Best Hiking Routes to Steckeschlääferklamm
  • Stephanie

    You are never alone along the Hasselbach. Out of numerous trees, a curious forest ghost observes. There are over 60, including witches, goblins, elves and trolls, the creek leads past almost all of them. Who can find them all?

  • One of the highlights in the Binger Wald / Morgenbachtal: The Steckenschlääferklamm. Ideal as a trip with the whole family. Who manages to discover all faces?
    Perfect place to switch off.
    Above the gorge there is a parallel path, which is also used by mountain bikers (I am one of them).
    Enjoy nature!

  • Not for nothing is this part of the Hildegard von Bingen trail. The carvings are z. T. very artfully executed and really worth seeing.

  • Steckeschlääferklamm is always worth a trip. A few of the carvings from previous years are now weathered, but various animal motifs have also been added and the bridges and bridges are stable in the renewed state

  • The way through the Steckenschläferklamm is always nice. Ideal for children to build the dam and let ships go.

  • Greatly designed small valley along the Hasselbach. You cross the stream back and forth over many bridges. Funny fantasy faces are carved into the trunks of the trees, which grin at you especially when crossing the bridges. Large resting place in the middle of the gorge. Part of the RheinBurgenWeg stage 13 from Trechtingshausen to Bingen. Length of the gorge about 300 meters. Frequented by families, there is a parking lot nearby.

  • If you prefer to be lonely on a nice, warm sunny day, you should try the outdoor pool instead of here 😁For those (like me) who don't understand the local accent right away: "Steckeschlääfer" are those who drag their hiking sticks behind them (let them drag) de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steckeschäferklamm

  • Super suitable for families with children - take your clothes with you for the little explorers;) Our children (6 and 8 years) like to climb in the wide slopes and splash in the stream water. Sometimes a small dam is built. The carved faces are always worth seeing. You can stop off nearby after your adventure.

  • The path leads over many beautiful wooden walkways over the Haselbach and there are great carvings of "forest spirits" in the trees. A very nice section of the route that is easy to master.

  • The Steckeschläferklamm is simply recommended.
    Starting in 1971, the Weilerer Wanderfreunde Steckeschlääfer built 15 bridges over the Hasselbach, making the gorge accessible for hiking. Member Franz Kellermeier carved 46 small works of art, mostly faces, into suitable trees. Later he received support from the wood carving circle of Heimatfreunde Weiler. The two Klammgeist carvers Ingrid Pietsch and Heike Steinmeier have been responsible for maintaining the carvings and for redesigning the forest spirits in the gorge for many years.
    More than 65 hand-carved forest spirit faces, goblins, gnomes, dwarfs and other mythical creatures that have been carved into trees, tree stumps and roots along the gorge can be found in the gorge.
