The Cherry Route owes its name to the countless cherry trees which transform the Kohlbach Valley into a sea of blossoms every spring. It connects the Glan and Oster rivers in Saarland via the heights of the western foothills of the North Palatine Uplands. Featuring a mix of cycle routes along the Kohlbach and an undulating climb to the high points of the Oster, this trail is the perfect way to explore the scenery in the extreme west of the Palatinate.
The Cherry Route starts at the old train station in Schönenberg-Kübelberg (connection to the Glan-Blies Cycle Route). It leads gently uphill through the Kohlbach valley to Frohnhofen, mostly on designated cycle paths alongside the road, or sometimes off-road.
After Frohnhofen, it traverses the high points of the Oster, with some sharp climbs and steep descents, before ending up in the Ostertal valley en route to Osterbrücken.
The trail provides an unforgettably picturesque experience, particularly in spring when the large numbers of fruit trees – especially cherry trees – in the Kohlbach valley are in full bloom.
