Tips

  • Hunsbuckel

    The Elfenlay dream loop offers a wonderfully varied program. From the view of the route and viaducts of the Hunsrückbahn, great forest paths and steep switchbacks to grandiose views of the Rhine loop at Boppard.

    The dream loop Elfenlay deserves its name and is a great tour with a little bit of ambition.

    Quiet hiking trail with great views of the Rhine, the stream, huts and opportunities to linger. There are enough benches for a short break to sit during the route.

    Directionssaar-hunsrueck-steig.de/traumschleifen/elfenlayElfenlay dream loopWhere is the world's largest loop in the Rhine, where is the steepest railway line in Germany? You will find the answers in Boppard, the pearl on the Rhine. You will find wonderful views of the "Bopparder Hamm", the largest vineyard on the Middle Rhine with 75 hectares. The river here changes its direction in a double S-curve, twice by 180 degrees. The best views are from the Elfenlay and the Sabelsköpfchen. The Hunsrückbahn, which was opened in 1908 and is a listed building, is legendary and overcomes a height difference of 336m in 6km to Buchholz, the unique view of the 50m high viaduct over the Hubertus Gorge at Liesenfeld’s Hut. Source: Text information boardThe dream loop "Elfenlay" is 10.4 km long. It is moderately difficult. 707 meters of altitude must be overcome. The hike is recommended in a counter-clockwise direction.

    DirectionsFrom the Mühltal you can take the Kalmuther Weg to get to the start and destination and turn right after the railway underpass into the "Elfenlay" path Viewpoints “Somborns Ruh” and “Heinz-Bach Eck” lead to the “Kurt-Alich-Blick”, from where you can enjoy the unique view of Boppard and the Rhine. After a few meters through an oak grove, the path winds downhill. crosses the Hunsrückbahn and leads to the Mühlbach, the quiet splashing of which accompanies the hiker along the Helenen and Kronprinzenpfad for a while it continues to "Liesenfeld's Hütte" with a great view of the "Hubertus Viadukt", immediately afterwards to the "Hubertusschluchtblick", the highest point of the dream loop at 337.5 m. Then it goes through varied woodland back to the Burdenbach, which accompanies the path down to the ascent in the direction of "Sabelsköpfchen". The vantage point at the "Sabelsköpfchen" refuge rewards hikers for their efforts with a magnificent view of the Bopparder Hamm with the largest Rhine loop in the world. The path now continues down the valley to Burdental, from where it crosses a small bridge onto the old Burdener Weinbergsweg which then leads in the direction of Kalmuttal. When you arrive at the "Schoppenstecher" restaurant, after a long rest it is only a short distance to your destination. Source: Text information board
