Pfälzer Höhenweg Stage 7: Lauterecken - Wolfstein

The adventure itself begins in the historic centre of Lauterecken. Along the River Lauter, the trail leads to Lohnweiler with pleasant ups and downs through tree groves and fragrant meadows where nature can be experienced intensely. At the narrowest point of the Lautertal are the ruins of Alt-Wolfstein which have been waiting for nearly 1,000 years for a successful attacker, its younger sister Neu-Wolfstein likewise, albeit only 100 years. Onto the Königsland with the 568 m high Konigsberg, the Leienberg, the Hahnenkopf and the 546 m high Selberg. On its summit is the Selberghütte and a 17 m high steel viewing tower . For those who dare to climb, the world is then at your feet. Past the youth hostel, we reach the trail leading into the town of Wolfstein with its half-timbered houses and then further to the railway station. For those of you who would like to go further you can switch to the intersecting Veldenz trail in Aschbach or at the Selberg to the Remigius Wanderweg.
