National Park Dream Loop "Kirschweiler Festung"


At 9.1 kilometres and only 300 metres in altitude, the Kirschweiler Fortress National Park Dream Loop is easy to hike in a good three hours. Good footwear is recommended because more than half of the trail leads along newly created paths and criss-crosses the boulder dump at the Ringskopf. The trail is marked "untraceable" throughout and can be hiked in both directions.

The scenically varied tour in the eastern part of the Hunsrück-Hochwald National Park (https://www.nationalpark-hunsrueck-hochwald.de) impressively shows the beauty of the gemstone region. Highlights of the hike are the quartzite rocks of the Kirschweiler Fortress with its breathtaking vantage points and the former Celtic fortification Ringskopf.

The dream loop is connected to the Saar-Hunsrück-Steig premium hiking trail. Access routes are marked from Hettenrodt and Allenbach.Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)
