Following this exertion, there is a smaller climb from Bann which covers 80 m of ascent over a distance of 1.5 km. From here, there is a flat section along the plateau towards the south.

Starting in Miesenbach, the Sickinger Mühlen Cycle Route heads alongside the road to Ramstein. Here it is worth visiting the Museum im Westrich. The cycle path continues through drained moorland into the Sickingen town of Landstuhl. Here, the city section of the Sickinger Mühlen Cycle Route branches off the main route and takes cyclists through the historic old town with its half-timbered houses, bourgeois villas and historic 19th-century buildings up to the city’s most famous landmark, Nanstein Castle. The castle was built by Emperor Friedrich Barbarossa in 1150 and provides the backdrop for the Landstuhler Burgspiele theatre shows in summer.
The main route of the Sickinger Mühlen Cycle Route runs along the outskirts of the city past Silbersee lake to Kindsbach. The cycle path continues along well-defined forest tracks to the Forsthaus Kahlenberg lodge, where the city section rejoins the main route. The cycle path passes the sports field as it continues to Bann. From here, the Sickinger Mühlen Cycle Route climbs sharply onto the Sickingen Heights. The cycle path runs along the ridge for around 10 kilometres, and gives cyclists the impression of flying above the whole region as they enjoy stunning views.
In even-numbered years, the “Autofreies Wallhalbtal” cycling event takes place in spring. Cars are banned from the Wallhalb valley for a day from the Sickingen town of Landstuhl to Wallhalben and Thaleischweiler-Fröschen.
