Deutsch-französischer Burgenweg


 Premium hiking - from castle to castle without a border - in the centre of the cross-border biosphere reserve Pfälzerwald-Nordvogesen.

 This new 31,8km long premium trail is a rendezvous between Alsace and Palatinate, in the Dahner Felsenland and the Vallée de la Saue. Eight mighty castles stand on steep rock formations and hills , or even almost down in the valley and line the wayside and are evidence of a often very turbulent regional history. Many of the fortresses are shrouded in mysterious stories and legends , so that they appear even more mysterious. Mighty rock formations (some with lookout points) stand by the wayside, wild forest landscapes and romantic valleys are a delight for all nature lovers whilst   idyllic German and French villages invite you to stay longer.

The trail is an unhurried two-day tour with the possibility of stopping overnight along the route. However, you can also divide the route into two or three round trips. There is specific information for this purpose together with tour flyers and general information available at the Tourist Information Dahner Felsenland, Schulstr. 29, 66994 Dahn, Tel .: 06391-9196222, www.dahner-felsenland.de , tourist.info@dahner-felsenland.de.
