Saar-Hunsrück Climb - 20th Leg: Mörsdorf - Bell – Kastellaun


The leg is medium/difficult due to the inclines/descents; you should be reasonably steady on your feet. The first part goes through the valley of the Mörsdorfer and Mastershausener stream. The untouched valley delights with excellent flora and glorious silence. At the confluence with the Sosberger Bach we meet the “Masdascher Burgherrenweg” Dream Loop and jointly conquer the castle hill on a sometimes rocky path. After a well-earned rest in the original hunter’s hut, we hike over a plateau and return from there to the dreamy stream valley. The restored Balduinseck ruin then whisks us away to the Middle Ages. We pass the relics of quaint mills and secretive tunnels that are evidence of mining. Via Dielaysteig we conquer the plateau near Bell. We walk through Bell and ascend to Hunsrückhöhenstraße. A path links us here to the new Bell Animal Safari Park. After crossing the street we pass long-forgotten Celtic graves in the high mixed wood before reaching a great view towards Kastellaun from the “Hohe Buch” viewpoint. We then slope down gently to Burgstadt.
