    The Altschloßpfad is very well marked and leads you from the parking lot to the natural spectacle of the "Altschloßfelsen".

    - The rocks are an impressive natural / cultural monument near Eppenbrunn (Rhineland-Palatinate), in the Palatinate Forest, on the French border
    - If you do not love a "hike through the peoples", you should choose the "right time" for this exploration, you may / may be heavily frequented during holiday periods or when the weather is great!
    - but definitely worth a hike!
    - after the rocks - towards the French border - it was clearly "calmer".

    The Altschlossfelsen are included in the two premium trails "Altschloßpfad" and "Grenzweg". Both are approx. 10 and 11 km long hiking trails that run around the rocks (left and right). An approx. 1.5 km long red sandstone formation with varied color compositions that ensure an extraordinary hiking experience. Easy and problem-free in every respect for familiar hikers ;-)
    I recommend Eppenbrunn as a start / finish point, where you can also stop off very easily.

    Is easy to walk to the old castle rock with small children.

    The Altschloßfelsen can be very well negotiated as a round, in which one goes one way over the rocks, and the way back under the rocks back. There are various nice rest areas, small "cracks" from one side of the rock formation to another and small cave niches.

    Was there in November too, there wasn't so much going on and you could watch the natural spectacle in a relaxed manner. The trail is very well signposted. It is fantastic here.

    A narrow path leads along the rocks towards the rest area and viewpoint.
