No journey is too long! The longest stage of the Pfälzer Weinsteig will bring you closer to the sky, whilst standing firmly on the ground and becoming more aware of the wonders of nature. From the market square in Neustadt you hike uphill to the Hambacher Höhe and the Nollensattel to then reach the natural monument of Zigeunerfelsen with its observation deck. You continue uphill towards the Nollenkopf and pass the Speierheld Unterstandshütte and the natural monument Hambach Bergstein. From the Sühnekreuz it is now only a few steps to Hambach Castle which you should definitely not miss visiting. Over the Sommerberg it goes uphill to the Hohe-Loog-Haus that serves snacks with a view of the southern Palatinate. Equally promising is the highest point of the Palatinate Forest, the Kalmit, overlooking the Rhine valley 500 m below. Again you can enjoy a refreshment at the Kalmithaus. You now see an ocean of stones under the trees – an ocean of stones? This natural monument, the Felsenmeer, is bound to fascinate you before the path leads down the Totenkopfstrasse through the valley leading to St. Martin.
