landscape of the Hahnenbachtal.

Shortly after the start we experience fantastic views of Schmidtburg from the Middle Ages. Then we reach the former slate mine with an opportunity for a break. Next it is possible to visit a reconstructed Celtic village. The route then goes sometimes right by the stream, at other points further away, along the Hahnenbach. The last part is over Wartenberg which sometimes features lovely views towards Rhaunen and the surrounding area.

Author’s recommendation

Schmidtburg castle ruin

The high castle, which was created in 926, is divided into the upper and lower castle and is one of the region's largest castle sites. The castle was one of the homes of the Wildgrafen. Later it became the Trier Electorate state castle and housed an official ministry.

 

Herrenberg visitor mine

The Herrenberg visitor mine with a fossil museum and bistro impressively conveys

the heavy work in the mines of former ages to modern-day visitors. It opens up a world of fossils from olden times.

 

Celtic village Altburg

The Altburg high settlements was established by a Celtic tribe of Treveri around 170 B.C. After excavations between 1971 and 1975 it was reconstructed as

a prehistoric open air museum.

Equipment

The Saar-Hunsrück Climb is a natural path that is on soft forest floor, grass paths or alongside streams for 65% of its route. But this special quality can result in problems after long periods of rain, making parts of the route difficult to walk. We therefore recommend wearing sturdy shoes

Mangelhafte Beschilderung. Gerade vor Abzweigungen fehlen Hinweisschilder.
