Let yourself be enchanted by the Birkenfelder Land: Lush forests, beautiful views, winding streams and mystical bogs await you. In this collection we show you the most beautiful hikes through the National Park region Hunsrück-Hochwald and the premium hiking region Saar-Hunsrück. Join them on their journey through the valley, hear the mill wheel of the grinding mill rattle, take a break on the sun-warmed rocks of the Wehlenstein and let yourself be captivated by the wild moor landscape of the Ochsenbruch. You will be accompanied on your tours of a species-rich flora and fauna. Wrapping a camera is worthwhile.

On the four dream loops you wander off the cream pieces of the national park region on excellent premium trails. Look forward to pure nature in Germany's youngest national park. In the 10,000-hectare area Hunsrück-Hochwald, which extends over the highlands of the low mountain range, nature can be wild. The routes vary in length and are also suitable for families with children. Young hikers can look forward to a very special tour in the enchanted forest: Together with Waldgeist Willy Wurzel, young and old hikers will run riot at the various stations. In addition to the dream loops we show you three more hikes in the hiking region Saar-Hunsrück, which emphasize the diversity of the landscape. After your tours you can expect cozy rest stops.

More information about the region and the hiking routes can be found here: birkenfelder-land.de. What are you waiting for, let yourself be captivated by the wild beauty of the National Park region and experience absolute hiking pleasure.
