    The Karlstal is a beautiful gorge with many rocks and some caves. You always walk along the stream and can enjoy a varied walk.

  • Because this hike is incomparably beautiful, varied and also accessible for "older semesters" - without spending too much.

  • The Karlstal gorge is one of the most beautiful hiking kilometers in the Palatinate Forest. It's best to go during the week so that the photos are not just strangers.

  • The path leads right on the left over the Moosalbe, past moss-covered boulders. Beautiful impressions and noises of the Moosalbe, partly very natural. Depending on where you start, you should go back the same way with a different perspective. (If it's not on the weekend)

  • Class gorge about 3 km long at Trippstadt. Walkable all year round.
    On the side you can even walk up and see the gorge from above. There are also small caves.

  • Nice ravine, but better to run under a week who can. Very busy on days off

  • Especially in summer a wonderful opportunity to escape the heat. Basically worth a visit, however, in every season. Due to the parking facilities at the lower end of the Karlstal gorge, at the Klugschen mill, also easy to reach for a short visit.

  • Very nice to hike through here. However, it should get quite crowded here at the weekend or after work. I was early in the week, there was nothing going on here.

  • It's well worth a short detour from the gorge to the rocky sea

  • A nice quiet and easy walk along a stream. There is a large parking lot near the head of the trail. This is really nice on a week day or early on the weekend.

  • Beautiful valley with lots of rocks along a stream from which there are many stairs. The whole thing seems a bit like an enchanted gorge.
    Highly frequented on weekends, a visit during the week is worthwhile.

  • The Karlstal is one of the most beautiful hiking destinations in the Palatinate Forest - perhaps even the most beautiful hiking kilometer in the Palatinate Forest. The path leads directly along the stream, changes here and there over a wooden bridge from one side to the other and benches invite you to linger. A small wooden pavilion stands in the middle of the gorge, is a popular photo opportunity and a place where you can really enjoy the torrent atmosphere.
