Saar-Hunsrück-Steig - Stage 11: Morbach – Langweiler – Kempfeld

From the Ortelsbruch nature reserve, we climb to the heights of the Idarwald and in between enjoy the views of the Hunsrück in the direction of the Moselle. At the end of the descent, an idyllic pond invites you to take a rest. The first place after the descent is Langweiler, where we can experience a wonderful distant view to the Steinbachtalsperre and the Wildenburg.

Through agriculturally used areas we go downhill from Langweiler. We cross the informative geopark Krahloch andclimb up again to the impressive rock landscape "Kirschweiler Fortress". The descent into the Idarbach valley is full of experiences. It leads past rock formations, giant trees, views and partly over serpentines.

The ascent to the Wildenburg leads through gigantic Rosselhalden. Afterwards we walk through high forests and reach the Wildenburg with the worth seeing game enclosure. From the Wildenburg, a 1.5 km long access road leads to Kempfeld.
