Saar-Hunsrück Climb - 16th Leg: Rhaunen - Laufersweiler - Sohren (North)

From Rhaunen, the route accompanies Idarbach with its historic mills for 4 km; of these, Weiterbacher Mill is still operational and has a small mill shop.
From Reitzenmühle the route goes through a wood along with the “Kappleifelsen-Tour” and “Via Molarum” Dream Loops. Between Laufersweiler and Niederweiler we experience an atmospheric change from forest to agricultural meadow landscapes. After crossing the L182 we first go through a wood and then through idyllic meadows to the little village of Dill from the Middle Ages with its imposing castle ruin and Baroque village church.
Behind Dillerbach we follow a reconstructed part of the old Roman road and a short time later reach an imitation Roman guard tower. We then follow a stretch of disused railway with great views of Idarkopf and its surrounding area to Sohren. On the north side a path goes into the centre for around one kilometre.
