Saar-Hunsrück-Climb - 12th Leg: Kempfeld - Herborn - Idar-Oberstein

The route from Kempfeld to the start of the leg is around 2 km and from the end to the historic marketplace at Idar- Oberstein 0.6 km. If you want to divide up the leg, you can use the 3.5 km route to Idar half way. The first few kilometres offer an exciting piece of nature and culture in the Hunsrück-Hochwald National Park with Wildenburg, the game preserve, Wildenburger Kopf and Mörschieder Burr. At Herborn we reach the “Petrified Visitors' Book” with the names of famous political and cultural figures. On natural paths we go over several ridges to the old town of Idar-Oberstein.
